Coatings & Linings

SPEC Corrosion Protection (Pty) Ltd offers coating and lining applications in a controlled environment using conventional, airless and twin component spraying techniques:

Services include:

Coating and lining systems:

1.  Ceramic Polymers

  • The Ceramic Polymer GmbH produces high-performance coatings with integrated micro ceramic particles for different fields of application. The properties of the ceramic – chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and weathering stability – justify the high quality of our coating systems. By extra integration of microscopic special particles, we generate coating products which provide the highest protection properties.

  • We feature innovative coating solutions – consistent effort towards new and further developments of our products is a major part of our company philosophy. Certificates and results of extensive test series of independent research institutes prove the superiority and quality of the Ceramic Polymer’s coating systems.

2.  ARC specialized products

  • Industry faces adverse environmental conditions that attack components and structures which can result in compromised plant reliability, safety, and lost profits. Chesterton’s ARC efficiency coatings provide superior performance against erosion, corrosion, abrasion, and chemical attack to both metal and concrete surfaces. You can rely on Chesterton’s low VOC, 100% solids ARC protective linings to protect these surfaces in your industrial environment.

ARC Metal EPC Systems repair, rebuild, and protect all types of industrial process equipment and structures from abrasive, corrosive, and chemically aggressive environments.

  • Provide long-term protection
  • Extend equipment life

3.  We also do Epoxy, Polyurethane and Glass Flake product                        coatings.

4.  Rubberizing

  • The machine is not only meant for the rubberizing of bakkie linings, but can also be used on various other surfaces such as steel, wood, aluminum, fiberglass, concrete etc. Therefore, almost anything that you need waterproofed, can be done with a polyurethane spray on lining.

  • All this is done in house and on site.

5.  Pipe Wrapping

  • SPEC Corrosion Protection offers a complete pipe wrapping service.

Services includes:

  • Application Areas:
       o  Pipelines in tunnel systems 
       o  Pipes in open air areas (UV) 
       o  Pipe specials


  • Contracts undertaken to date include:

      o  Removal of old epoxy tar on pipeline and applying Denso wrapping                        system including a final coating system

      o  800NB pipeline Denso wrapped after applying an epoxy coating                             system. These pipes were welded together, welded area repaired                          and then buried in the ground (Cathodic Protected).

       o  Any type of pipe specials for various purposes (buried, in valve                               chambers or in open air) and various clients

6.  Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE)
