OVERVIEW

The Roads Department of North Lanarkshire Council required heavily rusted galvanised safety barriers to be re-coated in order to preserve them and improve their appearance in an urban area.

CHALLENGE

Limited access, grit blasting and containment not feasible. Potential wet and damp substrate with no protection from the elements, no disruption or disturbance to public was permissible.

SOLUTION

Hand prepared surfaces by wire brush to St2 followed by one coat of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF wet & rust tolerant epoxy primer-finish @ 150µ applied by brush and roller.

OUTCOME

The work was carried out on time, within budget and with minimum inconvenience to the public. Inspected and photographed again in 2011, (page 2) no remedial work was necessary.

BENEFITS

• Only Epo-chem™ RL 500PF could meet all of the customer’s requirements
• The Epo-chem™ RL 500PF system will protect the steel substrate in excess of 10 years
• Any areas that are damaged later can be touched-up with minimum preparation and there is no over-coating time limitation
