Steel Supports & Catwalk

Thermal Plastic Coating


Restore structural strength and add protective coating to a catwalk and steel pipe bridge support that is above several acid storage tanks

Composite Solution:

A field applied polyethylene coating was installed using a proprietary flame applicator that melts a powder form of the material onto the surface creating a pin-hole free, completely acid resistant protective coating.

The process required surface prep: abrasive blast to remove corrosion and previous coatings, and reinforcement with carbon fiber where steel loss was sufficient to require structural reinforcement.


Extremely durable acid resistant coating developed specifically for steel and concrete surfaces. Due to the method of application, the process is an instant cure, thus allowing the systems repaired to be back in service immediately.
