Steel Mill Elevator Shaft

Steel Mill Elevator Shaft

The Problem

A steel mill in Michigan was experiencing heavy corrosion issues in the elevator shaft of one of their blast furnaces.

The steel mill wanted the product to be easy to use with quick overcoat capabilities, and the ability to apply in cool temperatures (41ºF) and high humidity levels.

The Substrate


The Solution

The elevator shaft was coated with RESICHEM 555 Resinox. RESICHEM 555 Resinox is a single-component, water-based, anti-corrosive acrylic coating that offers superior elastomeric properties. It is simple, easy to use, and requires minimal time between applications.  

The elevator shaft was wire brush prepped with a surface profile to provide excellent adhesion.  One coat of RESICHEM 555 Resinox was applied, by brush, to a DFT of 14 mils.

The elevator shaft has been given a facelift and superior corrosion protection.  The steel mill chose RESICHEM 555 Resinox for its ease of use and its superior performance as both a maintenance coating and a labor cost savings.
