The tank tops and the bulkheads (up to 0.5m high) were grit blasted to Sa 2.5 standards. Prior to the coating application, the surfaces were swept and vacuumed to remove any dust and other contamination.
The coating specification was as follows:
• Two coats of Chem-tect™ RB 364 @ 500μ DFT per coat by airless spray
• One stripe coat of Chem-tect™ RB 364 by brush
• One topcoat of Chem-tect™ RB 300TC @ 100μ DFT by airless spray
