Industrial Coatings application has been increasing in popularity over recent years as more and more of our clients realize that a more attention to detail in the begining stages of your project will substantially increase your investment's lifespan and effective longevity.
We have (3) shop locations serving the Texas Gulf Coast, and surrounding cities, to ensure your project is never too far away.
Where Chaparral stands apart from the competition is simple really. Do a better job, each time you get the oppurtunity to do it. It only seems difficult if you do not care to grow your quality standards.

Specifically, the most common use of industrial coatings is to prevent steel from corroding. A secondary common use is to make these materials more resistant to fire or other problems. Polymers are frequently used as an industrial coating. Some common polymers used as a coating include moisture cure urethane, epoxy, zinc rich epoxy, fluoropolymer, and polyurethane. Of course there are as many application processes as there are materials used as coatings, but the most common processes are airless and conventional — both performed by Chaparral.

Functional coatings may be applied to change the surface properties of the substrate, such as adhesion, wettability, corrosion resistance, or wear resistance. In other cases, e.g. semiconductor device fabrication (where the substrate is a wafer), the coating adds a completely new property, such as a magnetic response or electrical conductivity, and forms an essential part of the finished product.
We are experienced in the following coatings application methods:
- Airless Spray (Shop, and In-field application)
- Conventional Spray (Shop, and In-field application)
- Brush & Roll Touch up (Shop, and In-field application)
