UMC was called upon to carry out the coating of a severely deteriorated industrial waste structure using 100% solids epoxy: approximately 1,600 SF. UMC's crew mobilized and removed four slide gates and their associated assemblies, handrails, and catwalks, in order to access the interior of the concrete structure. After masking the remaining steel surfaces and bolts, we applied a monolithic coating of epoxy to the complete interior of the structure in order to protect the surface from corrosion caused by wastewater, and to ensure the longevity of the structure. After the coating was fully cured, our crew replaced the slide gates, handrails, and catwalks. One of the challenges associated with this project was that flow had to be diverted by using plugs on 5 different pipes ranging from 24” to 36”. UMC was able to complete all work safely, on budget, and on schedule.
