Our partners at Corrocoat Benelux were recently commissioned to coat 300 square meters of new flue gas duct sections, with a diameter of 2200mm. The sections were intended for an energy from waste plant and required a coating which could protect the steel against flue gases. Corrocoat Benelux have a long standing relationship with the client, who specialise in fabrication of this type of equipment, and have worked with them on numerous projects over the last 10 years.
The project was carried out at the Corrocoat workshop, and took a team of 4 men, under 2 weeks to complete. The sections were blasted internally and externally to Sa2 ½. A surface profile of approximately 70 microns was achieved on the internals, which was then coated with Polyglass VEF using airless spray application. Polyglass VEF is a glass flake vinyl ester acrylic co-polymer, which has superior resistance to chemical attack and high temperature resistance. The externals were coated with 1 layer of Plasmet ZF which once again offered superior resistance in a chemical environment.
