About

SEO Friendly Title: Abrasive Blasting & Industrial Painting Geelong

History

The business started in the early 1950’s as Fleming’s Painting. In 1961 sandblasting equipment was purchased and the business was based in Moolap, Geelong. It became known as Fleming’s Sandblasting. In 1997 the present premises was built in Buckley Grove, Moolap. In 2012, to convey our Company’s fundamental purpose we changed our trading name to Complete Metal Protection and moved into providing both blasting and coating services, from garnet blasting to epoxy coatings and the other services our clients depend upon today.

Now

Our manufacturing site in Moolap, Geelong occupies over 2 acres.

With two abrasive blasting and two large paint sheds, we can handle large volumes effectively.
Two five tonne gantry cranes and a 12 tonne forklift mean we can handle very large steel fabrications. In addition we have a 5 tonne yard crane and two 2.5 tonne forklifts. We are well equipped to unload and load trucks efficiently and move work between blast and paint sheds.

Our larger blast and paint sheds can comfortably accommodate components up to 30m long. Even though we are geared up for large projects, we are small enough and flexible enough to manage specialized components with high tech requirements in small or large quantities.

We take quality seriously. All work is completed as per specification and our quality systems ensure that:

Coating Services: Primers

SEO Friendly Title: Zinc Rich & Inorganic Zinc Rich primers, Geelong

When it comes to protecting steel fabrications in harsh environments, a high-quality zinc rich primer applied in Geelong by our expert team becomes a necessity. So how does it work? Zinc rich primers play an important role in acting as a barrier between the environment, the top-level coating and the substrate. Zinc rich primers will actually slowly corrode underneath the surface coating to ensure the steel underneath remains intact.

The zinc particles in our zinc rich primer make them an ideal choice for many businesses working in the petrochemical and mining industries, due to their high effectiveness in protecting steel and metal fabrications from water, salt and other potential contaminants.

Similarly, inorganic Zinc Rich Coatings also provide excellent corrosion protection to a range of metal fabrications. The main difference between organic and inorganic zinc primers is the binders they use, organic zinc rich primers can be made with a range of binders with the main one being epoxy, whereas inorganic zinc rich primers primarily use a silicate binder.  Complete Metal Protection provide our clients with both options. Inorganic zinc rich primers are generally difficult to apply and should only be done by specialists.

Complete Metal Protection is an approved applicator of some of the highest quality coatings and primers on the market, including Dulux Protective Coatings. To find out more about zinc primers contact our team. We also provide a variety of coating services, including polyurethane coating services at our Geelong headquarters.


Coating Services: Intumescent Coatings

SEO Friendly Title: Intumescent Coatings Melbourne

Intumescent coatings are one of Complete Metal Protection’s most important Melbourne services, particularly when you consider their heroic ability to fight fire and save lives. Installed in buildings, offices, residential properties, shopping centers and hospitals, this service coats sections of the building with layers of intumescent, a specially formulated substance that swells and forms an insulating layer when faced with a rise in heat exposure.

Without an intumescent coating, a steel building will lose its load-bearing capacity in the event of a fire and if heat levels reach over 550°C, the stability of the buildings structure risks great destruction.

Using the state-of-the-art Nullifire and Sherwin Williams products, intumescent coatings effectively extinguish and prevent the spread of what is called ‘Cellulosic fires’, which are caused by cellulosic materials including paper, timber, plastics and even furniture.

Our Melbourne intumescent coatings service has been extensively tested in accordance with national standards and is an essential form of insurance for the life of your building, and those inside it, offering up to 120 crucial minutes of fire protection.

With vast experience in the industry and a team of reliable professionals, Complete Metal Protection can help protect the safety of any Melbourne building, big or small. Contact us today on 03 5248 2021 to find out more about our intumescent coating service.

Blasting Services: Garnet

SEO Friendly Title: Geelong garnet blasting, servicing businesses Victoria wide

Garnet is made up of Almandite and Andradite mineral deposits and is a slightly harsher material than glass bead blasting, for businesses in Geelong and beyond wanting a durable media that can be used with great accuracy.

Garnet is available in a variety of sizes, with the ability to use rough or more rounded edges depending on the desired result. Commonly used for preparing a range of surfaces for coating or industrial painting.

Garnet blasting an environmentally sustainable choice for businesses Victoria-wide

Due to its hardness – scoring between 7 and 8 on the Mohs scale – garnet is able to be recycled for repeated use, this combined with the fact that garnet abrasive blasting creates very little dust in comparison to other abrasive materials and is non-toxic, making it a suitable choice for companies looking for an environmentally friendly media.

These features also make garnet a cost effective material when it comes to abrasive blasting.

Garnet an ideal abrasive for both wet and dry blasting

Another key advantage of garnet blasting for Geelong businesses is its versatility, with the ability for it to be used around water and in dry docks, tanks and other areas where other materials simply aren’t suitable.

Complete Metal Protection are garnet blasting experts, with the experience and skills to deliver high-quality, reliable results for businesses in the shipbuilding industry, petrochemical industry and many other industrial applications.

Blasting Services: Glass Bead

SEO Friendly Title: Glass Bead Blasting, Geelong

Glass bead blasting is a less abrasive method in comparison to other abrasive blasting materials commonly used by our Geelong team, including our sandblasting abrasive services. Glass beads offer a highly effective solution for removing materials such as paint or smoothing out surfaces that would otherwise be damaged by harsher abrasive blasting methods.

When you consider the multiple benefits that glass bead blasting offers businesses in terms of effectiveness, sustainability and cost, it’s no wonder this media is becoming increasingly popular when it comes to removing paint, rust and other coatings from a large range of industrial surfaces.

Glass bead blasting offering clients a cost effective and sustainable solution Victoria-wide

Glass bead blasting, similar to garnet blasting gives our Geelong and Victoria-wide clients an environmentally friendly and cheaper option for their abrasive blasting needs. The glass beads used in the blasting process are made up of recycled bottles and other glass materials, meaning the process is sustainable, non-toxic and less costly than other abrasive blasting materials.

Complete Metal Protection have extensive experience using glass bead blasting to effectively remove rust, coatings and paint from softer metal surfaces, as well as using blasting to smooth the surface of a range of metal fabrications. Our blasting shed allows us to operate on large-scale fabrications up to 30 metres in length.

We typically employ the use of glass bead blasting when working on projects in the automotive industry and other more delicate projects. When it comes to glass bead blasting services you simply cannot go past Complete Metal Protection, based in Geelong, servicing the whole of Victoria our clients range from multinational corporations in the petrochemical industry to small automotive businesses.

Blasting Services: Sandblasting Abrasive

SEO Friendly Title: Abrasive sandblasting services, Geelong-based servicing Victoria-wide

Sandblasting is the most commonly used and referred to abrasive blasting technique, with its function mainly to remove coatings, paint, rust or other types of surface contaminants, along with it being used to shape metallic surfaces, either to make surfaces smoother or rougher.

Unlike our Geelong-based glass bead blasting services, our team use abrasive sandblasting for projects that require a deeper depth profile in the preparation for coating or painting, such as steel beams or to help combat rust and corrosion that occurs on metallic surfaces, structures and machinery.

Our team are specially trained to carry of highly effective and safe abrasive sandblasting in a variety of industrial applications. Silica sand (the common sand particles used in the process of sandblasting) can be toxic to humans if the proper safety precautions are not carried out properly, which is why it’s critical that you have the experienced and highly trained team at Complete Metal Protection carry out your abrasive sandblasting needs.

Benefits of using intumescent fire protection coatings for your Melbourne building

When a fire starts in a building, every minute counts – and that’s why intumescent fire protection coatings in Melbourne are so important.

Put simply, these high-tech coatings help save lives and valuable assets. They give firefighters time to extinguish a blaze before the stability of the building’s steel structure fails. Up to 120 minutes of extra time, delivered by the power of intumescent technology, can make a world of difference.

At Complete Metal Protection, our intumescent coatings service is a core part of our business. We apply superior protective coatings including Nullifire SC902 and Firetex FX6002 to a wide range of steel structures, big and small.

Our team, highly trained and accredited in intumescent application, play an active role in helping buildings withstand the dangers of cellulosic fires. These fires have a fuel source that’s cellulosic in nature, such as paper, timber or plastic.

But when a fire occurs, these ‘next-generation’ coatings react, creating a insulating layer of inorganic char to protect the steelwork from failing when fire triggers a dramatic heat rise. This provides a valuable window of opportunity for firefighters to suppress the blaze before the steel structure is compromised. And that can mean the difference between building recovery and collapse.

Complete Metal Protection prides itself on excellence. We believe in quality – when it comes to staff, the work we do and the products we use. And we are passionate about delivering the best result possible for every client, every job we tackle.

So it’s no surprise that when it comes to intumescent fire protection coatings Melbourne clients want the best. That’s why we use state-of-the-art products from leading manufacturers in this specialist field.

Proven performers in fire protection

Nullifire SC902, a fast-track hybrid intumescent on the cuting edge of passive fire protection, has many attributes including:

Firetex FX6002, a second-generation, ultra-fast, durable Methacrylate intumescent from the renowned Sherwin-Williams stable, boasts quality features including:

When you use our intumescent fire protection coatings in Melbourne, you can rest assured you’re in the hands of experienced professionals. Our service has been rigorously tested in line with national standards.

Steel signage restoration – abrasive blasting and protective coatings

Restoration Jetstar sign at Avalon airport Geelong

At Complete Metal Protection we recently had the privilege of working with Hanlon Industries on the restoration of the Jetstar sign at Avalon Airport. This particular job is an excellent example of the fact that not all protective coating systems are the same. We would expect this project to last for 10 to 15 years before it needs to be refreshed. Upon our initial inspection, we discovered heavy pitted rusting in many of the girders. Pitted rusting, even after a sustained period, is not typical for a job that has been completed using the correct coating system.

The environment and elements at Avalon Airport can be extreme. The elements go from the extreme temperatures of the mid-forties in summer to low single-digit figures in winter. The temperature extremes do not take into account the high-velocity winds and the salt air coming in from Corio bay. This means that any steel exposed to the elements needs to have an exceptionally high-quality coating system.

For this particular project, Hanlon Industries were very specific in providing a quality solution for their client and nominated the following three coat system.

The results speak for themself and will continue to do so for a good ten to fifteen years. To restore the signage is a fraction of the cost of replacing yet is now as good as new and better protected to face the elements.  It’s not about merely providing a coating service. First, you have to understand the purpose of the steel, and what it is going to be used for, then you need to understand the elements that the steel will be subjected to. Once you have understood the factors impacting the project at hand, can you then develop the most appropriate steel coating system?

The Jetstar Avalon signage required long-lasting outdoor steel signage that is to be subjected to extreme temperatures and salt air corrosion as well. At Complete Metal Protection, we are incredibly proud of our team and the job completed.

 


Protective coatings, internal and external structural steel Melbourne

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School – sport centre

Complete Metal Protection (CMP) recently worked on this exciting new development for the Essendon and Penleigh Grammar school (PEGS) – sports centre. The builder for this project was McCorkells and the client was Vic Structural. CMP worked closely with Sherwin-Williams Protective Marine Coatings for the specific coatings for this project.

Our brief was to coat the structural steel in accordance with the architectural requirements.

Protective coatings for external and internal structural steel

The following elements were used as part of the process in providing the required steel treated and coated to exacting specifications for this project

At CMP 3 core elements are at the core of each project we undertake.

  1. Preparation
  2. Quality coating materials
  3. Quality craftsmanship and skilled workforce

Preparation. For PEGS we checked for mill scale, rust and oil, grease fat perspiration. And where applicable attention was paid to welds and the adjacent areas. All mild steels had both a pretreatment and surface preparation prior to applying the applicable coatings.

Quality coating materials. This goes without saying. For this specific job we worked with Sherwin-Williams Protective Marine Coatings

Quality craftsmanship and the skill of our workforce. At CMP we have firmly believe in building a reputation rather than relying on one.

 

 


Industrial inorganic zinc coated steel

At Complete Metal Protection (CMP) our large facilities mean we have the capacity for those large industrial inorganic zinc coated steel jobs.

When looking to treat steel with corrosion resistance (rust resistant) properties for those larger commercial jobs you can opt for hot dipped galvanized steel or inorganic zinc painted steel. Both treatments come in at a comparable price and both rely on metallic zinc for their corrosion resistance properties. However it’s in the application of the coating where the differences take place. Without going into the technicalities,a US coatings blog states under many difficult corrosion conditions, the inorganic zinc coating will have a much longer life than the galvanizing under the same conditions. Another issue that may present for hot dipped galvanized steel is warping of the steel during the hot dipping process.

Without a doubt inorganic zinc primers would appear to win the day as the hot dipped galvanizing process just does not offer the same abrasive and chemical protection.

The image attached is from a job CMP did for GFC Industries, the builder was Multiplex at 80 Collins Street.

Industrail inorganic zinc primers are just some of the jobs we can do for you at CMP, we also work with enamels and  epoxy coatings amongst others. Call us now for you next large industrial coating job.


Grit blasting and protective coatings for a marine environment

Abrasive blasting and epoxy coating for salt air protection, Portarlington, Port Phillip Bay

The Portarlington Cricket club came to Complete Metal Protection (CMP) to ask if we could help them out by grit blasting and painting with protective coatings their newly acquired sight screens.

Whilst small jobs like this is not something we focus on it was definitely something we could help with. This environment (marine, salt air, coastal) can be incredibly damaging to metals and materials prone to corrosion. They needed a solution that is durable and will survive the elements.

After discussion about the location of their oval, exposure to the marine and salt air environment and what they were wanting regarding service life for their metal equipment exposed to this harsh Australian environment we decide to go with a 3 coat system after the initial grit blasting.

The 3 coat system is ideal for protection against the specific elements in a coastal town like Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.

3 coating system (2 coat epoxy, 1 polyurethane) for marine and salt air environments

1.       Interzinc 52 Zinc rich epoxy providing anodic protection

2.       intermediate coat of Interplus 1180 high build epoxy providing barrier protection of prime coat

3.       Last of all is Interthane 870 (satin) Polyurethane providing excellent UV protection.

This 3 coat paint system will provide excellent durability to the harsh marine environment. This coating will provide a minimum of ten years and up to 15 years until the first service is required.

Whilst the cricket screens are a small job in the scheme of things this treatment is typical of architectural and larger engineering projects that are exposed to a salt air and coastal environment. As you can see from the images below we are really geared up for much larger industrial jobs but we must say it was our pleasure to work with the Portarlington Cricket Club.

 

 

 

 

 


Jubilee One Aquatic Centre

Protective coatings for architectural steel framing

Complete Metal Protection recently worked on the Club Jubilee One Aquatic Centre and Gymnasium in Wyndham Vale. Abrasive sandblasting and coating is being used as per the appropriate paint specification. The construction of the new aquatic centre features a 25m lap pool, leisure/toddlers pool, waterslides and other areas include basement plant room, change rooms, gym and lobby areas. High build general purpose epoxy zinc phosphate primer, an epoxy coating and a recoatable satin polyurethane finish, all completed in our Geelong facility.

Aquatic centre construction requires specific paint specifications for the fabricated steel to resist the corrosive elements and environment. This was a great job to work with as the paint specifications were as much about the protection as they are for the architectural steel aesthetics. We worked with Stilcon Holdings and McCorkell Constructions on this project.

We used a 3 coat system based Dulux products

  1. Prime Coat – Duremax GPE ZP
  2. Intermediate Coat – Duremax GPE
  3. Top Coat – Luxathane SPX

  1. Preparation
  2. Quality coating materials
  3. Quality craftsmanship and skilled workforce

Preparation. For PEGS we checked for mill scale, rust and oil, grease fat perspiration. And where applicable attention was paid to welds and the adjacent areas. All mild steels had both a pretreatment and surface preparation prior to applying the applicable coatings.

Quality coating materials. This goes without saying. For this specific job we worked with Sherwin-Williams Protective Marine Coatings

Quality craftsmanship and the skill of our workforce. At CMP we have firmly believe in building a reputation rather than relying on one.
