Industrial Coatings & Abrasive Blasting

AC Protective Coatings a division of Adler Insulation is located at 8007 39th Leduc Alberta. We offer both shop and mobile services.

Our new facility has 19,000 sq feet of operational space. With a heated separate blast bay, we can significantly reduce the time required to complete the project. Steel temp is critical in the process and removing the risk of flash rusting will ensure when inspectors come to the facility the quality of the blast will be at the highest level. Adjacent to the blast Bay is the fully heated coating and painting bay. This bay has exceptional lighting and air makeup to allow our technicians to apply the specified coatings to the highest quality in a safe environment. The air makes up units drastically reduce overspray and aid in the curing process by limiting the amines and reducing the cure times. Running the full span of both the blast bay and the coating bay area (2) 10-ton cranes. Having the overhead cranes makes offloading and loading of the materials fast, safe, and reduces damage during the loading and offloading stage.

Adler Insulation has been in operation since 1984. Our Coatings Management Team have combined experience of over 90 years. Our installers have over ten years of experience with various material coatings, products, and systems. We apply material for Nuclear, Industrial, Infrastructure and Commercial construction sectors. We primarily service Western Canada, but have the  capacity to service other markets across Canada and Internationally

Blasting & Coatings FAQ

Find answers to the most common questions we get about our abrasive blasting and protecting coating services.

What Are Plural Components?2021-01-08T18:41:23+00:00

Plural components are two or more materials, that when mixed, bond together to create a monolithic barrier. Some materials range from 10% solids all the way to 100% solid.

What Are V.O.C.’s?2021-01-08T18:41:55+00:00

Volatile Organic Compounds are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquid products and processes. VOC’s include a variety of chemicals which can pose short and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of VOC’s can be up to ten times higher in indoor environments vs. outdoor environments.

Why Should We Abrasive Blast? How Does This Help With Corrosion Resistance?2021-01-08T18:42:44+00:00

The cleaner the substrate is, the better corrosion barrier you will have. If rust pockets or mil scale are present the coating will be compromised in those area. If the bond to the substrate is not strong enough the coating will suffer adhesive failure.

What is Cathodic Protection?2021-01-08T18:43:23+00:00

Cathodic protection is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell. A simple method of protection connects the metal to be protected to a more easily corroded “sacrificial metal” to act as the anode. The sacrificial metal then corrodes instead of the protected metal. For structures such as long pipelines, where passive galvanic cathodic protection is not adequate, an external DC electrical power source is used to provide sufficient current.

What Are Anodes and Cathodes?2021-01-11T23:06:53+00:00

Anodes are the positively charged electrode by which the electrons leave a device. Cathodes are the negatively charged electrode by which electrons enter an electrical device. Anodes sacrifice themselves to the cathodes which results in corrosion.
