Last week, we detailed the sponge blasting stage of Lakeside Painting’s recently completed work for Provisor, a Wisconsin manufacturer of food processing equipment. For this next entry on the Provisor project, we’re going to highlight this industrial job’s wall and ceiling coating work.
After sponge blasting away years of dirt, oil, and grime build-up on the ceilings and walls, we turned our attention to the coating process. For this stage, we had recommended dry fall paint to the customer, so our guys moved from cleaning to setting up for dry fall painting.
A quick word on dry fall paint. Also known as Drop Dry, dry fall is a type of paint with additives that allow paint droplets to rapidly dry—usually across the distance of ten feet. So, when we applied eggshell (white) dry fall paint on our customer’s ceilings, the excess paint fell to the floor in dry form, where it was easily swept up and responsibly disposed of. For the walls, we applied a coating of eggshell white with a combination of dry fall and roller.
In the slideshow below, you can see the dry fall painting process in action at our customer’s manufacturing facility.
