Guardian Coatings specializes in cleaning and protecting heavy equipment, marine, and hard surface flooring with a patented system of powerful siloxane coatings. No matter what surface we are working with, we help protect our customers’ investments while reducing total cost of ownership. Our three areas of focus are heavy equipment (lifts, farm, rental), marine (boats, docks), and hard surface flooring (tile, concrete, pavers, natural stone).
Guardian Coatings has worked with schools, restaurants, boat owners and heavy equipment rental companies to protect their capital investments. Let us show you how we can protect you as well!
Our heavy equipment coatings main goal is to protect against wear and corrosion. Keeping machinery maintained year after year through constant and grueling wear and tear, and keeping it clean inside and out are among the biggest challenges for fleet operators of heavy equipment and concrete trucks, as well as owners of large industrial plant equipment. Corrosive materials, harsh terrains, and the physically demanding nature of the work performed by this type of equipment make ongoing maintenance and cleaning, and the costly associated downtime, an unavoidable reality for those operating within these industries.
Guardian Coatings uses a highly advanced, unique industrial level coating for heavy equipment, concrete trucks, fleets, and plant equipment that dramatically reduces both the scope and intensity of those challenges while also keeping the coated equipment and machinery looking like it just came off the assembly-line. Putting it in a category all its own, the coating works on virtually all surfaces, including painted and unpainted steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, and rubber. This unique characteristic sets it apart from all other comparable products by effectively eliminating the costly time otherwise required to mask off non-painted surfaces and to apply multiple coatings to any single piece of equipment. The coating has been uniquely engineered to penetrate and bond at the molecular level with the substrates to which it is applied, resulting in an actual molecular fusion between the surface and coating. The modified surface maintains a new, shiny appearance that is resistant to chemical and other corrosive forces at a level simply unparalleled by competing products.
Protecting heavy machinery with Guardian Coatings allows for efficient, thorough, and greatly simplified maintenance and cleaning. Eliminating the necessity for having to use abrasive chemicals, acids, scraping or chipping away buildup significantly reduces the need for extensive maintenance, component and wiring replacement, repair and repainting of equipment. Indeed, utilizing our proprietary coatings, cleaning equipment and machinery is often reduced to no more than washing away debris with a hose or mild soap and water. And reduced use of acidic chemicals is of course better for the machinery, better for the environment, and better for your bottom line.
Reduced maintenance will not only improve the lifespan of heavy machinery, but equipment with more up time reduces the overall cost of ownership. All the while looking bright, shiny and new which keeps resale value high. Not to mention, cleaner and new looking equipment provide a sense of pride in ownership in an increasingly brand conscience age.
Our marine coatings not only protect the look of your investment on the water, but increase the performance as well when applied to the hull running gear of your watercraft to increase speed or lower your fuel costs. The glass-like barrier not only protects against environmental elements but the non-porous, positively charged surface is also no longer appealing to marine life such as barnacles and algae.
Guardian Coatings can protect below the water line as well as above by creating a glass-like protective barrier between the surface and environmental elements. Outdoor elements eventually penetrate the factory finish of every component of every marine vessel of all sizes. We offer a line of revolutionary coatings formulated differently for each feature of your vessel from delicate engine parts, electronics, instrument panels, to the actual hull and running gear of your craft. No vessel is too large or too small and protection can begin at any time.
Due to the science behind the marine line of coatings, they can be applied to vessels of any age. In many cases, the use of the right coating can even restore existing materials such as gelcoat and porous metals to a new like state. Once coated, they remain beautifully protected for an extensive period of time.
The chemistry behind our marine coatings allows them to create a unique fusion or bond to the marine component being protected. Since this bond is nearly unbreakable, the usual damage causing agents like sun, salt, and abrasion face our glass-like barrier of protection instead of the surface of
Hard Surface Flooring Coatings
Our floor coatings are extremely durable and thus reduce the overall cost of maintenance. One of the big problems associated with hard surface flooring is mold and mildew in the grout lines. Guardian Coatings help reduce the growth of mold and mildew by eliminating the food source required to grow by using an inorganic coating. Siloxane coatings are inorganic film formers that adhere by both London Force and Covalent Bond methods to clean, hard surfaces providing a thin but powerful effective barrier. Grout lines are completely sealed and grout odors caused by accumulating oils, grime, dirt, urine, mold, spills, etc. are eliminated.
Before any coating is applied, a deep clean of the floor is performed to remove anything that could potentially create a problem with the bonding process. When cleaned, most of the time the floors look “brand new” or “restored”, but we don’t stop there. After our coating is applied, the floors will have a high gloss finish making your customers “ooh and ah”. The appearance will remain for years with minimal maintenance requiring no buffing with just water or neutral PH cleaners. Once coated, your floors will be considered “high traction” by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI). Wear resistance insures long term durability.
Our hard surface flooring protection doesn’t just stop with tile and grout floors as we work with concrete floors, pavers, and natural stone. It is commonly found on many surfaces in hospitals, restaurants, department stores, arenas, airports, etc. where sustained antimicrobial performance, appearance, and low maintenance costs are desirable. Longevities of 3-5 years are typical when proper care and maintenance protocol is followed.
