Duplex, Painting & Blasting
In- House Duplex Painting Facilities
Geelong Galvanizing is the only galvanizer in Victoria that offers in-house facilities for painting steel components and applying Duplex coatings; a painted galvanized finish. This facility is ideal for designs that feature steel elements with an aesthetic edge. Geelong Galvanizing is PCCP certified for the application of paint coating systems. PCCP is an independent accreditation program administered by the CSIRO. It is based on applying paint coatings to a set of quality and performance standards that maximise paint protection and minimise the maintenance requirements of painted assets and infrastructure.
Heavy duty protective paints are often specified for installations that require lower levels of corrosion resistance. Alternatively, Duplex coatings offer the ultimate in aesthetic finishes; low maintenance, durable, corrosion resistant and available in any colour! We offer the complete corrosion protection coatings package.
Assured Paint Protection
Our Geelong site features a purpose built abrasive blasting and painting facility. The controlled environment in our blasting room incorporates grit recovery and dust collection equipment for high quality surface preparation. Our 5 tonne overhead gantry cranes optimise materials’ handling to ensure high quality paint finishes. And our equipment is designed to apply a range of basic primer base coats, waterborne inorganic zinc silicates, high build epoxy systems or Duplex coatings.
Duplex is the ultimate surface protection, offering a lower total lifecycle cost compared to painted steel surfaces. Duplex coatings are applied at our Geelong plant, under controlled conditions and are warranted for 15 years. The durability of a hot dip galvanized coating under the paint ensures steel will not corrode and taint the paint finish with rust stains. For a smooth steel finish Geelong Galvanizing employs an AS/NZS 4680 dipping technique to ensure the surface coating provides the right level of corrosion resistance for its installation environment.
