1 Minute™ Epoxy
This agitator would receive extreme corrosion and pitting from mixing a solution of 35% Hydrolchloric Acid. Previous method was to replace agitator when worn. Replacement cost for the agitator was estimated at $3K.
The complete agitator was sandblasted to a SSPC-SP5 white metal finish. All repair and coating areas were chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. Ceramic Repair was mixed and applied to all corroded and cavitated areas deeper than 1/8". Following a partial cure, (4 hours), Brushable Ceramic Blue was applied to a thickness of 30 mils. Following a partial cure, (4 hours), a second coat of Brushable Ceramic Red was applied, again to a thickness of 30 mils. Brushable Ceramic encapsulated the repair areas and provided a long lasting, smooth chemical resistant coating. Devcon's repair cost was $500.
