For optimum results remove rust, rust scale, mill scale and deteriorated coatings by abrasive blasting to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1: 1988), blast profile max. 50 µm. If blasting is not possible remove loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and/or wire brushing to St 3 (ISO 8501-1: 1988). Zinc or aluminium corrosion products can be removed with Surfa-Etch 108 Etching Solution followed by rinsing with plenty of fresh water, or by brush-off blasting. Remove deteriorated coatings by scraping and wire brushing. Sand intact coatings to roughen the surface slightly. The surface must be clean and may be slightly damp during applicatio

    Reasons to Paint Cladding;

    Over the last 40 years cladding has become the material of choice for many commercial buildings. While the durability of the latest generation of cladding has improved, sooner or later you will face the choice to reclad or refinish your building.

    • Extend the lifetime of the cladding by up to 10 years
    • Much more cost effective than replacement
    • Minimal disturbance of the business processes
    • Protect against atmospheric, chemical and mechanical deterioration
    • Fully utilise the communication role of the building
    • Available in virtually any colour

    Guarantees, Warranties and Life Expectancies for Large Cladding Projects

    Painting cladding is much more cost effective and less disruptive to the building than replacement. Using our products, it is possible for any competent person to protect and rejuvenate their weathered cladding, improving its life expectancy.

    However, often larger cladding projects require some form of ‘guarantee’ for the client and/or building owner to provide peace of mind that the coating system applied to the cladding will last for an agreed period of time.

    We offer systems that can be used year round to provide up to 15 years protection when applied by an approved contractor to Plastisol HP200, HPS200, PVF2, Powder Coating, Galvanised Steel and more. More than 15 million squares metres have been protected with our systems that are available in virtually any colour including metallic shades protecting against atmospheric, chemical and mechanical deterioration.

    We will visit your site and carry out a full inspection, write a tailored specification to meet your requirements and offer an approved contractor for the application. We will never offer a contractor that we have not trained and approved, all our contractors have successfully completed specific product training on the systems they apply and are monitored regularly to ensure the highest standard of quality is achieved.

    By using one of our nationwide approved contractors for our products you enable yourself to take advantage of our guarantees, life expectancies and warranties. This means if we say our system is going to last a certain amount of time, or perform in a certain way and it doesn’t, you’re covered.

    If you’re a contractor and would like to become an approved installer of our systems please contact us on 0113 245 5450.
