0164- Thermoelectric Power Plant Protects Secondary Containment Areas

Industry: Power
Problem: Chemical Attack
Project Goal: Concrete protection
Location: Chile
Status: Completed
Products Used: DuraQuartz used for Rebuilt, DuraFill used for Rebuilt, CHEMCLAD XC used for Protection, CHEMCLAD SC used for Protection
Project Description

Two separate secondary containment areas were severely deteriorated after years of exposure to sulfuric acid and sodium hypochlorite.

The ENECON Chile team removed all contaminated concrete as well as old, failed coatings. Broken and cracked concrete areas were repaired and rebuilt with ENECRETE DuraQuartz and ENECRETE DuraFill.

Any areas needing repairing were rebuilt with DuraQuartz before final coat.


The entire surface of the secondary containment areas were then coated with two coats of CHEMCLAD XC and CHEMCLAD SC (depending on the chemical exposure), providing superior chemical attack protection from these extreme conditions for years to come.


ENECRETE DuraQuartz is a three component, 100% solids, concrete repair compound specifically formulated and precisely engineered to provide solutions to even the most difficult concrete repair and protection problems. For more information about ENECRETE DuraQuartz please visit: ENECRETE DuraQuartz


DuraFill is not only for concrete; it will also bond to marble, slate, stone, brick, terrazzo, tiles, most metals, wood…even rigid plastics and glass! For more information on DuraFill please visit: ENECRETE DuraFill

CHEMCLAD XC is a two component, 100% solids, ultra high performance, chemical resistant coating that provides unrivaled protection in some of the toughest chemical environments. For more information on CHEMCLAD XC please visit: CHEMCLAD XC

CHEMCLAD SC – a two component, 100% solids, polymer system used for creating an outstanding corrosion and chemical resistant, protective coating on all types of equipment and structures.For more information on CHEMCLAD SC please visit: CHEMCLAD SC
