Wet spray painting is the traditional painting method where paint is applied using a pneumatic-powered airless paint sprayer, achieving a high-quality finish with speed and precision. These coatings are available in various types such as zincs, primers, enamels, epoxies, polyesters, fluoropolymers, urethanes, and more. To achieve a uniform and flawless coat of paint with wet spray, the surface must be cleaned properly, removing any rust, oils and dirt.
Whether protection from corrosion is most important, or if a beautiful appearance is the priority, the variety of coatings to choose from can be an overwhelming and difficult decision. Citrus Sandblast has experience using various industrial coating systems. In addition, we maintain relationships with various coating manufacturers that collaborate with us on more complex projects to determine which coating system is best suitable for protecting infrastructure in various environments. Commonly used coatings in the industrial market include Zinc, Epoxy, Polyurethane, Fluoropolymer, Acrylic, and Enamel.
Concrete provides a strong foundation that supports everything around it, which means it endures heavy traffic, abrasive chemicals, and excessive moisture. Such an instrumental material certainly requires a durable layer of protection. Concrete coating systems can protect concrete from wear and tear, and provide resistance to chemical attacks, extending its life expectancy. Applying concrete coatings begins with evaluating your environment and needs to protect your concrete with a custom solution.
Steel remains an invaluable material because of its strengths and versatility. However, steel is also vulnerable and prone to attacks from environmental conditions such as humidity, air contaminants, and salts. Steel coatings help protect steel and its structure from deterioration by creating an impenetrable barrier for corrosion. There’s a wide range of industrial coatings that can be used to protect your asset, heighten its benefits, minimize its vulnerabilities, and keep your structures thriving for years to come. Citrus Sandblast has the facility and experienced team to properly prep and prime structural steel before it gets erected, saving time and money.
The choice between painting vs. powder coating should be based on a variety of factors. Ultimately, both painting and powder coating can provide a smooth, durable, and beautiful finish on a variety of surfaces. Still not sure which direction you should take with your project?

Conventional wet spray painting is chosen over powder coating in multiple scenarios, such as when disassembly is not an option, or equipment and parts are too large for a powder coating oven. Another advantage is that most paint suppliers have the ability to quickly and easily mix colors to achieve a nearly exact color match with ease and efficiency. Wet paint is self-drying, which means it doesn’t require an oven to cure. For items that cannot withstand high temperatures or cannot be transported to a facility with an oven, conventional wet spray would be the chosen coating method.
