ABandP where contracted by Brambles Industrial Services to undertake the remediation of two of the Conveyor belt towers in the Norke Skog Paper mill Log Yard after a fire broke out and extensively damaged the protective coatings on the structural steel of the conveyor towers. We mobilized to site and over a six month period we utilized mist blast technology (Water is injected into the blast medium to reduce dust) to remove the damaged paint and any smoke affected areas then pressure washed each section and then applied primer coat over the freshly blasted steel. We could only blast small sections to ensure all that was blasted daily had to be pressure washed to remove contaminates and then painted too prevent further corrosion We subsequently applied an intermediate coat of paint and a top coat of a polyurethane paint to provide the required level of anticorrosion protection as per out clients requests.
ABandP won a contract to remove an existing Non-slip coating that had de-laminated after a short period of time. This project involved removal of the existing coating, preparation of the bridge deck to allow adhesion of a new coating and the application of a nonslip coating system. The system we applied comprised of a 4 coat paint system with aluminum oxide broadcast on to the surface in between coats 2 and 3 to provide the non-slip element to the coating system. The result was a nonslip surface that was tested and well and truly passed the criteria for Australian standards.
ABandP won the contract to refurbish the surface of the collegiate swimming pool as part of a major upgrade to the facilities within the pool precinct. The pool was fully encapsulated to reduce the amount of dust and contaminates being released into the general environment while being blasted. The process to remove the existing coating was as follows we removed the rubber based paint system (8 coats) from the sided and the floor of the pool. We utilized an abrasive blast comprising of Garnet and compressed air to remove the coating to provide the best possible surface for the new paint system to adhere to. We then applied a multi coat paint again a rubber based product and then re-applied the directional lines and line marking on the walls and floor of the pool
