Chemical Bund Lining
The previous concrete bund had been severely eroded by the acidic cleaning product stored within it.
As a result, the client required a new concrete bund and was looking to protect it with a coating system which had suitable chemical resistance.
There could be no disruption to other ongoing work nearby.
Grit blasting and the use of solvent-based paints were not permissible.
The surfaces were mechanically prepared by vacuum controlled diamond grinding to remove surface laitance and contamination.
The surface was then primed with one coat of solvent-free, concrete primer RH 800.
All blow holes in the concrete were filled with a twin component polyester filler to ensure a seamless finish.
This was followed by two coats of solvent-free, glassflake epoxy Novolac RW 500.
The project was successfully completed without disruption the working plant; allowing significant time and cost savings to be achieved.
• No grit blasting required
• No disruption to other nearby ongoing work
• Exceptional chemical resistance
• Significantly reduced H&S and Fire Hazards
