Coating System Offers Quick Return to Service in Damp Environments

Sponsored by

Sewer and pipeline rehabilitation specialist Ferro Monk Systems, part of the Clugston Group of companies, has recently completed a number of major projects with its Ultracoat 100% epoxy resin coating system.

The projects, which were at different locations across the UK, include Spalding and Canvey Island, were very different in nature and required the Ferro Monk team to work closely with both the contracted company and their client to understand each project's specific requirements.

Ultracoat is a 100% epoxy resin coating that can be spray applied to damp surfaces.

In keeping with current national environmental standards in the UK, Ultracoat is a "green" product - 100% epoxy with no volatile organic compounds. The spray applied coating has a high safety value and can be applied in confined spaces with no risk of combustion to hazardous materials. It is also resistant to algae and bacterial growth.

The coating can be sprayed onto damp surfaces and applied quickly. Its high bond strength means it can strengthen corroded or weakened structures and it can adhere to most surfaces, including concrete, steel, brick, fiberglass and clay. It can be used on tanks, chambers, manholes and culverts. Ferro Mon Systems,  www.ferromonk.co.uk.
