The foundation of any successful protective coating system is the surface preparation of the substrate. Industry standards created by SSPC and NACE specify the level of cleanliness and the required texture or profile required to maximize adhesion, performance and the lifespan of the coating system.
As an SSPC-QP3 certified shop, Inter-City Contracting employees are trained to have a complete understanding of these requirements. We will either follow the specified method or use our expertise to choose the correct media to maximize efficiency and level of cleanliness necessary to guarantee the success of your project.
