CORROSION CONTROL

Parts of the Birds Eye factory in Lowestoft, Suffolk; were suffering badly from rust and showing signs of extensive corrosion. We won the tender to carry out the corrosion control and protective coating of the ‘Pipe bridge’. This large industrial steel framework, protects and supports the main services that are vital to keep the factory running. Over 100 linear meters of steel housing for power lines, gas pipes, water supply pipes, ammonia pipes and more.

INDUSTRIAL RUST REPAIR

The ‘Pipe bridge’ had extensive corrosion across all areas of the steel. All the rust needed to be removed and the entire structure painted with a protective coating. The protective coating system had to tolerate the extreme weather and conditions next to the sea.

MINIMISED DISRUPTION

The Birdseye factory is a 24/7 working environment. The ‘Pipe bridge’ had to be worked on in three separate stages, in order to minimise any disruption. Each phase was scaffolded to enable access to all areas.

PROTECTIVE COATING

Working closely with our preferred specialist coating manufacturer Rustoleum, a bespoke specification was compiled for the work.

ON SITE BLASTING

To remove the corrosion, we have to use non-sparking methods to prevent any kind of fire hazards or risks of explosion. Wet grit blasting proved the best way for us to do this. The on site wet grit blasters removed all signs of rust and returned the ‘Pipe bridge’ back to clean, bright steel.

RUST REPAIR

Once the preparation had been completed, our specialist on site painting team began spot priming all blasted areas with the Rustoleum 9169 Epoxy Rust Primer.

EPOXY COATING

Our team then applied a high build, high performance, Rustoleum 9100 epoxy coating system to give a high build mid-coat with additional anti-corrosive protection. The coating system was then finished with the Rustoleum 9200 twin pack polyurethane topcoat. This topcoat has exceptionally high impact and abrasion resistance, as well as excellent, long lasting colour and sheen retention.

PROTECTION FOR YEARS TO COME

The project has now been successfully completed and the end product is a long lasting, anti-corrosive coating system which will last Birdseye for years to come.

“Cladspray Solutions applied a 3 coat paint system to the pipe bridge working collaboratively with other trades who where repairing the steel work as part of this large scale project.

I find Tom and Dan to be very competitive in their pricing, always very professional in their approach and deliver a high quality, and long lasting finish.

I have since used Cladspray Solutions for other projects on site and would highly recommend them.”
