OVERVIEW: Maximum life expectancy was top on the list when this galvanising plant was looking for a new coating solution. We managed to save time and money during the installation of the long term solution. The customer mentioned he chose us due to our customer service during the initial contact stages of his enquiry.
Highly corrosive range of chemicals including Sodium Hydroxide and Hydrochloric Acid
Concrete Bund in a chemical plant
Upon inspection, the concrete bund was identified to be in a poor condition. This is due to the existing surface deteriorating after years of exposure. There are many locations on the bund that show a degree of damage and there is also evidence of chemical pooling. This seems to indicate that the fall is not functioning properly and, therefore, needs to be addressed and reinstated
To ensure that the maximum life of the coating is achieved for our client, we reviewed the environment conditions, and specified the Chemco International Glass Flake Filled Chem-tect™ 300 series coatings. These coatings have been chosen as they offer excellent chemical and corrosion protection
Mobilise to site
Set up of dehumidification
Follow the Chemcote Concrete Coating surface preparation and priming Procedure
Reinstate the fall, and pit fill the holes using Chem-tect™ RA 300 series:
Application of 1st coat of RA 364 over entire surface
Application of 2nd coat of RA 364 to a DFT of 1000 nominal thickness for all areas
Carry out QA testing
Demobilise from site
This coating project was completed on time, to budget and an inspection after 2 years has been recommended. Our Client was pleased with the result and the service.
