To repair and protect the hangar floor on this Spanish Naval vessel from corrosion
- Products Used CHEMCLAD SC
- Status Completed
The hangar floor on this Spanish Naval vessel, used to transport tanks and other heavy vehicles, had been suffering from corrosion as a result of the failure of a conventional paint system.
Due to the scope of the project (1,000 square meters / almost 11,000 square feet), the ship’s engineers contacted the local ENECON Field Engineering Specialist to help find a cost effective and reliable solution.
The ENECON Specialist recommended that a complete CHEMCLAD SC System, incorporating aluminum oxide aggregate to provide slip-resistant safety surfacing, be applied to protect this floor from further corrosion damage.
The first coat of CHEMCLAD SC was rolled out. To provide slip-resistance, aluminum oxide aggregate was broadcast and backrolled into the CHEMCLAD SC as it was applied.
A final topcoat of CHEMCLAD SC was then applied – giving the Navy a slip resistant, easy to clean surface that would resist damage from gasoline, oil and hydraulic fluid while protecting the deck from corrosion for many years to come.
