A clean, attractive layer of paint on heavy equipment reflects well on a company. Moreover, a protective coat of paint can protect equipment from corrosive elements that lessen the value of the machinery. The quality of paint used on heavy equipment should be both fade-resistant and abrasion-resistant. Routine inspections and maintenance control of corrosion (rust) are vital for the integrity and continued use of the machinery. Scheduled application of a durable rust protective paint coating can ensure the machinery has a long service life free of corrosion.
