A lighthouse in Jersey required to be refurbished as the previously applied conventional coating system had failed and their were signs of severe wear and tear damage.
The lighthouse had to be encapsulated due to the harsh weather conditions found next to the coast. The encapsulation also ensured that no debris from the surface preparation procedures would fall into the sea.
All externals cracks were opened up; resulting in the release of water held within the walls. Abrasive blasting was utilised as the surface preparation method.
One primer coat of Damp-crete™ RH 800 was applied over the entire concrete structure. All holes and cracks were then filled with Chem-concrete™ RI 800CRS.
One coat of solvent-free, wet tolerant epoxy Epo-chem™ RA 500M was then applied as an impermeable barrier before one high gloss topcoat of Fast-guard™ RN 500TC was applied.
The project was successfully completed within the given timeframe and to the complete satisfaction of all parties involved.
By utilising Chemco’s unique technology, the following benefits were achieved:
- Solvent-free solution
- Environmentally friendly
- High gloss finish
- Excellent saltwater resistance
- No project delays
- Long-term maintenance-free protection
