With more than 20 years experience, NRC has developed extensive knowledge and practical experience on industrial painting and coating.

There are many techniques available for surface preparation and coating, in order to meet the required industry quality standards.


Industrial Painting Solutions

Industrial painting is carried out using our quality preparation techniques, equipment, and facilities. Our services are able to handle any industrial painting, protection, removal, or preservation needs.


Our preparation services include UHP water jetting, abrasive blasting, and mechanical methods, which includes dust-free and recyclable options.


Once prepared, we can apply a range of coatings and composites. We apply this with conventional, airless, or manual brush roller.


Highly Trained Workforce

At NRC, we have set out to develop a highly trained workforce with the capabilities to meet all our client’s surface preparation requirements. This includes mechanical preparation through to UHP water jetting.

We offer a range of services from the pre-engineering phase though to project close-out. Furthermore, we offer project management, surveying and planning, reporting, recommendations and technical support.


NRC-Owned Facilities and Equipment

In addition to its’ equipment for onsite projects, NRC owns and operates a Blast Paint Facility in Alness. The facility is complete with Wheel-abrator and overhead crane. This allows us the capability to handle large volumes of steelwork, should it be in a prefabricated or fabricated condition.

Associated Services

Blast Paint Facility

Located in Alness, NRC has a Blast Paint Facility and lay down area (2500 sq. meters with air extraction system). Additionally, the facility is complete with Wheel-abrator and overhead crane, which is capable of handling large volumes of steelwork.

Equipped with the latest technology surface preparation can be achieved by using one of the following techniques:

  • Automated Blast Unit (Wheelabrator): Contained blast unit that uses recyclable steel shot
  • Blast Shed: Used for all forms of abrasive blasting; i.e. Dry Grit Blasting, Wet (Slurry) Blasting and Quill abrasive systems
  • UHP Water Jetting: Working pressures up to 43,500psi.
  • Mechanical Cleaning

Key Features

  • Volume of throughput
  • Offsite Solution
  • Controlled environment
  • Multiple Solutions

Industrial Coating Applications, Corrosion Protection & Preservation

NRC has the equipment, experienced operatives, and the techniques to apply conventional or specialist coatings. We work in accordance with manufacturers and client specifications.

Having prepared the surface using one of our applications, NRC can apply the required coating to provide an effective barrier to combat corrosion. This significantly increases the life of the asset, and reduces the required time on planned maintenance projects.

Capabilities extend to the application of a range of high tech coatings and composites such as:

  • – Industrial Epoxies, Alkyds and Urethanes
  • – Non-Slip Helideck and Deck Coatings, Screeds and Tiles
  • – Tank and Vessel Linings including Glassflakes
  • – Anti fouling Coatings

Turnkey Painting Programmes

We have an extensive range of painting equipment and accessories which allows us to deliver turnkey painting programmes for our clients as they combat corrosion and maintain their assets integrity.

Key Features

  • Increased asset life
  • Reduced time on Planned Maintenance
  • Delivery of Turnkey Painting Programme

Surface Preparation & Coating Removal

NRC has an extensive range of the latest technology surface preparation equipment, encompassing UHP water jetting (hydro-blasting), abrasive (wet and dry) blasting and mechanical (power tools) methods.

Our equipment resource affords us the capability to undertake all sizes of projects and provide the most effective tailored solution to meet the project requirements.

Water Jetting

UHP Water Jetting/Blasting is extremely versatile and both an effective and environmentally friendly way of preparing a surface for coatings application.

Operating at up to 40,000 psi (2,750 bar), the use of UHP water jetting technology enables us to remove any coating and soluble salts, taking the substrate back to its original profile, and unlike other “traditional” surface preparation methods, ensuring the surface is completely contaminant free.

Another advantage that UHP water jetting / blasting holds over abrasive blasting is the effect on the environment. UHP water jetting excludes the use of abrasives, minimising the resultant waste stream and by introducing containment and filtration the resultant washings can be effectively reused.

Furthermore abrasive blasting creates several environmental and health and safety issues by creating dust. Consequently issues are created with the associated clean-up operations and air borne contamination arising from the operation which could affect others out with the immediate work team who may not be wearing appropriate PPE.

Typically UHP technology is used for the surface preparation of large surface areas such as tank internals and externals, bulkheads, decks, walkways and helidecks, and with no “spark” this enables UHP to be widely used in hazardous and extreme environments.

NRC own an extensive inventory of specialist tools and accessories powered by UHP water such has Deckblasters, hand held Aquablasters and the automated Mantaray which allows us to effectively and efficiently remove coatings with vacuum attachment ensuring containment and minimal mess. UHP Water blasting provides the cost effective solution for surface preparation in every industry sector.

Abrasive Blasting

Abrasive (Grit Blasting) involves the use of compressed air and an abrasive medium and can be used for surface preparation, to remove previously applied coatings, corrosion deposits, etc, on all types of surfaces including steel.

Blasting abrasive particles at a surface is traditionally recognised as one of the fastest and most effective form of surface preparation and coating removal, establishing a good sound-working surface to promote the adhesion of a specific type of paint or coating.

NRC own and operate a large inventory of equipment ranging from blast pots / kettles to specialist portable abrasive systems providing controlled surface preparation to internationally recognised standards. The most commonly referred to standards are Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC), National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), and Swedish Standards (SA). We also offer slurry blasting using an abrasive media in tandem with UHP water jetting utilising specialist tooling, effectively combining the power.

Mechanical Cleaning

Mechanical cleaning involving the use of compressed air operated power tools such as needle guns and sanders using abrasive discs can also be provided by NRC. All hand tools comply with the latest legislation and when used in compliance with “safe operating procedures” safeguards the operative.

  • – Cost effective in preparing small areas for inspection.
  • – Enhanced control for sensitive areas.
  • – Acceptable alternative where it is not possible or practical to use abrasive blasting or UHP

Typically mechanical surface preparation is used to prepare small areas for inspection and or cosmetic repairs or where it is not possible to use either UHP water jetting or abrasive blasting.

Key Features

  • Environmentally Sensitive
  • Containment, Recycle and Reuse of Washings
  • Reduced Waste Stream
  • Removes all contaminants including soluble salts
  • Use in hazardous and extreme environments
  • Safe, Effective and Efficient
