You might be wondering why we need to change how industrial coatings are applied in the first place. It turns out the way we apply industrial coatings is really important. Coating certain surfaces, especially when they’re outdoors and subject to variable conditions, can be difficult, time-consuming and inefficient – as well as unsafe for the painters who often have to work at height.
Qlayers has a solution. The unique automated application technology they developed can coat large surfaces in any weather conditions, while maintaining consistency and quality.
“We’re mainly focused on large surfaces that need to be maintained outside, starting with pipes and storage tanks,” Ruben says. “Coatings are currently applied by hand using rollers and paint brushes. Spraying would be faster, but up until now it hasn’t been possible. Overspray is such a big issue, both wasteful and bad for the environment. That’s where we can help.”
