Abrasive Blasting and Painting


Corrosion is the degradation of a material’s properties due to reactions with its environment. The returning of steel to its native oxide state (by rusting) costs our economy in Australia over $15B per annum. Salt greatly accelerates corrosion and because most of our infrastructure is situated near the coast, corrosion is an ongoing battle. Remote minesites in the desert are not exempt either as they generally rely on saline ground water for processing. Degradation of assets can also come in the form of chemical attack and wear from abrasion.

The protection of steel and concrete by abrasive blasting and coating is one of the most economical and effective methods of combating corrosion, chemical attack and wear. 

Duratec employs and trains industry professional tradespersons and NACE qualified inspectors to install quality protective coating systems. Duratec remain at the forefront of technology and are adept at the selection and application of high performance coating systems such as polyureas, elastomers and specialist wear resistant coatings. From dedicated abrasive blast and painting yards in Kalgoorlie, Karratha and Darwin, to being fully mobile and self-sufficient on remote sites, Duratec has a long history of delivering above clients expectations.
