Application: WPA-Wall Problem Areas (WPA)
Substrate: Concrete and MetalCustomer Location: Wind Farm, West Texas, USA
Application Date: Summer 2016Products:
3111 (Flexible Membrane)
3911 (PSC Surface Conditioner)
Problem: Rain water and moisture seeps into the ground and into the wind turbine structure through the base around the tower structure. This over time affects the concrete base and propagates cracks and corrosion at the base of the tower. In this case the current coating failed due to UV degredation leading to delamination from the concrete surface.
1. The old coating that failed, yellowing and peeling from the concrete surface.
2. The application area being outlined.
3. Application of Belzona 3111 underway.
4. Application completed and tower base sealed with Belzona 3111.
