About our Corrosion Protection and Coating Solution:

  1. Coating: Southey Contracting is the longest-standing provider of Corrosion Protection and Coating in South Africa. Our services are designed to control corrosion, eliminating the need for costly steel replacement while meeting regulatory and safety requirements. Our staff includes a large and growing number of professionals certified by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE). Southey’s Maintenance Painting Management System (MPMS) is a proactive, systematic approach that enables you to protect more square metres from corrosion and coating degradation while lowering the cost of painting and surface preparation.
  2. Fire Proofing: For structures housing flammable materials (such as Hydrogen). High expertise and highly regulated.
  3. Surface Preparation: Our ability to get into and treat confined, high-risk spaces is unique to Southey. Our technology reduces the number of people required to complete the preparation task to the highest standards. Poor preparation = poor painting.
  4. Corrosion Protection: Solution also includes concrete protection (along with steel protection systems). In addition, Southey provides “wear-resistant coatings – such as rubber linings – often used when material is transported on conveyers. Serves as protection from corrosion and impact damage.
