Product Profile

Profile: Australasian Specialty Coatings

When was Australasian Speciality Coatings and founded and why?
Australasian Speciality Coatings was founded in 2003, the business was created after the CEO Louis Longhi spotted a gap in the market for protection of waste facilities.  He noticed that concrete floors, leachate ponds, bunds, and steel platforms were being eroded and eaten away by aggressive waste streams and mechanical movements.  The business was created to protect floors from assets not meeting their life span.

With over 60 years of combined experience in the coatings and asset protection industry, we are able to provide our clients with a turnkey approach to maintenance and protection of the most important and sensitive parts of their operations. Working on new builds or remediation and maintenance of working structures, ASC will be there to assist every step of the way.

To ensure we meet all current standards ASC is fully certified to ISO 9001 Quality, AS/NZS 4801 OH&S and ISO 14001 Environmental Assurance Standards. We are also accredited in NSW Government 5th Edition Work Health and Safety Management Systems.

Our experienced staff are key to our performance.

What are some of ASC’s plans for the next 12-18 months?

Australasian Speciality Coatings has just announced an addition to its Transfer Shed Flooring range with a new rapid cure range of protective coatings for tipping floors.

Waste transfer station floors need regular maintenance to prevent the activity in the shed wearing away the concrete and exposing the steel underneath.

ASC offers a range of solutions to protect the concrete surface, including wear layers and resurfacing materials.

These materials use epoxy and polyurethane technology for rapid turnaround, as well as improved chemical and wear resistance.

Turnaround time is important for floor re-surfacing: replacing the concrete slab or adding a topping slab using concrete can require weeks of cleaning, forming, laying and curing, during which the surface can’t be used for tipping operations.

The aim is to resurface your floors without interrupting your business.  We are able to turnaround large areas in 2-3 days and hand it back resurfaced, cured and ready to take on a front-end loader.
