This presentation - looks at the - process behind proposals, submittal practices, evaluation and value proposition of alternative protective coatings systems to conventional specified systems. Currently, there are many new coatings solutions and technologies that offer savings in time and dollars over older, though proven, technologies.
Decorative finishing materials provide a wide variance in coverage rates. Like straight painting with the production rate adjustments for spraying versus rolling, the application method significantly impacts the material coverage rate. Aside from the paint itself, decorative finishing can incorporate a number of the following products: Custom Modellos (one-time masking patterns), leaf or foil, stencils, and other media for embellishment (glass) which need to be appended to the pricing.
Major manufacturers of protective coatings, steel fabricators, painting contractors, galvanizers, and end users, were surveyed to identify surface preparation and coating application costs, coating material costs, typical industrial environments and available generic coatings for use within those environments, and expected coating service lives (practical maintenance time).
