We are able to provide industrial coating systems to Network Rail and Highways Specifications and are approved to the National Highways Sector Scheme 19A for the corrosion protection of ferrous materials by industrial coating.
Thermal Metal Spraying
Using Metallistation’s Flamespray equipment our trained operatives are able to apply corrosion protection coatings of zinc, aluminium and zinc/aluminium alloys onto steelwork such as bridges, gantries, gates and fences at thicknesses to suit your specification, typically ranging from 100-250 Microns. This is commonly used as an alternative to galvanising.
