Secondary Containment – Distillery
Distillers and blenders of famous malt and blended whisky, the Edrington Group required a seamless coating system to comply with current legislation. The existing ceramic tile floor had to be retained due to cost and time limitation. Seamless, FDA food contact approval to comply with the legislation.
Working in a live production area, minimal surface preparation, limited timescale, combined with application of coating on ceramic tiles and with no disruption to the operation. A solvent-free solution was required.
Easi-prime™ RX 500P, a water-based epoxy with excellent adhesion to ceramic tiles was applied @ 100µ followed by one coat of solvent-free, wet tolerant glassflake topcoat Epo-chem™ RA 564 @ 200µ by brush and roller.
The work was carried out on time, within budget and with no delays to the complete satisfaction of the client.
