Project Summary

The client asked Metz’s South Australian Distributor, High Impact Solutions to specify, supply and install a suitable product to resist the combination of chemical and physical attack from an acidic, abrasive slurry. The movement of the large heavily laden truck tyres had caused severe damage which was affecting the safe operation of the batch plant.

Preparation was by robotic ultra high pressure hydro demolition, leaving the tyre pathway concrete clean and approximately 75mm deep.

Metz 10 epoxy concrete was then screeded into the two prepared wheel tracks and left 6mm from the required finished level.

Metz 33EN epoxy novolac with a special hard wearing, abrasion resistant aggregate Korodur® 0/4 was trowelled over the Metz 10. The resulting product utilised the exceptional corrosion resistance of Metz 33EN series, with the added abrasion resistance of the special Korodur® hard aggregate.

Metz 8 acid resistant silicone was then installed into saw cut movement joints as required. The work was undertaken during a very short shut down and was put back into service approx. 12 hours after completion.
