Owners and specification writers have a way to ensure that qualified workers are hired to perform surface preparation and coating applications.
Failure of wastewater treatments plants due to corrosion can release hazardous waste that may be difficult or impossible to contain. Regulatory requirements regarding wastewater plants, pipes and equipment exist to eliminate sewage overflows and leaks. Many of these facilities are constructed with concrete, steel, iron, brass, copper or other materials subject to corrosion.
Industrial coatings can protect wastewater treatment plants from corrosion. Finishing Solutions Network has nationwide industrial coatings contractors certified in large-scale industrial painting and coating applications to protect your wastewater treatment plants from surface and structural damage. Eliminating corrosion in wastewater treatment plants reduces equipment failures, release of hazardous waste and unscheduled downtime.
The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and the Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC) established the Painter, Industrial Coating and Lining Application Specialist Certification program. They jointly published standards that define the criteria for the education, training, experience, knowledge, and motor skills required to prepare and apply protective coatings to steel and concrete surfaces of complex industrial and marine structures.
FSN’s nationwide industrial coatings contractors have completed the SSPC/NACE certification program, which ensures they have experience and training in all aspects of hands-on surface preparation and coating application for wastewater treatment plants.
Effectively applied industrial paint and coatings can eliminate corrosion and keep wastewater treatment plants running effectively. Industrial coatings should be selected based on the anticipated lifespan of the plant and its environment, including UV light, salinity, biological elements, temperature and other factors. FSN’s nationwide industrial coatings contractors are available to advise you at every step of the process.
