3 Coat Paint System for GMHBA’s Geelong head office


Having established our business way back in the 1950’s Complete Metal Protection has provided skill and expertise to a good number of significant projects. If you were to tour our state, you might be surprised to learn how many iconic scenes feature our work. But that never reduces our aim to be involved with new and exciting projects large or small. It was with great pride that we were able to supply our services to the new GMHBA head office in Geelong.


Our role was to provide protection to the outriggers that feature on the external faces of the building. To achieve the ultimate protection and design specifications we employed a 3 coat external paint system. 

The first coat utilised a zinc rich epoxy for long term, hard wearing protection against corrosive properties. The intermediate coat is a high build, high solid epoxy coating which resulted in a barrier to the natural environment. And finally, the topcoat is a polyurethane, which not only sets the work off with a high gloss finish, but also provides protection, including from UV, to the lower coats, preventing chalking and delivering a long term quality finish.

This new Geelong icon sits proudly in Moorabool street, the heart of the CBD. A CBD that has experienced significant development and modernisation over recent decades. At Complete Metal Protection we are delighted to have once again played our part.

No matter the project, large or small, iconic or not, if you’re after metal coatings get in touch, we’d love to speak with you.
