OVERVIEW

The existing masonry production area walls (500m²) required a complete re-coat without any disruption to other areas of the plant. It also had to be carried out in a very tight timescale and have no odours. The surface finish had to be easy to wash and decontaminate seamless with food contact approval.

CHALLENGE

Working in a very restrictive area, limited timescale, minimal surface preparation, FDA approval, odourless product, combined with temperature variations added to the difficulty of the project.

SOLUTION

OUTCOME

The work was carried out on time, with no delays to the programme and no impact on other contractors working in close proximity. Since this project was completed, the client has specified the same system for similar plants in Northern Ireland.

BENEFITS

• Solvent-free
• No major delays to program
