The Solution

The steel tower was prepared by using a MBX Electric Bristle Blaster, which mimics the results of grit blasting, to a near white metal finish, or a NACE Grade Two.

One coat of RESICHEM 506 ALUPRIME, an epoxy high solids steel protection system, was applied to the severely corroded areas.

Then, two coats of RESICHEM 555 Resinox was applied. Although it is possible to apply heavier film builds with a spray or brush, two coats, with drying time, is recommended to ensure the minimum DFT of 350 microns (14 mils) is achieved to give the long-lasting results desired RESICHEM 555 Resinox , available in grey or white, is a water based, high build acrylic encapsulation system with optimum level of UV resistance to offer an anti-corrosive protection to the steel structure.
