Corrosion Protection

CORROSION PROTECTION

Corrosion and rust prevention is essential for metals used in environments where water, high humidity, mist and salt are factors. With over 40 years of experience in the marine and industrial environments, we have the skills and a wide selection of anti-corrosion coatings that overcome these challenges.

Typical applications for corrosion protection are:

  • Marine coatings
  • Industrial protective coatings
  • Building exterior protection
  • Steelwork protective coatings
  • Pipework painting
  • Vessel protective coatings

Why you can trust Bird and Goodwin

Bird & Goodwin are affiliated to NACE International who support corrosion control certification to promote public safety, protect the environment, and reduce the economic impact of corrosion.

Understanding the corrosivity of the environment to which the structure will be exposed, and a knowledge of the substrate leads to us defining clear and appropriate coating specifications.

We provide three types of anti-corrosion coatings:

  • Barrier coatings are non-porous and protect metal surfaces from corrosionsacrificial coatings provide a layer that corrodes in preference to the substrate and fluoropolymer coatings provide a thicker form of barrier protection (to over 800 microns) for applications operating in very aggressive and abrasive environments.
  • Sacrificial coatings provide a layer that corrodes in preference to the substrate fluoropolymer coatings provide a thicker form of barrier protection (to over 800 microns) for applications operating in very aggressive and abrasive environments.
  • Fluoropolymer coatings provide a thicker form of barrier protection (to over 800 microns) for applications operating in very aggressive and abrasive environments.

Modern durable protective coatings which, when used correctly, allow extended maintenance intervals and improved performance. Resulting in reduced maintenance costs.

Optimum protection treatment, combines appropriate surface preparation, suitable coating materials, required durability and minimum cost, Bird and Goodwin can guide you through this process, using modern surface treatment technology.

We find airless paint spraying gives the most reliable coating thickness, and significantly improves the performance of the coating over time.
