Burm Buildup for Containment Area

Burm Buildup for Containment Area

The Problem

The EPA was about to fine this automotive engine manufacturer for the condition of their secondary containment. 

One of the issues was that if this tank leaked, the flow of this containment area was going to be in the wrong direction.

The Substrate


The Solution

As you can see, we repaired many cracks, but also added burms to make the flow go in the proper direction. The product used here was Resichem 576 Quartz Screed.

After repairing the concrete and adding the burms, Unconventional Solutions sealed the area with Resichem 503 SPEP.

USI then coated the yellow striping with the USI Fast Cure Line Striping (yellow)
