Project Details

In 2008, Northumbrian Water completed a refurbishment of the 20 metre Ercebridge pipebridge near Darlington which carries potable water over a brook.

The contractors for the project were Advanced Engineering Solutions Ltd of Cramlington. Their craftsmanship and expertise at applying the Denso Steelcoat 400 and Denso Steelcoat 700 Systems demonstrates the fact that the systems can give an attractive finish as well as providing excellent corrosion prevention.

After wire brushing to remove previous coatings, the contractors applied Denso Hi-Tack Primer to all surfaces, Denso Profiling Mastic to the flange joints and then Denso Hi-Tack Tape followed by Denso Ultraseal Tape to both the pipe joints and barrels using 55% overlap.

Finally, two coats of Denso Acrylic Topcoat were applied over the Denso Ultraseal Tape. The anti-vandal guards were coated with the Steelcoat 700 System which comprises two coats of Denso ST Epoxy followed by a coat of Denso Weathershield to give it extra ultraviolet resistance.
