Lining Services were asked to fibreglass line a catchment channel under some machinery on a site in Manchester.

The concrete channel had degraded and pitted due to acid attack over the previous years.

 

The fibreglass lining had to be resistant to Hydrochloric acid and Sodium Hydroxide, so a vinyl ester resin was specified.

 

Prior to the fibreglass lining, the client had the channel cleaned and rendered by a local tradesman.

 

These photographs show the completed job once the fibreglass had been applied.

 

Now, the concrete substrate is fully sealed and the lining is resistant to the acids being used so the client has complete peace of mind.

Our standard guarantee of 10 years was given.
