It is commonly known that the key to a good paint job is good surface preparation. This is especially true for industrial coatings because the conditions are harsh and there's often a lot at stake. Proper surface preparation requires a lot of periphery equipment and services. From scaffolding & dehumidifiers to vacuums and dust control to media & wastewater testing, Goodwest strives to provide turnkey project management.

Depending on the situation, Goodwest will utilize a variety of surface preparation methods to ensure the protective coating or lining will permanently adhere to the surfaces we are protecting. These methods include:

  • Low-Pressure Hydrocleaning (5,000 psi)
  • Degreasing
  • High & Ultra High Pressure Hydroblasting(10,000 — 40,000 psi)
  • Salts Removal featuring Chlor-rid
  • Abrasive Blasting (Steel grit, copper slag, garnet, etc.)

Goodwest utilizes these abrasive blasting methods to remove virtually any material or residue that's adhered to the substrate and prepare a clean, textured, dry surface that the protective coating material can permanently anchor into. It has become widely known in the protective coatings industry that the removal of all chlorides, nitrates, and sulfates from steel surfaces is critical to the long-term success of a protective coating. This is especially true when in immersion.

Steel and concrete substrates are often too pitted from corrosion & erosion for a successful lining installation. Goodwest provides welding, grinding, and resurfacing to create suitable steel and concrete surfaces. We can often refurbish extremely degraded equipment back to new condition for much less the cost of new equipment.
