Coatings and Finishes

Any structural steel fabricator will tell you that successfully applying multi-coat, high-performance coatings is one of the most difficult tasks to master. There are a numerous reasons why this part of steel fabrication is so challenging, but among the most common are:

  • lack of floor space
  • improper equipment
  • unskilled labor
  • ineffective application procedures
Where other fabricators see trouble and risk, Merrill Steel sees opportunity, and we've turned that challenge into a major competitive advantage. From the onset, superior coatings and finishes have been a top priority. We currently have about 180,000 square feet space, about 1/3 of our total floor, dedicated to blasting and painting. Our three blasting machines properly clean the steel, providing the perfect profile. All coatings are applied efficiently with state-of-the-art pumps and sprayers.

It's worth noting that all painting takes place in a controlled environment with proper ventilation systems. Merrill Steel carefully monitors our emissions to guarantee we remain in strict compliance with all environmental laws.

Over the decades, Merrill Steel has been able to employ and develop a highly-skilled workforce guided by strict quality-control procedures to ensure that all paint applications meet and exceed our customers' expectations.
