Here at DF Coatings we operate a very large in-house blast booth which is 16 metres long and is equipped with dust extraction, lighting and grit recycling equipment. We can also accommodate open blazing in our yard, this enables us to undertake the biggest and smallest of jobs.
UHP (Ultra High Pressure) water blasting is often the preferred choice where dry blast cleaning is not practical. The advantages is that it’s a lot cleaner as you are using water as the cutting/cleaning media so it is very environmentally friendly, no waste disposal and its spark free.
An industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. It provides a barrier from the steelwork to its corrosive surroundings.
D F Coatings Ltd is a Southampton based company specialising in abrasive blast cleaning, Thermal Metal Spraying (TSA, TSZ), UHP water-blasting and application of industrial coatings including Intumescent protection.
Our CEO Mr. David Figgins has been involved with the industry since 1977 and has built up an experienced team of operatives who are fully trained in all aspects of coating application to SSPC standards and have recently undergone specialist training for qualification to BS EN ISO 14918 : 2008 for Thermal Metal Spraying which has put us on a Preferred Contractor basis for many of our customers.
We undertake contracts for all industries, including petrochemical, structural steelwork, marine and Heritage to name but a few having recently completed contracts for the MOD, SSE, Intratool and ExxonMobil .
Working from our waterfront premises in Hazel Road, Woolston, close to Southampton docks, we undertake a full range of industrial coating services, both in-house and on-site, covering the whole of the UK and global contracts in Russia, the Falkland Islands, Saudi Arabia etc. and we pride ourselves on the fact that our facility can handle oversize items which many of our competitors cannot.
Utilising our ongoing training programme we aim to supply the highest possible standards of service, in the minimum possible time, at the most competitive price.
At DF Coatings we undertake many different jobs which need specific coatings to maintain and preserve the life of the steel.
Together we have undertaken massive jobs both in house and on site for Briggs, SSE, eOn & Exxon Mobil to name but a few. We are his preferred contractor for applying these specialist materials.
