Park Leisure Centre Footbridge
On this project we were faced with a perforated steel decking where all sign of the previous coating had worn away and steel rails showed signs of corrosion and disrepair.
In order to remove any sign of previous coating and to provide a key we scarified the surface of the bridge before applying an epoxy anti-corrosive primer ready for the application of the top coat. The top coat consisted of a four-component, self-levelling, antiskid epoxy floor coating which was mixed, poured and trowelled to the surface area then immediately sprinkled with a medium sized aggregate.
• Ultimate solution for high-abrasion flooring requirements
• Excellent dry and wet antiskid properties
• Excellent abrasion resistance
• Ideal for heavy traffic floors
Prior to start on site localised repairs were carried out to replace sections of badly corroded steel. To prepare the existing steel and to remove any sign of rust and flaking paint we used mechanical hand grinders to expose sound material. The first coats consisted of a two-component, high build, epoxy primer/coating to 125 DFT which is a marine grade primer with an excellent corrosion resistance. We then applied a two-component, high solids high-build polyurethane finish to 100 DFT.
• Excellent resistance to atmospheric exposure conditions
• Good colour-gloss retention
• Cures at temperatures to -5 degrees Celsius
• Resistance to splash from mild chemicals
