Chemical Resistant Coatings is a UK-based supplier of a variety of chemical resistant materials. Chemical resistant paint or epoxy coatings can be applied to materials in your building to ensure that they are durable.
We offer high-performance coatings that can be used on surfaces from wood to concrete and steel to plaster. Whether you are working at a high or low temperature, with solvents or looking for a solvent free option, we have something that will be suitable for your needs.
We also have coatings that are suitable for chemical bunds, buried metal, and heavy traffic areas in Cardiff. We can provide coatings that can withstand exposure to some of the most concentrated acids available to work with.
Whether you are looking to use a chemical resistant coating on the outside of a structure or installation that needs to stand up to the elements or use a chemical resistant paint inside your building in Cardiff, we can help. With harsher weather, acid rain, and chemicals that are used in workplaces, structural materials just do not last as well as they have previously.
Due to the highly aggressive chemical environments that many people now work in, we have evolved the products on offer to ensure that all staff have the protection of high-quality chemical resistance. Our chemical resistant paints offer excellent chemical resistance within laboratories and production facilities.
You can be sure that your staff, buildings, and materials are as safe as possible with the chemical resistance offered by our products.
If you require abrasion resistance in Cardiff, we have options that include a glass flake additive to provide this surface that can be used to offer resistance on various materials, including chemical bunds. We offer gloss finish and solvent free options to give you a professional finish while still providing suitable resistance for your industry.
If a solvent free or gloss finish option is what you are looking for, please let our team know so we can discuss those specific options with you.
Our company has been at the forefront of providing products that give chemical and abrasion resistance across the UK for almost two decades. Having started as a small business with a small client base, we have grown significantly over the last fifteen years due to the high-quality products we supply.
Our clients in Cardiff trust in the excellent chemical resistance that our products offer and the protection that they have with the right chemical resistant coating in place. If you would like to know more about what we can offer, please get in touch with our customer support team or read below for more details.
The cost of chemical resistant coatings will vary depending on a number of factors. All of our products offer a high chemical resistance; however, the cost of supply will depend on the following:
We can provide a no-obligation quote for the chemical resistance you need if you contact our customer services team using any of the methods below.
You can purchase chemical resistant coatings online for under £300 per tin; however, this will not include the application of the coating or the materials needed to apply it correctly. We include the supply, application, and quality assurance of all of our products in the cost that we quote to you.
You can purchase coatings yourself that are solvent free and in smaller volumes in single or as a two pack if you are interested in adding chemical resistance to a small area. A two pack would be enough if you want to add resistance to concrete in your garage if you are working with oils.
A two pack of coating is often enough if there will be potential exposure to oils or chemicals while restoring a car or during home improvement projects if you have a concrete floor. This is often far less expensive than industrial chemical resistant coatings. You should always check that the product you are purchasing meets your needs.
Our prices are competitive, and our installation staff are highly trained in the safe application of the materials you purchase. We will guarantee the work that we do and can provide chemical resistance against caustic fluids, sulphuric acid, chemical cleaning detergents, and more.
We supply and install a wide variety of chemical resistant coatings that can meet your chemical resistance needs. We can also provide abrasion resistant coatings if needed. More information regarding the coatings can be provided below.
Epoxy coatings are the most commonly used form of chemical resistant coating in Cardiff, and most coatings you will see will be this type. An epoxy coating is so widely used because it offers protection against the greatest range of chemicals and other substances, such as:
With protection offered against such a wide range of chemical substances, it is apparent why this type of coating is used to add resistance to concrete flooring in a wide range of business sectors. From industrial kitchens, garages, and factories, you will find a high build epoxy used to add longevity to the flooring in place.
Due to the high level of protection epoxy offers against bacterial cross-contamination, it is popular in the above settings. Epoxy can be used on metal, wood, and concrete substrates, so it can be used in most workplace settings and surfaces.
A coating made of epoxy will weaken over time with exposure to temperatures that fluctuate, so it will need to be reapplied if used in this situation. Epoxy will stain under chemical attacks and will be damaged by exposure to UV.
If you need something that is a little more flexible than epoxy, polyurethane is the next best thing. Although it offers resistance to fewer substances than epoxy, polyurethane offers protection at higher temperatures in addition to more flexibility in the materials it is used to protect.
Polyurethane offers protection against aggressive acids, alkalis, organic caustic fluids, solvents, fuel, and hydraulic oils. Polyurethane is the preferred coating used on both farms and factories in the dairy industry due to its ability to withstand the lactic acid found in this industry.
The issue to be aware of with polyurethane is that it is not as abrasion resistant as high build epoxy due to it being a softer material. There is also an issue with the application of polyurethane if there is humidity when it is being applied.
Humidity in the area of application can rule out polyurethane as the coating of choice in some areas. When discussing the circumstances and environment of the application, our Cardiff team will discuss this with you if you are interested in a polyurethane coating.
This is a very heavy-duty coating used in situations with heavy traffic of chemicals and acids on a regular basis. Chemical resistant paints will withstand 98% sulphuric acid, acetic acid, hydrochloric acid, phenol, hydraulic oils and other hydraulic fluids, gasoline, transmission fluid and numerous other chemicals.
If you are regularly working with acids and other caustic substances, then this type of paint is the best to use. The acid resistance of phenolic-based acid resistant paints is the best there is; this is one of the very few types of paint or coating that can withstand a sulphuric acid spill or chemical attack.
Chemical-resistant paint is the best option if you regularly work with aggressive chemicals or acids in Cardiff. Acid resistant paints are also effective against any chemical attack or spill in an environment with high temperatures.
Phenolic-based paints are rapid curing and can be used with a two-component epoxy to create a stronger resistant paint. Due to having a high acid strength resistance and the ability to withstand a concentrated chemical attack against various chemicals, this paint is a popular coating in some industries.
Acid resistant paints are used as coatings for steel storage tanks, piping, chemical storage, ductwork, and flooring in healthcare, electronic, science, and technology sectors. This type of paint is also used to increase chemical resistance in the flooring of chemical and waste treatment plants, power generator plants, and paper mills.
This type of coating is not recommended for use to protect against organic acids and solvents. The lower the amount of two component epoxy that is used for this paint, the lower the resistance there will be.
If you choose this option, we will discuss with you the strength of paint you will need to provide the right level of excellent resistance you can achieve in comparison to other standard coatings.
Fluoropolymer acid resistant paints are most commonly known for their household non-stick qualities, under names such as Teflon and Xylan. However, in addition to these properties, this type of paint can also provide high chemical protection at high temperatures, with a maximum use temperature of 300 degrees centigrade (572 Fahrenheit).
Fluoropolymer paints offer excellent resistance against various chemicals, including phosphoric acids or sugar solutions concentrated sulphuric, hydrochloric, and nitric acids. Paints made of this material will also withstand chemical attacks and hydraulic fluids and offer good resistance against day-to-day contact with chemicals.
Fluoropolymer acid paints are usually used where a low friction surface is required, such as in oil refineries, acid, or fertiliser plants. This type of paint also offers high performance on metal and concrete substrates where it is being used for secondary containment or internal lining.
Fluoropolymer coatings do not offer good resistance to weather conditions and so should not be used as a coating on external surfaces or steel in Cardiff. They also do not offer protection against acetic acid, acetones, or ketones.
When discussing what you need, we will discuss how much heavy traffic each coating will need to withstand. We will also discuss if you are interested in external or internal lining options or chemical attack protection to decide which coatings are suitable for your needs and what level of resistance you will require.
Below are the most common questions we are asked by customers and potential customers. If you require more information, please contact us for details.
The most commonly used chemical resistant coating is a high build epoxy coating, which offers protection against the widest range of chemicals and other caustic fluids. Epoxy coatings can be used on any surface and are extremely cost-effective.
Chemical resistant coating is a coating added to materials such as concrete, steel, wood, and other metals that protects them against various substances. Depending on the coating that you apply, it will be resistant to chemicals, acids, solvents, and more.
Some chemical resistant coatings are suitable for high temperatures, though others will only be suitable at a low temperature. A low temperature will be especially required if you use a dilute concentration for the coating, as this will make it less resistant to exposure to high temperatures.
A high build epoxy is one of the most popular coatings for resistance to chemicals. It can be used on both steel and concrete substrates, protecting against most chemicals, including solvents.
Acid resistant coating will give protection to surfaces such as concrete, wood, and metals where you are working with acid. You can apply different types of acid resistant coatings or paints depending on the concentration of the acid you are using.
