Sometimes, it’s best just to take an asset back to square one. Our chemical stripping services do just that. We strip away years and years and layers and layers of paint to give your ship, building or equipment its original look. Often done as a precursor to applying a brand new coating system, chemical stripping is a step toward prolonging the life of your asset.
Crown Coatings & Contracting Company has the expertise to strip existing coatings from your structure without harming the substrate beneath. We use only environmentally safe stripping agents, and have the expertise to determine which compounds will work best both for removing your existing coatings and for not harming the asset.
If your next surface preparation job may necessitate chemical stripping services, we’re ready to discuss it. Get in touch with Crown Coatings & Contracting Company today to talk about how we can help return your asset to the way it used to look.

The role of the 4C’s coatings inspector is to ensure that the coating manufacturer's instructions are followed and specified requirements are achieved. In this way, the performance of a coatings system can be optimized and the design service life attained. This quality-assured approach maximizes return on investments by providing the lowest possible life cycle costs for a coatings system when calculated on a cost-per-year basis.
4C's NACE / BGAS trained and certified inspectors utilize a comprehensive assortment of state-of-the-art test instrumentation and equipment to verify and document compliance with your specification requirements.
The major quality inspection points typically include the following criteria:
• Contamination and structural defects have been removed from the substrate prior to surface preparation operations.
• Weather conditions are within the specified tolerances.
• The surface preparation and coatings application equipment are adequate to produce the desired results, considering the project scope and conditions of work.
• The surface preparation is achieving the specified results with respect to cleanliness and surface roughness.
• The coatings materials are as specified.
• The coatings are properly mixed and applied in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and specifications' requirements.
• The coatings system has been applied to the specified dry film thickness and is free from unallowable defects.
Other value-added benefits of inspection include problem avoidance through timely identification and resolution of concerns, improved communication through detailed daily reports, tracking of nonconforming work and complete documented history of the work performed.
For most facility owners, protective coatings systems represent a significant financial investment that clearly warrants a dedicated and comprehensive quality assurance effort to ensure that their investment is successful. In contrast, the consequences of premature coatings failures can be far-reaching and generally result in damages several times that of the original installation cost due to impacts on operations, lost revenues, damage to the physical asset and complete removal and replacement of the failed coatings.
Although coating selection is a critical factor, today's high performance protective coatings systems are complex materials that can be difficult to apply and unforgiving of the many variables associated with their installation. A full-time 4C’s coatings inspector is the single best investment that can be made toward preventing costly premature coatings failures.
4C’s professionals offers industrial and commercial markets solutions to corrosion protection and aesthetic challenges through superior analysis of coatings performance and paint application problems.
4C is founded as an independent organization for evaluating the performance of protective coatings in corrosive environments, for corrosion auditing and for right coating system recommendations. The 4C consultant has a B.Tech degree in chemical engineering and BGAS CSWIP Protective Coatings Inspector certification. The full knowledge and expertise of this group can be brought to bear on resolving even the most complex coatings issue.

Coating Condition Assessments/Paint Surveys:
Coatings/corrosion protection is the single largest cost item associated with the maintenance of steel, concrete and most other structures, and managing and planning repairs, renovations and other maintenance needs can be a daunting task. A thorough assessment of current coating conditions provides the necessary information to owners for determining the most cost-effective maintenance strategy. Utilizing decades of specialized expertise in coating materials, industry standards and assessment techniques, 4C performs coating condition assessments to develop recommendations on maintenance, repair or replacement of existing coating systems.
4C consultants provide an assessment of a broad range of factors known to impact coating system longevity and performance, as well as maintenance strategies including visible coating deterioration and corrosion, coating thickness, coating adhesion, surface preparation, and toxic metal content. Failure patterns are also identified so that alternative remediation strategies like spot repair and zone painting can be considered along with total removal and replacement. Once desired maintenance options are identified and prior to preparing bid documents, 4C’s professional begins the process of preparing opinions of probable cost.
4C gathers background information (i.e., construction and painting history) and reviews drawings in order to become familiar with site-specific conditions. Field assessments are made on accessible areas of representative structural components and samples are removed from representative areas of the structure for laboratory evaluation. The field and laboratory data are analyzed to determine alternative painting strategies, and a report is issued detailing the observations and findings.
Paint and Coating Specifications:
The long-term success of any project is greatly determined by proper planning, and execution of the plan. Managing and planning repairs, renovations and other maintenance needs of steel, concrete and other structures can be massive. A thorough assessment of current coating conditions provides the necessary information for determining the most cost-effective maintenance strategy. Selection of coating materials and corresponding levels of surface preparation for the chosen maintenance strategy are equally important in protecting an owner’s fixed asset. Unfortunately, none of the results of the first two steps are of value unless effectively communicated to prospective contractors through a technical specification so that desired outcomes are achieved.
4C’s consultants have prepared many coatings and toxic metal specifications for a variety of facility owners. Project-specific technical specifications are prepared based on options and criteria derived from coatings and/or environmental assessments. The specifications address issues relating to required surface preparation and coating application and/or unique controls required to mitigate recognized environmental, public or worker health hazards from the toxic metals in the existing coating.
4C specifications are provided in 3 parts: General, Materials, and Execution and uniquely tailored to the project based on the findings and recommendations presented in the design report. When the project involves the disturbance of paints containing toxic metals, requirements for worker and environmental protection, containment, and management of the hazardous waste are provided in a separate specification. Where possible, specifications are written in “performance” language, so that goals and objectives are established while leaving the means and methods of construction/compliance to the contractor. The end result is a clear-cut, effective plan of execution that meets the needs of the owner and properly protects the asset/structure.
Our trained and skilled coatings applicators and blasters together with dedicated quality inspectors and team supervisors utilise the best coating systems and the latest applications equipment and surface preparation technologies.
We do manpower (labour supply) contracting service on the basis of total surface area to be coated per day or hour.
This is why 4C is one of the top approved coatings applicators in the entire region , recognised by leading international and local coatings manufacturers.
