Elastomeric Coatings

Category : Interior Design

Industrial painting that goes beyond a fantastic appearance
When it comes to painting, your industrial facility has to look great—but you need more than just aesthetic appeal. It’s essential to protect your investment from the damaging environmental conditions your buildings and equipment are subjected to on a daily basis.
The professionals at Raider Painting have more than 29 years of experience on a wide variety of industrial and commercial projects. We understand that exceptional painting goes beyond a pretty picture—it needs to provide long-lasting protection that will serve your facility for years to come.
What are elastomeric coatings, and how can they help you?
Elastomerics are among the most frequently used types of coatings for industrial applications. The unique properties of these highly flexible coatings make them a superior choice for waterproofing, with 100 percent elongation that allows them to bridge cracks in substrates and form a tight seal.
In addition, elastomeric coatings have the ability to move with surfaces that expand and contract as they’re subjected to the extreme temperatures prevalent in industrial environments. This keeps the coating from cracking and allows it to retain its superior protection qualities.
While elastomerics are ideal for rough surfaces such as masonry, stucco, brick, and concrete, they also work well for other types of industrial surfaces, particularly where seepage can be a destructive problem. Our experts will consult with you to determine whether elastomeric coatings are the right choice for your facility.

Steel Structural Coatings

Category : Interior Design

Professional applications to preserve your investment
While one of the primary goals of commercial and industrial painting is to provide an aesthetically pleasing appearance for your facility, the experts at Raider Painting know that coatings offer more than just a pretty picture. Many types of painting can and should protect your investment from environmental damage.
With more than 29 years of product knowledge and hands-on experience, our professional team delivers great looks and more for your facility. Steel structural coatings work to prevent damage to your integral components, while maintaining an exceptional appearance for years to come.
What can steel structural coatings do for you?
The steel components of your facility are highly susceptible to damage from harsh environmental elements, such as water and salt water, UV rays, and extreme hot or cold temperatures. Over time, this exposure leads to rust and corrosion, which can compromise the integrity of your structure.
Steel structural coatings enhance the cosmetic appearance of these components, while protecting them from their environmental surroundings. However, the effectiveness of these coatings is dependent on proper surface preparation and applying the coating at the correct thickness. It’s essential to have a professional commercial painting contractor apply structural coatings to ensure optimal adhesion and maximum benefit.
Surface prep for steel coating includes the application of acid to neutralize raw steel surfaces, and zinc as a drying product to inhibit corrosion and rust. If there is corrosion already present, a steel slag blast is used to remove it prior to applying the new coating.

Machinery & Equipment Painting

Category : Painting

Preserve and protect your hardest-working investments.
The machinery and equipment in your commercial facility represents a vital aspect of your business. When your presses, flare stacks, ovens, or heating and cooling systems start to look dull and shabby, chances are their performance will be affected. Professional coatings can prolong the longevity of your essential machinery.
At Raider Painting, we have extensive experience in a wide variety of commercial and industrial settings, from restaurants to rail yards and beyond. We’ll implement a solution that improves both the function and aesthetics of your equipment—and we’ll schedule the work around your needs, to avoid interruption of your business flow.
How can machinery and equipment painting help you?
Professional coatings for machinery offer a number of benefits. In addition to providing a fresh, pleasing look, coating materials such as epoxy protect structural components, reducing wear and tear and extending the working life of your equipment.
For harsh environments, high temperature coatings can be used to withstand temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Chemical resistant coatings provide further protection. To safeguard outdoor equipment, UV-resistant top coats can be used to retain color and prevent erosion of the substrate coating.
Labeling is another important function of machinery and equipment painting, as vital components can be color-coded for safety and operational purposes.
The experts at Raider Painting will work with you to determine your needs and recommend the best course of action for coating your machinery. We understand that as a business, you need to remain operational, so we’ll schedule your project around your working hours and shutdown times, including nights, weekends, and holiday work.

Fire-Protective & Intumescent Coatings

Category : home improvement

Safeguard your investment from disaster
Of course, you’ve already invested in a fire protection system that includes alarms, extinguishers, and fire safety protocols for your commercial facility—but is there more you can do? Fire-protective coatings slow the spread of fire, allowing time for everyone to get out safely in the event of disaster while significantly reducing damage to your structure.
The professionals at Raider Painting have more than 29 years of experience working with fire-protective and intumescent coatings on a wide variety of commercial and industrial projects. We can provide you with an additional layer of protection that helps to preserve your structure and, most importantly, helps to save lives.
What are intumescent coatings?
Intumescent, or fire-protective, coatings possess unique abilities in combatting fire. When exposed to heat, these coatings increase in volume and decrease in density. This results in a charred surface that is a poor conductor of heat and keeps the fire from spreading further.
Additionally, many intumescent coatings contain hydrates, sodium silicates, and graphite elements that release water vapor in response to heat, which produces a cooling effect that strengthens fire-retardant char.
Typical structures that require intumescent coatings include:
Second floor or higher in buildings
Underground facilities
Parking garages
As with all commercial coatings, proper application is the key to the effectiveness of fire-protective coatings. Specific compatible, manufacturer-designated primers must be used, and multiple coats must be applied to achieve the proper fire rating. At Raider Painting, our extensive product knowledge and hands-on experience assures that your intumescent coating will work as intended.
See our work in action.
At G Star Raw Retail in Beverly Hills, CA, we applied intumescent coating to the ceiling of this high-end retail store on Rodeo Drive in order to meet with city code compliance.
As this is an upscale store, appearances are important. Professionally applied fire-protective coatings are visually similar to ordinary paint at ambient temperatures, so we were able to achieve the look the client desired, while increasing safety and peace of mind.

Graffiti Removal & Anti-Graffiti Coatings

Category : home improvement

Combat vandalism with the commercial painting experts
Just one instance of graffiti can spoil the appearance and image of your commercial facility. Unfortunately, once graffiti appears on your property, vandals are typically encouraged to further deface the surface. It’s essential to remove these eyesores quickly and professionally, and to do everything possible to prevent recurrence of the problem.
At Raider Painting, we have the product knowledge and hands-on experience you need to remove and prevent graffiti. We’ll restore your surfaces to excellent aesthetic conditions and help protect them from future vandalism.
How can painting protect your building from graffiti?
Anti-graffiti coatings can prevent the aerosol spray paint used for graffiti from sticking to surfaces. There are two different types of anti-graffiti coatings available: sacrificial coatings and permanent coatings. Both types can be invisible to the naked eye, which makes them ideal for preservation purposes.
Sacrificial coatings are inexpensive, clear-coat materials that are applied over the substrate, and “sacrificed” if graffiti is sprayed onto them. These coatings can be removed with a high-pressure washer, which also removes the graffiti, and then re-applied to protect the surface.
Permanent coatings form a protective surface over the substrate, so spray paint is unable to bond to the paint. If a permanent coating is vandalized, the graffiti can be removed by scrubbing with a simple solvent without damaging the coating or the underlying surface.
The experts at Raider Painting will work with you to implement an anti-graffiti solution that is ideal for you and your business. We also provide graffiti removal and repainting services for any type of commercial or industrial facility.
See our work in action.
We provided an anti-graffiti solution for several locations of A-1 Storage Facilities across the western United States. Because self-storage facilities are often isolated and unattended, they can be prime targets for vandals. We worked with the client to provide an enhanced, long-term vandalism defense in addition to the security system installation in place at the facilities.
Professional services for all your commercial painting requirements.
Our commitment to top-quality work and exceptional customer service is the driving force behind everything we do at Raider Painting. We don’t simply accept jobs—we build relationships with our clients, and work to provide superior solutions.

Elastomeric Deck Coatings

Category : home improvement

Outstanding weatherproofing from the industrial painting experts
Industrial decks are under constant pressure from heavy traffic and exposure to the elements. To prevent your structure from degrading, you need a protective deck coating that is properly applied for maximum effectiveness.
Our professional team at Raider Painting has worked extensively with elastomeric coatings in a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications and settings. We have the knowledge and hands-on experience required to complete your project on time, following the special considerations of industrial environments and achieving exceptional results.
What are elastomeric deck coatings?
Elastomerics are among the most popular types of coatings used in commercial and industrial settings. As the name implies, this coating has elastic qualities that allow it to expand and contract along with the substrate under extreme temperatures, while still retaining its shape.
Additionally, elastomeric coatings can bridge small, pre-existing cracks in substrate and prevent them from expanding, while providing an excellent barrier against the moisture that can damage the structural integrity of your deck, flooring, roof, and walls.
Elastomerics are ideal for use on concrete, stucco, and masonry decks, where the absence of a smooth surface often promotes chipping and cracking. In addition, many other types of deck surfaces can benefit from elastomeric coatings. Consult with us, and we’ll help you determine whether elastomerics will meet the needs of your facility.
