Rail Rolling Stock – Passenger Coaches
Painting quality of passenger coaches is very critical, because the car is directly exposed transport and weather conditions when moving. The exterior paint job gets hit by stones, dust and sand constantly, damaging the paint and possibly peeling poorly adhered sections.
The interior coating cannot be neglected either. The paint protects the interior from corrosion and the visual appearance of the train car is important to passengers.
The Blastman automatic robot is able to blast clean the interior and exterior surfaces of passenger coaches, whilst providing a constant surface quality for every part of the surface. Constant and high quality blast cleaning is essential, since 80 % of all paint failures are caused by poor surface treatment prior to painting. A high quality surface treatment ensures excellent adhesion between the paint and metal surface.
A mechanically strong paint film also prolongs the life time of a passenger coach. Often manufacturers are required to give a warranty for the paint job. To ensure the coating lasts for a long time, proper surface treatment prior to painting is required. Additionally, proper surface treatment reduces the number of reclamantions, resulting from poor paint job, made by the end customer.
