AISC Painting And Blasting For Steel Stacks
A unique advantage of choosing to partner with T BAILEY, INC. is that our grounds hold both a fabrication facility and a state-of-the-art coatings facility.
Our large coatings building had dedicated rooms for each step in the coatings process — a surface prep room, a paint room, and a heated drying room. The rooms are arranged in a large bay where rails in the floor allow T BAILEY, INC.’s coating experts to quickly wheel products through each stage of the coating process. This enables us to blast, coat, and dry steel stacks with maximum efficiency and turn-around time.
Our blasting and AISC painting services include:
- Washes to remove oil, salt, and other contaminants from the steel.
- Machine and manual blasting to prepare steel for coating.
- Stack metalizing (including zinc and aluminum).
- High-temperature paints and simple primers (including urethanes, epoxies, enamels, and vinyl ester coating).

Industrial Steel Stack Fabrication Process
T BAILEY, INC. is your one-stop-shop for industrial stacks. Our production process generally proceeds in the following steps:
- We start with detailing. Come to us with the stack designs and our detailers will detail them per your drawings.
- Cutting and rolling. We’ll cut the steel plate with our CNC plasma cutters and then roll it into cylinders.
- Welding and assembly. Our expert welders will seal the longitudinal seams of each cylinder and then weld the cylinders together to form stack sections.
- Hardware fitting. Some steel stacks require hardware. This could include manways, nozzles, stiffener rings, lifting lugs, and helical strakes.
- The final step is blasting and coating. Our industrial coating division will prepare and treat the steal per your specifications.
