Using RustSeal Safety Colors for Painting Industrial Equipment and Floor Markings

Using safety colors for painting industrial equipment and floor markings is done regularly to enhance visibility, identify potential hazards, and promote workplace safety. Since the safety color paint is exposed to an industrial environment, it needs to stand up to the abuse it will receive. Safety color paints need to coat and protect equipment from corrosion, as well as stand up to the abrasion, scratches, impacts, and chemical exposure they can receive while maintaining an excellent appearance. RustSeal is formulated to do just that and is offered in a variety of safety colors for industrial applications.

RustSeal Safety Colors

RustSeal is an advanced technology moisture cured coating that seals the surface and prevents rust and corrosion. RustSeal bonds strongly to and seals porous surfaces like concrete. Because it is a single part coating, RustSeal is easy to apply and flows out to a beautiful, rock-hard, ceramic-like finish that is impervious to almost every chemical. RustSeal is tough to chip or scratch and will not crack or peel which makes RustSeal safety colors perfect for painting industrial equipment and floor markings.

RustSeal adheres to many different materials it makes for an excellent “one-stop” safety color paint solution for coating a variety of surfaces.

RustSeal can be applied with brush, roller, or spray equipment which makes RustSeal easy to apply on small and large projects minimizing downtime.
