Sulphuric Acid Bund Lining
A tiled sulphuric acid bund area had to be over-coated with a coating system which could offer a seamless finish and could withstand 98% sulphuric acid.
The ceramic tiles could not be removed, therefore a coating system with excellent adhesion to ceramic tiles had to be chosen. Application also had to take place within a confined space.
One coat of water-based epoxy Easi-prime™ RX 500P was applied directly to the ceramic tiles. This was followed by two coats of solvent-free, glassflake epoxy Epo-chem™ RF 500.
By utilising Chemco’s Easi-prime™ RX 500P, the ceramic tiles were not required to be removed. This resulted in a significantly reduced contract duration, allowing substantial cost savings to be achieved.
Solvent-free RF 500 is ideal for application in confined spaces and exhibits exceptional resistance to strong acids (including 98% sulphuric acid).
• Ideal for application within confined spaces
• Outstanding resistance to 98% sulphuric acid
• Exceptional adhesion to ceramic tiles
• Significantly reduced contract duration
• No dehumidification or ventilation requirements
