Gel Coating water slides

Water park ride surfaces are subjected to some of the most brutal conditions in the amusement industry.  From harsh UV exposure, submersion in chlorinated water, and near constant guest traffic during peak season, it’s no wonder these rides end up looking so tired and worn out!  gel coat before after

A key component to maintaining not only a water slide’s aesthetic appeal, but also it’s functional integrity – comes from the regular inspection and restoration of worn out fiberglass surfaces, via gel coating.

From sand-blasting and stripping off previously applied coatings along with the original top layer of factory finish, to properly cleaning and preparing the surface for it’s new top coat, there are many important steps required in order to achieve a beautiful and long lasting finish that can proudly be displayed for years to come.

Baynum Painting has 30+ years of history as the amusement industry’s premier coating specialist, and contacting our team of composite coating experts is the best choice you can make when it’s time to maintain your slides and rides.

Check out the video below of gel coating specialist Adam Million applying a much needed new finish on a water slide:

Western and Southern Open – Cincinnati Painting

As the tennis world focuses on Cincinnati this week during the incredible Western and Southern Open tournament at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, Baynum Painting is thrilled to see our name hanging above the court’s grandstand.  Having painted the grandstands in 2011 and 2012, they still look great!  Rigging the structure to reach all of the surfaces to be painted took some time, but our crew of climbers and rigging specialists always find a way to reach the most difficult areas.  Our team can be seen at the tennis center each year helping freshen the site up in advance of the big tournament, and we love to be courtside during the actual matches as well.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out this awesome event in Cincinnati, you are missing out!

Painting over a Shark Tank at Newport Aquarium

It’s not every day that a painter looks down off the ladder they’re working from to see something like this:

Just down the street from Baynum Painting‘s office is one of Northern KY’s greatest attractions, the famous Newport Aquarium, whom we were thrilled to do some painting for this month.  While our team is always fully focused on health & safety at the job site, you can bet that the painters were extra careful with their ladder safety and situational awareness on this project!

We had a blast working with the fine folks at the Newport Aquarium, an awesome facility with beautiful attractions.  Be sure to stop by and check it out next time you’re in Cincinnati!

Painting a giant frisbee – Delirium at Kings Island

Just in time for the park’s exciting 2014 opening, Baynum Painting’s team has completed a repaint of the giant frisbee ride structure known as Delirium at Kings Island.  We think the 137′ high ride looks excellent with it’s glossy new coat of color, and can’t wait to ride it along with the freshly painted Bat, Xtreme Skyflyer, and Banshee this weekend!

Painting the ride cars for Ragin’ Cajun at Six Flags America

Six Flags America has an awesome spinning roller coaster coming to their all new Mardi Gras section in 2014 known as Ragin’ Cajun.  As we are getting ready to coat the track and ride structure, the roller coaster’s unique spin cars can be seen here getting prepared and painted by Baynum Painting’s team.

Along with the new Zydeco Zinger color scheme, we love the look of this new part of Six Flags America, and can’t wait to visit during the open season!
