How We Do Business
Step 1 Consultation
Gather information. PRP® Industries explores sources of paint and corrosion problems, evaluates needs, products, processes, equipment and staff. Our staff will interview:
- Sales staff, which understand field expectations.
- Superintendents, who understands production.
- Purchasing representatives, regarding budget.
- Plant Visit
Step 2 Plant Visit
Evaluate current paint process and chemicals, field performance and production requirements and limitations. What is the environment that the equipment will operate in? What are your coating objectives and desired end results: aesthetics, durability, life cycle or anti-corrosion. What are your facility capacities? What is working and not working? Identify proprietary chemicals and equipment that might integrate with your needs and facilities.
- Consolidate Information
Step 3 Consolidate Information
Aggregate research, including pictures, process times, readings, and staff input. The PRP® team of engineers in the field of chemistry, manufacturing, and equipment meet to formulate options and develop a tentative plan.
- Discuss Options
Step 4 Discuss Options
Is tentative plan on track to meet customers' needs and objectives? The PRP® total system approach includes everything needed to get you to your desired end result, including but not limited to: pretreatment and coating equipment if needed, chemicals, primers, top coats, metal treatment, processes, procedures, training and quality control.

Client agrees on a tentative proposal and plan. PRP® experts revisit clients to ask questions and fine-tune proposal.
Step 6 Finalize Proposal
Final proposal covers the total cost of the project, including coatings, chemicals and any equipment and labor needed to get you up and running. Proposed systems integrate into current processes as much as possible. New or adaptations to existing equipment in only introduced when necessary to help client meet objective.
- Establish Plant Start-Up Timeline
Step 7 Establish Plant Start-Up Timeline
PRP® Industries manufacturing engineers become part of your operations team, and plant implementation may occur on weekends and nights to minimize production disruptions.
- Proprietary Products are Shipped
Step 8 Proprietary Products are Shipped
From heavy-duty surfactant pretreatments, to chemical steel conditioners, to CORSOL® corrosion solution, PRP® Industries has all the products you need to reach your desired end results.
- Implement Coating Process
Step 9 Implement Coating Process
PRP® Industries installs equipment. The focus is on meeting established deadlines, objectives and end results. PRP® promises to meet established timeline and will stay on site to train staff and ensure equipment is fully operational. We also develop, print and issue customized SOP client manuals so that your system runs smoothly in our absence.
