The Future of the Painting Industry
As J.R. Webb & Son (1932) Ltd continue to adhere to the traditions of our long history, we are also conscious of the future. Of particular importance to us is understanding and minimising our impact on the environment. The continued development of water-based epoxies, low VOC paints and biodegradable cleaners and plastics are key components of our Environmental Policy.
Technology plays a pivotal role in contributing to a healthy and safe workplace. Ozone generators (oxygenators) are machines that quickly eliminate paint fumes. Oxygenators are highly effective in places such as hospitals, where minimal interruption is imperative. An oxygenator left running overnight will thoroughly remove residual smells from that day’s painting. The machine will banish headaches along with the smell. You’d never know our crew was there the day before!
Drones are an emerging technology that we’re using to survey larger projects as part of our consultation and proposal process.
We’re now able to prepare surfaces to a finer degree, utilising a Vapour blaster. A dust-free paint removal process, the vapour blaster cleans by its flow of water, rather than impact, as with traditional paint-stripping methods.
