Industrial Coating

Surface Preparation

There are many types of surface preparation that SWSC performs including dry abrasive blasting, wet/vapor abrasive blasting, vacuum blasting/power tooling, high pressure water blasting, and lead abatement.

Corrosion Control

There is a wide range of paint coating systems for steel structures to meet your specific project needs. SWSC has what it takes to help you to protect your steel structure worldwide. Our years of surface preparation and coating application on a multitude of steel surfaces and continual training of our employees allows SWSC to complete every job in a professional manner. Whether it’s painting the interior and exterior of a water tank, shielding a light house, or just giving your building a new look, SWSC will extend the life of your investment with a metal, epoxy, or powder coating designed to fit your needs. We have got you covered.

Specialized Applications

Some of the specialties applications performed by SWSC include but are not limited to metalizing, plural component materials, polyuria and other high performance coatings.

Plaster EIFS

EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System)

An Exterior Insulation and Finish System includes the following components:

  • Air/Moisture Barrier:
    Substrate joints receive a grid tape followed by the entire wall coated with a water resistive barrier
  • EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) Foam:
    Foam is available in different thicknesses and several compressive strengths to withstand different levels of impact and load
  • Basecoat with a Fiberglass Mesh:
    Specially woven and treated glass fiber mesh to provide strength and impact resistance embedded in a polymer modified, cementitious adhesive, and base coat.
  • Synthetic/Acrylic Finish Coat:
    Easy to clean and greater flexibility for crack resistance 100% acrylic-based coatings which come with integral color

EIFS is very versatile and can be used in all climates. It allows the designer greater flexibility with foam thickness, aesthetic reveals and custom foam shapes. It has insulating advantages with the EPS foam and comes in a variety of finishes and color.

Three-Coat Plaster

Three-Coat Plaster, commonly referred to as stucco, is typically applied over lath and includes the following steps:

  • Scratch Coat:
    Initial coast over metal lath and has a total thickness of 3/8”
  • Brown Coat:
    Second coat over the scrath coat and is when the flatness and true shape of the design is achieved
  • Finish Coat:
    Stucco finishes vary widely according to the requirements of the design

Stucco has been around for many years and is reliable, durable and long lasting.

Sound Proofing

Sound proofing can really assist in achieving a specific STC rating. The nature of the product absorbs sound into the material. It is ideal in mass transit station approaches. It is also an integral part of most venues where acoustics are a concern. It can be applied as a spray on texture all the way to a trowel applied smooth finish depending on the specified requirements.

Venetian Plaster

Venetian plaster is a lime based product that provides an elegant and high end finish. It is generally applied to drywall that has a level 5 finish. The product can be modified in color and texture and produces a one of a kind finish the will make any project unique.


Fireproofing Applications

Fireproofing materials are applied to structural steel components as part of a buildings passive fireproofing strategy. However, their main use is providing thermal protection by insulating structural steel and metal decking from the extremely high temperatures produced by fire. There are mainly two types of fireproofing applications; Intumescent Fire-Resistive Materials (IFRM), and Sprayed Fire-Resistive Materials (SFRM).

Intumescent Fire-Resistive Materials (IFRM):

Intumescent coatings are factory mixed liquid, paint-like materials that are applied to the steel by spray, brush, or roller. When exposed to heat, these materials intumesce (expand or swell) up to 50 times the thicknesses they were originally applied to create an insulating char around the substrate. IFRM’s are predominantly used to protect structural steel in areas that are exposed for an aesthetic finish or in mechanical, software, and clean room locations where dust is unacceptable.

Sprayed Fire-Resistive Materials (SFRM)

SFRM’s are made up of a factory mixed, dry formulation of Portland cement binders or gypsum based products and lightweight mineral or synthetic aggregates mixed with water to form a slurry for application. These materials are predominantly used to protect structural steel in areas that are concealed, are not subject to physical abuse or exposed to the elements. However, there are higher density SFRM’s that can be used in areas exposed to abrasion and the elements.
