Scope Of Work
• Grit blasted to ISO 8501-1 cleanliness
standard SA 21/2.
• Plasmet T applied with 100mm wide glass
• Post machine to final drum sizes.
Plasmet T is a high solids epoxy coating loaded with Silicon Carbide to provide added abrasion resistance. Plasmet T, when coupled with glass fiber reinforcing, as in this application, builds strength and thickness to these worn sludge rollers. The specification of these drums also utilized Plasmet T’s ability to be machined and ground to a very smooth finish.
Designed primarily as a cosmetic top coat for Plasmet R and WR, Plasmet T provides excellent chemical resistance and a good gloss appearance. Using coating as a method of refurbishment has proved cost and time effective on these sludge rollers. Traditional methods of welding and machining have a turnaround time of weeks, and replacement is expensive. Corrocoat’s solution can be turned around in days and is around half the cost of a new roller.
An additional benefit with the refurbishment option is that, with the enhanced properties of Plasmet T, the life of the component will now be greater than that of a new roller – adding to the cost benefits of using Corrocoat coating systems.
