Shoreham Power Station: High Temperature Coating
- The operating temperature was around 150°C.
- Manual removing of surface rust was required prior to coating.
- Time limits were imposed during which the work could be carried out.
- We were required to source a fast drying paint material with anti-corrosion properties that could withstand high temperatures.
We began the project by abrading the surface to remove existing contamination and to create a mechanical key. The surfaces were then primed and coated with specialist anti-corrosion high temperature tolerant coating, which were left to cure. The materials used were capable of withstanding dry temperatures up to 500°C.
