Staingard AC

Deliver a scratch free steel product

Temporary Steel Protection

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR STEEL ASSETS

How and why to use Staingard?

Scenario 1. Delivery of a scratch free JCB. The ‘as is’ process for a steel fabricator:

  1. A manufacture fabricates a steel product that is part of a larger steel structure.
  2. Whilst the product is inspected, quality issues are found.
  3. The imperfection is addressed, but as it is painted – it needs the paint blasted off, then the structure is fixed, then repainted.
  4. Product is then shipped to site and inspected again.
  5. Product is rejected because it got damaged in transit.
  6. Product is sent back to manufacture to be re-blasted.
  7. Product is sent back to the customer and re-inspected with everyone holding their breath waiting to establish if the asset is in pristine condition.
  8. Customer is happy with the product quality, but the customer is not happy that they have had to wait longer than their quoted available to promise date.

Scenario 1. The ‘to be’ process for delivering a scratch free steel product using Staingard AC:

  1. A manufacture fabricates a steel product.
  2. The product is inspected and issues are found.
  3. The imperfection is addressed – but as it is painted – it needs the paint blasted off, then the structure is fixed, then repainted.
  4. This time the fabricator sprays it with Staingard AC to protect the asset.
  5. Product is sent to site and inspected, but this time Staingard AC protects the asset and it passes and customer is happy the first time around.

Scenario 2. The ‘as is’ process for the steel fabricator completing the manufacture of a finished product to be sent to a customer

  1. A manufacture fabricates a steel product – doesn’t yet know what colour or finish will be required, so it is put into stores for stock. An order comes in for 4 products and they all need to be green.
  2. Fabricator goes to spray the products but sees some have deep scratches down them, so they need to be reworked. Then they can be painted green.
  3. Finished product is shipped to customer.
  4. Products are inspected on arrival. 3 pass the inspection and 1 is rejected.
  5. Product is then shipped back (more time wasted for the customer), re-blasted (more cost in labour and materials), then resprayed (more cost), then resent to the customer (more cost).
  6. Customer reinspects the product, is happy with it, but unhappy with the delay (potential financial implications here).

Scenario 2. The ‘to be’ process for the steel fabricator completing the manufacture of a finished product to be sent to a customer using Staingard AC

  1. A manufacture fabricates a steel product – doesn’t yet know what colour or finish will be required, so they spray it with Staingard AC and it is put into stores / stock.
  2. Order comes in for 4 products and they all need to be green.
  3. Fabricator goes to spray the products, peels off the Staingard – all 4 are in perfect condition – so the part is painted and then resprayed with Staingard AC.
  4. Finished product is shipped to customer.
  5. Products are inspected on arrival. All 4 pass the inspection.
  6. Customer is happy, customer service level scores for OTIF (On Time in Full) 100%.

Scenario 3 without Staingard AC – the ‘as is’ process

  1. Totally Oil have a big steel oil tank that needs a new liner.
  2. They empty the tank, de-gas, clean and blast the tank in readiness for the weld inspections.
  3. 2 weeks later, the inspector looks at the welds.
  4. They pass or fail and then the tank is given to painters to re-line.
  5. The painters have to re-blast is because it has rusted over the 3 weeks. They re-blast, remove the grit and send it all to industrial waste.
  6. They repaint the oil tank.

Scenario 3 with Staingard AC – the ‘to be’ process

  1. Totally Oil have a big steel oil tank that needs a new liner.
  2. They empty the tank, de-gas, clean and blast the tank in readiness for the weld inspections. They then spray it with Staingard AC.
  3. 2 weeks later, the inspector looks at the welds through the Staingard AC (yes, tested and approved to inspect through).
  4. 2 weeks later the painters peel the Staingard AC away a section at a time to paint the blasted steel underneath.
  5. They roll the Staingard AC up into a ball and put it in the normal waste stream.
