Washdown and industrial roof re-paint in Rugby

Industrial Roofing Washdown And Re-Paint In Rugby - IRM Roofing

Industrial Roofing in Walsall carried out various works including industrial roof washdown, rooflight replacement, giromax cut edge corrosion and industrial roofing re-paint, on behalf of Sandvik Saxon in Rugby.

We were initially contracted to undertake an industrial roof wash down, together with rooflight replacement and giromax cut edge corrosion. The end of lease dilapidation work was to be completed in preparation to offer a new tenant a ten year lease.

After the industrial roof wash down was completed (a two week job) it became apparent that the entire roof plastisol coating was degraded so much that the roof then needed re-coating with paint. A scope was put forward to carry the work out using “Metal Kote” - which is a Acrypol product - using our state of the art Graco 7900 High Pressure Ailess Sprayer.

Because the re-paint was not planned, budget was a major consideration. The Metal Kote was to be applied quickly through spraying, and is a one coat solution to failing roof coatings (Acrypol has different applications for various roof types). A slightly bigger team was dispatched from our base Industrial Roofing in Walsall to carry out the industrial roofing works in Rugby.

Below are photos from all stages of the project which included the washdown, rooflight replacement, giromax cut edge corrosion and industrial roofing re-paint in Rugby.

Giromax not compatible with the Metal Kote

The silicon based Giromax was not compatible with the Metal Kote, so we had to be careful not to overspray the Giromax product. We used masking profile plates to allow us to spray up to the giromax work.

Metal Kote is a one coat application

The Metal Kote is a one coat application and carries a 10 year guarantee.
