I am a young painter and looking to expand. I have done residential and commercial painting for 6 years. I am expanding to roof coating, ag painting, including pole barns, grain bins, sealing grain bins, and much more... any experience or advice would be appriceated. considering I am 19, looking at Conklins and Truco as coating providers.

Welcome!

As a more technical guy rather then a business owner, I was going to ask you to provide us with some specifics of the coating systems you use and what best practices you follow, in order to establish a benchmark for where you're at.

I am not familiar with Conklins and Truco. can you provide a little information on them.

Thanks,

CApainter

Yes truco is a urethane based product i apply to all types of roofs, built up, bitumen, tpo, edpm, and metal. this comes with a ten year warranty. the conklin is acrylic product as a cheaper option that comes with a 7 year warranty, used mostly on metal roofs. I am looking for help when it comes to painting grain bins vs. coating them. painting is obviously cheaper, yet coating will last longer. also spraying the bases of bins to seal the air flow.

So it appears you're using the terms painting and coating for different applications. I'm assuming you mean by "painting" you are applying a waterborne acrylic. And the term "coating" you are applying an industrial solvent based epoxy, perhaps requiring a blasted surface?

I think about those terms in different ways. "Painting" is kind of an artsy term to me. It's mostly about making surfaces look pretty. Coatings application is a little different. Epoxy systems with specific mil tolerances for instance, as opposed to 'painting' your bathroom.

Welcome to the forum Peter.

This is a topic that comes up often in my field. Even though the two words are often used interchangeably and are acceptable in basic conversation. The term coating is considered the system of protective paints and primers used together to paint the exterior of a structure vs. a lining which is used to describe a coating system used to protect the inside of a structure such as pipe lines, tanks and ballast. A good example of a coating system would be a steel surface coated with a zinc, epoxy, urethane system. The zinc provides the cathodic protection to the steel, expoxy intermediate coat adds a durable coat to the zinc and performs as a tie coat for the urethane to bond to and provide a UV barrier for the epoxy. Each individual coat could be called a paint

BTW: Welcome to the forum too.

I can't tell if peter is referring to the interior or exterior of the grain bins. I do understand what Mustang Mike describes as a coating system verses a paint. That makes sense. However, couldn't a waterborne industrial DTM paint, like PPG Pitt Tech, be considered a coating if its used as a protective barrier, albeit less expensive than?

Peter's quote suggests he's performing the same task, but with different materials.
