Epo-chem™ RL 500PF on Galvanised Steel

OVERVIEW:    Original fabrication and galvanising treatment were completed in Asia to a substandard degree. This was rectified with long term corrosion protection for aggressive coastal environments applied to meet construction schedule.




Aggressive marine conditions


Galvanised Structural Steel


This project presented two challenges to our team. The first challenge was coming up with a coating system that would adhere well to galvanised steel. The second challenge was making sure that this system would also be suitable for the very aggressive coastal environment.


Epo-chem™ RL 500PF is a surface and moisture tolerant epoxy that is well suited to this environment as it has superior adhesion to new or aged galvanised surfaces. 


Firstly, we prepared the surface ready for the application of the primer. 

Our team then applied 2 coats of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF. 

To ensure no moisture could form in the crevices we sealed all cracks and crevices using a polyurethane sealant. 

The fascia was finished off with a polyurethane finish coat in black.


After extensive surface preparation and surface rectification we were able to apply the best protective coating solution for this environment
