At Corrocoat we are experts at protecting structural steel. Moving on from standard multicoat epoxy coatings, we have developed Zipcoat, a superior one-coat polyester system that proves more cost-effective and time-saving for our customers.
Because Zipcoat is quick to apply, extra-durable and offers greater efficiency in structural steel protection, it’s a product which has been approved by Network Rail and the Highways Agency. In fact, they’ve used it extensively to coat a wide range of bridges, jetties and piling throughout Britain.
As the plant was active during the project, all surface preparation was performed with grinders and needle guns to achieve an SSPC SP3 preparation.
Some of the structural components we have treated include:
- Structural steelwork
- Pipe bridges
- Rail bridges
