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

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


Industrial Painting Solutions

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


Our preparation services include UHP water jetting, abrasive blasting, and mechanical methods. This 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 rollers.


Highly Trained Workforce

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

We offer a range of services from the pre-engineering phase 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 personnel, and 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 resist corrosion. This significantly increases the life of the asset, and reduces the required time on planned maintenance projects.

Capabilities extend to the application 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. These allow us to deliver turnkey painting programmes for our clients, who work to combat corrosion and maintain their asset’s integrity.

Key Features

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

Surface Preparation & Coating Removal

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

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

Water Jetting

UHP Water Jetting/Blasting is extremely versatile. It’s both an effective and eco-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. This takes the substrate back to its original profile, and unlike other “traditional” surface preparation methods, ensures the surface is contaminant free.

Another advantage of UHP water jetting/blasting is its’ effect on the environment. UHP water jetting excludes the use of abrasives, minimising the waste stream. And by introducing containment and filtration, the washings can be effectively reused.

Furthermore, abrasive blasting creates several environmental, health and safety issues by producing dust. This leads to problems with the associated clean-up operations and airborne contamination from the operation. Pollution of this kind can affect the immediate work team and others who may not be wearing appropriate PPE.

Typically, UHP technology is used for the preparation of large surface areas. Tank internals and externals, bulkheads, decks, walkways and helidecks are a few ideal surfaces. And with no “spark” this enables UHP to be widely used in hazardous and extreme environments.

NRC has an extensive inventory of tools and accessories powered by UHP water. This includes Deckblasters, handheld Aquablasters and automated Mantaray which allow us to effectively remove coatings with vacuum attachments. Essentially, this ensures 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. It can be used for surface preparation, removing previously applied coatings, and corrosion deposits on many surfaces including steel.

Blasting abrasive particles is traditionally recognised as one of the fastest and most effective forms of surface preparation and coating removal. It establishes a sound working surface to promote the adhesion of paint or coatings.

NRC owns and operates a large inventory of equipment ranging from blast pots/kettles to portable abrasive systems. They provide controlled surface preparations 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, it effectively combines the power.

Mechanical Cleaning

Mechanical cleaning, involving the use of compressed air-operated power tools, (needle guns, sanders using abrasive discs) can be provided by NRC. All hand tools comply with the latest legislation. When used in compliance with “safe operating procedures,” they safeguard 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 or cosmetic repairs. It is also used where it is not possible to use 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
