Ceramic Polymer's „winter coating“ for concrete substrates
- direct use without primer, single-layered, acid-proof. Easiest application at cold ambient temperatures down to -10°C
The system can easily be applied with conventional application tools. It is also highly resistant against chemicals and abrasion.This winter coating series is a novelty in the international market.
For a durable value preservation of concrete substrates the protection by a high-quality coating system is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, extreme concrete erosions occur due to chemical influences.
Recently, the concrete bottom area of a huge storage tank for liquid feed was coated with a special „winter system“ Proguard CN-1M W4.
An extreme chemical load occurs inside of the storage tank due to acidification (pH value 3!). Ceramic Polymer’s coating product Proguard CN-1M provides outstanding resistant properties. Thus, itis the ideal choice for the constant protection of the storage tank.
The „winter version W4“ with special hardener formulations facilitates the simple application at cold temperatures down to -10°C.
First of all, the substrate needs to be roughened and cleansed meticulously. The edges are pre-treated by brush; afterwards the coating is applied in a thin layer by a rubber doctor blade. The additional treatment with a suitable spiked roller is necessary to level overlaps and to obtain a homogeneous layer. Due to the low viscosity of the coating, all porosities of the concrete are filled in; an outstanding adhesion is thereby achieved. That signifies essential advantages in comparison to conventional multi-layer systems.
The direct application of the coating without a previous use of a primer facilitates a fast and cost-saving procedure without long shutdown times. The surface area of the storage tank (diameter of 25 meters) is approx. 490 m² and could be coated within one day.
