One of the Largest U.S. Mass Transit Operators Uses ENESEAL to Stop Leaks into 30 Year Old Train Cars. Existing methods to stop water leaking into the train from roof seams was not working. A complete overhaul of the roofs was being considered.
The surface was prepared by high pressure washing and the seams were sealed with a silicone caulk. ENESEAL CR was applied as a surface primer followed by two coats of ENESEAL HR.
The transit operator was so pleased with the results, 330 cars were scheduled to be repaired. Over 100 have been successfully repaired to-date.
ENESEAL CR is a ‘surface tolerant’ coating system that does not require abrasive blasting. It exhibits excellent adhesion to all types of ferrous metal as well as galvanized surfaces. Mechanical wire brushing, grinding or high pressure water blasting is typically acceptable to achieve good adhesion.
ENESEAL HR is a single component, water based, liquid ceramic-filled membrane which cures to a durable, seamless, flexible “skin” that refracts and reflects heat. For more information about ENESEAL HR please visit: ENESEAL HR
