Epo-chem™ RS 500P was ideal for the ’Arcadia’ refit docking program. It can be applied on minimum surface preparation (WJ-4/St2), it is solvent-free and completely wet tolerant. Within two weeks, some 4,000m² was prepared and coated in voids, cofferdams and ballast tanks. Due to the additional benefits of the product, extra work could be undertaken on decks and engine room floor with no interruption to other works being carried out in the vicinity.
Areas of repair were prepared by high pressure water wash (500-800 bar) to the standard of WJ4. This was followed by one stripe coat and one full coat of Epo chem™ RS 500P @ 200µ applied by brush, roller or spray.
