Shipping Container Paint Helps Protect

Wednesday, 26th August 2009
When built from new in factory steel shipping containers are generally shot blasted with a fine material which cleans any oil or grease from the bare metal and keys the surface in preparation for painting. The bare steel is then usually primed with a zinc rich primer and once dried a final top coat of marine paint is applied. This paint again usually contains zinc phosphate and is based on acrylic resin and non-chlorinated plasticizer. When painting our containers we use a similar topcoat which has been specially designed by a marine container paint manufacturer to be suitable for steel containers, to have anti corrosive properties and to be a one coat system meaning a primer is not required. Our paint is usually applied using an airless spray system meaning that maximum coverage is achieved ,in addition to a fairly constant thickness, resulting in a finish that both looks good and lasts. Surface preparation is very important when considering painting your shipping container. If any oil or grease or flaking rust and debris is not removed correctly in the first place then any subsequent paint application will not adhere properly and the finish will not only look poor but will not last.
