Corrosion Protection & Epoxy Coatings
McNaught Group are accredited and experienced in the application of most types of epoxy and urethane coatings.
Corrosion Protection for Structural Steel
McNaught Group have been specialising in Corrosion protection and protective coatings for structural steel and concrete for more than 30 years. In conjunction with our supplier’s technical experts we are able to specify, apply and certify a suitable system for all applications from structural steel to a slip rated concrete floor.
The amount of corrosion protection required for structural steel depends on the environment in which it is located this can range from mild to extreme.
Whether it be atmospheric corrosion protection to suit the intended corrosion environment, from C1 being insignificant to C5M which is a very heavy marine situation, our expertise covers them all.
McNaught Group have an environmentally friendly mobile vapour/dustless sand blaster so we can prepare any surface, remove graffiti without damage to the substrate, strip rust, strip paint from almost any item and leave a smooth undamaged finish.
Definition - What does Epoxy Coating mean?
An epoxy coating is the use of epoxy compounds as coatings or paints. It is generally two parts, which are mixed prior to application and consist of an epoxy resin that is cross-linked with a hardener.
Epoxy coatings are formulated based on the end product's performance requirements . When properly catalyzed and applied, epoxies produce a hard, chemical and solvent resistant finish. It is the specific selection and combination of the epoxy and hardener components that determine the final characteristics and suitability of the epoxy coating for a given environment.
Our products range from highly durable flooring system to corrosion protection for structural steel in extreme environments. Some of our main suppliers are Dulux, Carboline, Sika and Nutech.

Uses for Epoxy Coatings
Epoxy floor coatings protect and decorate the surface of the floor providing a strong, chemical and abrasive resistant covering. The products and colour range are vast, so the finish can be anything from a simple plain colour to a decorative flake finish or metallic look. Some common uses are garages, kitchens, workshops, factories, manufacturing, food preparation, and general concrete protection.
Epoxy coating are available in many forms. Some of the high build, and ultra high build range suitable for immersion in potable water tanks and inside sewage pumping stations can be applied to around 3000 microns in a single application.
With the proper treatment and base coats epoxies are very useful for corrosion protection on structural steel and other surfaces. They provide a tough durable weather proof coating that will also handle a marine environment.
