Challenge

Asset owners of the Extension Leveller Cassette engaged us to inspect and
nominate a complete coating solution
where standard paint systems failed to
prevent surface deterioration resulting in
large refurbishment costs

Chemco’s Solution 

RL 500PF is a surface / wet tolerant zinc rich
epoxy, required to a uniform thickness for
smooth functioning

Condition in Situ
After Blasting
Inspection in Workshop
Coating Application on Site

Scope

Grind sharp edges and weld porosity.

Abrasive blast to AS 1627.4 Class 3, 75µm profile

Application of RL 500PF with nominate thickness 300 microns

Application of 1 coat of RC 500GTC to a final DFT of 400µm

Results

Since re-coating was carried out by Chemcote, the extension leveller has been found to be in excellent condition and maintenance costs have been dramatically reduced
