0321- Spanish Navy protects cargo deck with CHEMCLAD SC non-skid safety system

Industry: Marine
Problem: Corrosion / Erosion
Project Goal: To repair and protect the hangar floor on this Spanish Naval vessel from corrosion
Location: Spain
Status: Completed
Products Used: CHEMCLAD SC
Project Description

The hangar floor on this Spanish Naval vessel, used to transport tanks and other heavy vehicles, had been suffering from corrosion as a result of the failure of a conventional paint system. 

Due to the scope of the project (1,000 square meters / almost 11,000 square feet), the ship’s engineers contacted the local ENECON Field Engineering Specialist to help find a cost effective and reliable solution.

The ENECON Specialist recommended that a complete CHEMCLAD SC System, incorporating aluminum oxide aggregate to provide slip-resistant safety surfacing, be applied to protect this floor from further corrosion damage.

The first coat of CHEMCLAD SC was rolled out. To provide slip-resistance, aluminum oxide aggregate was broadcast and backrolled into the CHEMCLAD SC as it was applied.

A final topcoat of CHEMCLAD SC was then applied - giving the Navy a slip resistant, easy to clean surface that would resist damage from gasoline, oil and hydraulic fluid while protecting the deck from corrosion for many years to come.
