OVERVIEW

The roof of a consumer goods warehouse was suffering from corrosion damage and required to be refurbished.

The area for refurbishment covered over 6,000m².

CHALLENGE

The roof had some leaks which were required to be fixed; grit blasting was not permissible.

Furthermore, application had to take place in relatively high humidity.

SOLUTION

The roof was mechanically prepared using wire brushes and abrasive pads.

Despite visible rust remaining on the surface, Chemco was able to specify an appropriate coating system for such reduced preparation standards.

One coat of wet & rust tolerant epoxy RL 500PF was applied to all corroded areas.

The entire roof was then coated with an external roof coating which was specified by the client to give a high gloss finish.

OUTCOME

The project was completed quicker than would have been possible using conventional paints; and with no additional delays caused by the high humidity.

BENEFITS

  • Wet and rust tolerant
  • No Grit blasting required
