This secondary containment area required repairs to cracks caused by thermal cycling and erosion. The erosion was accelerated by the occasional spilling or leaking of beach from the storage tanks.
Complete floor and wall surfaces were first pressure washed to remove contaminates. Floor and wall areas were then etched using Devcon's B-4 Citrus Acid Etch. All cracks were repaired and sealed with Devcon's Floor Patch Fast Cure, (90 minute functional cure). Following a 1 hour partial cure of Floor Patch Fast Cure, Concrete Primer was applied to a thickness of 8 mils. Following a partial cure, (4 hours), a final coat of Epoxy Coat 7000AR (Acid Resistant) was applied to a thickness of 16 mils. Devcon's Epoxy Coat 7000AR withstands aggressive chemical operating environments.
