Gutter for collecting spills in a truck unloading area for Caustic soda and Hydrochloric acid.
Application was carried out in accordance with modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflets TCC-5 and FPA-10. A new gutter made of steel was coated in workshop with Belzona® 4311 on the inside and 1 layer of Belzona® 4911 + aggregate on the outside. On site the gutter was cleaned and prepared, then the new steel gutter was grouted into place using Belzona® 4151 mixed with sand to seal between the concrete and the steel gutter.
The customer needed the unloading area back in service as quickly as possible. As the steel gutter was coated and inspected at the workshop, downtime was saved, and only 3 days were required to install the new gutter.
