RFI Consultants LLC is an Arizona based, veteran owned small business that operates as an Independent NACE Certified Coatings Inspection and Coatings Consulting Company.
RFI Consultants exists to provide inspection services to minimize the risk of premature or catastrophic coating failures. Coatings must be applied under the correct specifications, conditions and manufacturer’s guidelines. The consulting and inspection services provide written reports certified by the NACE Inspectors that the specification has been followed.
Our company is built to provide excellence as independent coating inspectors and consultants in both the industrial and architectural coatings spectrum to include high performance flooring, secondary containment and much more. Providing these services we can minimize the risk of pre-mature or complete coating system failures. Coating system failures, whether extensive or minor, can cause implications with financial impacts, but the implications could be far reaching. In the litigious society being proactive to avoid the unnecessary chain of events (a few are listed below) is worth the upfront investment of a certified coating inspector.
- Legal Actions
- Client Relations Strained and/or Dissolved
- Disruption of Services
- Community Outrage
Most of the consequences are very preventable! Some of the more common coating problems are as follows:
- Coating system incorrectly specified for the intended service
- Utilization of old or damaged coatings
- Coatings applied outside the manufacturer’s guidelines
- Poor surface preparation
- Poor application
Think of our services like an insurance policy that you control. By working closely with you and developing a complete understanding of your project’s particular needs, we can provide the services that are needed to protect you and your project at a fair price.
RFI is fully committed to operating and maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, safety and service. Our profession and customers demand this type of commitment and we will not settle for anything less.
Our company has over 150 years of combined real world experience. This experience provides a strong foundation that is securely built on extensive technical coatings knowledge and getting our hands dirty in the real world of surface preparation and application of industrial and commercial coatings.
We are continually reviewing the most up to date coatings related research and training in order to better serve our clients. RFI Consultants’ employees work each day on an acronym of CARE (Clarity, Accountability, Resourcefulness, and Experience). Providing our clients with CARE means nothing is taken for granted. Again, we assess each project based on its own unique performance and service requirements in order to exceed the long-term performance and protection goals and our client’s financial investment.
