Is Surface Preparation Below Your Radar?

Compromising coating performance is your decision. Allowing power-tools, water-blasting, poor quality abrasive blasting or perhaps nothing at all, can start an immediate and accelerated cycle of corrosion and repair.

  • Confined spaces
  • Engineering spaces
  • Engine rooms
