ComboWear FC (Fast Cure)
These pneumatic conveying pipe elbows would receive extreme abrasive wear from processing coal. The wear was so severe that replacement was required every 2 months.
Repair area was sandblasted to a SSPC-SP5 white metal finish. Surface area was then chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. Brushable Ceramic was applied to a thickness of 10 mils, acting as a primer for Combowear. Following a partial cure of Brushable Ceramic, (2 hours), Combo Wear FC was applied to a thickness of 1/2". Combo Wear FC provided a long lasting abrasion resistant protective lining to the elbow. Combo Wear FC also provided a functional cure in only 90 minutes, reducing the high cost of downtime.
