Sticking across the UK

Posted: Monday 1st February 2010

Leading sewer and pipeline rehabilitation specialist Ferro Monk Systems, part of the renowned Clugston Group of companies, has recently completed a number of major projects with its revolutionary spray applied environmentally friendly 100% epoxy resin coating systemUltracoat.

The projects which were at different locations across the UK including; Spalding and Canvey Island were for clients that recognise the importance of maintaining Waste Water assets.

All the projects were very different in nature and required the Ferro Monk team to work closely with both the contracted company and their client, to understand each project’s specific requirements.

In keeping with current national environmental standards Ultracoat is a ‘green’ product - 100% epoxy with no volatile organic compounds. It has a high safety value and can be applied in confined spaces with no risk of combustion to hazardous materials. It is also resistant to algae and bacterial growth.

One of the major benefits of Ultracoat is that it can be sprayed onto damp surfaces and applied quickly. Its high bond strength means it can strengthen corroded or weakened structures and it can adhere to most surfaces, including concrete, steel, brick, fibreglass and clay. Most interestingly it can be used on tanks, chambers, manholes and culverts.

Wet chambers and surfaces are notoriously difficult to deal with, but Ultracoat is ideal for use in damp environments. It bonds well and systems can be back in use within as little as two hours after application. This was an essential factor in the success of all the projects.

Terry Warrie, project manager for Barhale Construction said, “It made our lives easier on a difficult project to use the expertise of Ferro Monk – a company that clearly understood our requirements and performed well within all aspects; safety, quality and standard of workmanship.” He added, “All Ferro Monk’s employees were professional to deal with and the projects, which had the potential to cause concern to us, went extremely well thanks to the approach and attitude of Ferro Monk.”

Danny Heffernan, managing director of Ferro Monk Systems said: ‘Ultracoat is proving to be an ideal application in today’s environmentally friendly conscious world.’
