APT Client - WEPA
Client – WEPA UK, Bridgend, Wales
Project – Commercial Deep Cleaning & Industrial Painters for their Paper Mill

What did the client need?

APT was contacted by WEPA UK to provide commercial deep cleaning services and industrial painters to paint and clean their paper mill located in Bridgend, Wales. The client had dismantled their paper mill to allow APT sufficient time to deep clean the machines and then undertake the industrial painters services.

How did we approach it?

Prior to commencing the painting project at the Bridgend mill, a crucial preliminary step was to ensure the thorough deep cleaning of the machinery to eliminate accumulated grease and grime buildup. It’s worth noting that a recurring issue often encountered with industrial painting companies, including many industrial painting contractors, is the inadequacy of cleaning methods employed. This issue frequently arises due to the use of incorrect or insufficient cleaning products, or the application of the wrong cleaning process.

Inadequate cleaning can have several adverse consequences in industrial settings. It can compromise the adhesion and longevity of the paint, leading to premature deterioration and the need for more frequent repainting. Moreover, it can result in an uneven and subpar finish, affecting both the aesthetics and functionality of the equipment or surfaces being painted.

At APT, we understand the critical role that thorough deep cleaning plays in the success of any industrial painting project. Our experienced industrial painters prioritise proper cleaning techniques and use specialised, effective cleaning products tailored to each unique project. This approach ensures that the surface is impeccably prepared, allowing for superior paint adhesion, longevity, and an impeccable finish. When you choose APT as your industrial painter, you can trust that we leave no stone unturned when it comes to surface preparation, guaranteeing the highest quality results.

What was the solution?

As APT have 30 years’ experience in the chemical industry we know the exact application for specialist deep cleaning of the mill, the machinery, associated items and components as requested by the onsite engineer before the industrial painting could commence.

The cleaning method we proposed and subsequently used was dry ice blasting. This process is perfect for mill and machine component cleaning, it ensures no damage is caused as ice blasting is a sympathetic cleaning method. Using ice blasting means that intricate areas of the machinery can be reached quickly and with ease. Eco-friendly cleaning chemicals such Ultramax 2020 (Powermax 2020) were used to assist in the cleaning process.

Once the cleaning was complete and approved, the mill and metal surfaces were recoated and primed by our industrial painting contractors on site at Bridgend, Wales. We use our specialist industrial paint supplier to achieve in the desired pantone colour and the correct paint for the mill in Bridgend.

What was the outcome?

The client was completely satisfied with the results of the deep cleaning and industrial painting services provided by APT. As a result, they requested a quotation for further cleaning of the warehouse. APT was able to meet the needs of WEPA UK by providing effective and efficient deep cleaning and industrial painters services to their paper mill.
