Industrial corrosion is an important maintenance issue for all large infrastructure sites.

Timely and cost effective corrosion maintenance can minimize the overall cost of asset ownership, and reduce or avoid asset failure risk due to loss of structural integrity and failure of function in operation.

Corrosion may be costing the Australian economy more than $30 billion each year, much of which is preventable.

SRS specialist cleaning is used prior to protective coating application

Australian Standard AS1627 is the compliance rating for surface preparation for the application of protective coatings.

The SRS low pressure wet abrasive system consistently produces surfaces cleaned in compliance with AS1627. This is of importance in ensuring the correct application of protective coatings.

Our unique blasting system is a safe, low pressure mixture of water and minerals that suppresses dust and contaminants.

This has the dual advantage of lowering blasting media breakdown and also prevents impregnation of foreign materials into the surface.

The presence of water between the abrasive media and the substrate being processed creates a lubricating cushion that protects the surface from excessive damage. The water becomes a vapor which absorbs the dust particulates, and is considered the most environmentally acceptable form of surface removal. Our blasting system is superior to sandblasting-only or soda-blasting due to better surface protection and longer lasting results.

SRS’s unique abrasive blasting is ideal for surface preparation – 100% clean.

The SRS system of surface removal is extremely clean – This means there are no soluble salts and chloride contamination from the blast media or dust clinging to the surface.


SRS abrasive blasting system removes surfaces so cleanly we can immediately begin applying protective coatings. Our methods lead to efficient project delivery.

SRS can apply your industrial protective coatings immediately after we complete the surface preparation.

Because our SRS blasting system removes surfaces so cleanly, we can immediately begin multiple coat protective coating applications without significant downtime. The SRS system has reduced job time and reduced costs.

Our work teams are fully trained and experienced in the application of industrial protective coatings under a wide variety of industrial conditions:

  • Airless spray application
  • Brush or roller manual application

Our experience with Application of Protective Coatings:

  • SAUNDERS Park Fuels Tanks  (Petrochemical Tanks) Kooragang Island
  • BORAL  Berrima Colliery (Delta SBD) Pit Access Bridge
  • John Holland Data Centre
  • Vale Mines Singleton – CHHP Washery

We apply industrial protective coatings including Dulux and International brands.

Dulux Trade and Research Relationship:

SRS maintains a special trade and research relationship with Dulux Protective Coatings technical team to optimize the coating specifications to achieve excellent performance and adhesion results. As part of this technical relationship we have had our Surface Preparation system tested for soluble salt and chloride removal by an independent technical consultant, and the results show the SRS surface preparation system removes soluble salts and chlorides
