Through a relationship with a local concrete contractor, UMC was made aware of some concrete corrosion at one of Wichita's processing facilities. The damage was described as chemical corrosion of concrete containment walls around two chemical tanks. Once a site visit was conducted it was determined that 100% solids epoxy and a mortar build-back material would be an adequate solution. The mortar was used to build-back the profile of the concrete walls where the corrosion was the most severe. With the possibility of more exposure to chemicals, 100% solids epoxy was used to topcoat all repaired surfaced.
