OVERVIEW

The secondary containment bund was suffering from wear and tear damage and required a new seamless lining which would prevent solvent egress in the event of a leak or spillage.

CHALLENGE

The client required a smooth, seamless finish. Grit blasting could not be utilised. There could also be no disruption to the surrounding areas due to other ongoing work.

SOLUTION

The concrete and corroded steel were mechanically prepared. A specialised concrete repair system was utilised to fill blow holes and porosity within the concrete. One coat of solvent-free, wet tolerant concrete primer Damp-crete™ RH 800 was then applied. This was followed by two coats of solvent-free, glassflake epoxy Novolac Epo-chem™ RW 500.

OUTCOME

By utilising an alternative surface preparation method to grit blasting and solvent-free coating systems, the project was carried out in the most cost-effective, efficient and safe manner. There was also no disruption to the working plant.

BENEFITS

• Solvent-free
• No grit blasting
• Exceptional chemical resistance
• No disruption to other ongoing work
• Substantial time and cost savings
