Why Spray Painting Is Perfect For The Australian Climate

Why Spray Painting Is Perfect For The Australian Climate
May 1, 2020 APT Spray Painting

When it comes to paint based protective coatings and the Aussie climate, there are a lot of factors to consider. In a country full of pretty extreme weather conditions from floods and high temperatures to droughts and bushfires, you can’t just use a regular coat of paint, cross your fingers and hope for the best. Luckily at APT Spray Painting, we have you covered with a range of highly specialised and durable spray paint services and options.

Doesn’t Fade In The Sun

A lot of commercial items like signage, machinery and construction parts are often exposed to the outdoors and the harsh Queensland UV rays. This exposure to the sun will often make the paint on these items fade, crack and even bubble up within a matter of weeks leaving the underlying substrate open to Australia’s harsh elements. However, we offer UV stable two-pack spray paint which offers a robust layer of protection against the sun and will leave your item looking shiny and new for years to come, as well as preserving the structure and extending its lifespan.

No Rust

Rust forms on metal objects when they are exposed to oxygen and moisture like rain, floods, coastal breezes and humidity. What’s more, many Australian industries and manufacturing hubs are located in coastal environments and are exposed to salt spray which is corrosive meaning that whatever paint system is used MUST protect against this.

Most paints don’t prevent rust from happening, they simply place a barrier between your object and the water, temporarily slowing the rate at which rust occurs. However, if you don’t use the correct paint with an appropriate level of protection, you’ll soon notice your objects becoming a rusty orange as they begin to corrode. However, we can first prep your object with an epoxy zinc rich primer as it’s an excellent defence against rust and stops the air and water from reaching the surface underneath it. This will ensure not only long-lasting durability but also a high-quality finish.

Temperature Resistant

Temperature resistant paint is ideal for an environment where temperatures tend to fluctuate from very hot to very cold. In these kinds of conditions, if the correct paint system is not applied, the paint will fail and have to be repainted which will result in more costs and a further period of time where your equipment is out of action. What’s more, when dealing with temperatures that are consistently hot or consistently cold it’s essential that you use the correct paint system eg. high-temperature paint, low-temperature paint, ceramic etc. to ensure that your equipment is protected.
