Denso Steelcoat Protects Scottish Water Pipes

Posted: Monday 23rd July 2018

The Denso Steelcoat 100-400 System has been used to protect two water pipes below a footbridge which crosses a small stream at Scottish Water's Killylour Water treatment Works, in Dumfries & Galloway.

The Denso Steelcoat 100-400 System comprises Denso Hi-Tack Primer, Denso Profiling Mastic, Denso Hi-Tack Tape, Denso Ultraseal RT Tape and Denso Acrylic topcoat. The system provides an excellent surface coating solution for exposed steelwork, particularly in areas that are faced with constant damp or humid conditions.

Due to the complexity of the structure and the small gaps between the pipes and supporting steel beams, both the Hi-Tack Tape and Ultraseal Tape had to be applied by a mixture of techniques.

This involved weatherboard methods at the joints and spiral and cigarette wrapping of the barrel lengths. On some sections the rolls of tape were partially decanted onto empty cores to allow spiral wrapping where possible.

The main contractor for this project was George Leslie Ltd. Sub-contractor was HySpec Services Ltd.
