The nursing home Armonea Gravenkasteel located in Sint-Amands had suffered from water infiltration in the cellars of their buildings. Due to the water infiltration and cracks in the walls of the basement the beams began to rust. To counteract this course, Armonea decided to fully coat the HEB support beams to prevent any form of corrosion and osmosis.
K&C DIVING proposed a plan using EasyQote Basecoat. This visco-elastic Wrappingband belongs to the Seal For Life products range (STOPAQ) and provides an innovative look at coatings.
The EasyQote basecoat is very similar to the STOPAQ Wrappingband but was specially developed for structural steel.
The HEB beams had to be completely cleaned before the coating process could start. This means that all loose rust and biological growth had to be removed to ensure the flowing capabilities of the products. This only took several hours.
After the surface cleaning, our employees began with the coating process.
The beams were heated by means of a burner to ensure proper adhesion of the EasyQote Basecoat Wrappingband to the steel. Once a beam had been heated to about 35 degrees, an employee began to cover the beam with EasyQote Basecoat. This process was repeated for all beams.
Due to the ease of use of the Wrappingbands, K&C DIVING was able to coat +15 beams over a 2 day period.
