Deficiencies in surface preparation led to grit from grit blasting interfering with plant operations, which worsened severe corrosion problems and, despite regular reapplication of surface-tolerant epoxy to alleviate these issues, the challenges persist. This highlighted the urgent need to reevaluate surface preparation methods and investigate alternative corrosion prevention strategies to effectively address the ongoing corrosion concerns.

The Steelcoat™ Column Base Protection System was recommended. This system comprises of Denso Hi-Tack™ Primer to coat the cleaned substrate, Denso Profiling Mastic™ is used to fill any voids and to build up any angles required to create a smooth profile, a layer of Denso Hi-Tack™ Tape is then applied over the area followed by a layer of Denso D14 Scrim™ and a coat of Denso Basecoat™ and Denso™ Acrylic Topcoat is applied to complete the protective system.

The system requires only minimal surface preparation, specifically to St2 standards, while still offering a long-life expectancy. Additionally, it necessitates minimal yearly maintenance to ensure the integrity of the system remains intact. This combination of features underscores its efficiency and durability, providing a cost-effective solution with reduced downtime and maintenance requirements.
