Chem-tect™ 300 Series for Concrete Bund

Industry                           

Chemical

 

Date

December 2016

 

Substrate

Concrete Bund in a chemical plant.

 

Products

Chem-tect™ RA 364

 

Environment                   

Highly corrosive range of chemicals including Sodium Hydroxide and Hydrochloric Acid.

 

Challenge

Upon inspection, the concrete bund was identified to be in a poor condition. This is due to the existing surface deteriorating after years of exposure. There are many locations on the bund that show a degree of damage and there is also evidence of chemical pooling. This seems to indicate that the fall is not functioning properly and, therefore, needs to be addressed and reinstated.

 

Chemco’s Solution

To ensure that the maximum life of the coating is achieved for our client, we reviewed the environment conditions, and we are specifying the Chemco International Glass Flake Filled Chem-tect™ 300 series coatings. These coatings have been chosen as they offer excellent chemical and corrosion protection.

 

Results

This coating project was completed on time, to budget and an inspection after 2 years has been recommended. Our Client was pleased with the result and the service.
