ICS have completed the challenging job of delivering the coating works at the Nash Road In-Vessel Composting Plant (IVC) for Costain.

The project was delivered on time and within the restraints of a tight programme.

Temporary encapsulation required, following which the substrates were blasted to a SA 2 ½ standard (ISO 8501-1) with 30/60 grade garnet expendable abrasive. Sherwin Williams Macropoxy C425V2 Epoxy Zinc Phosphate was applied to 100 micron min DFT to the blasted substrates.

ICS then applied Polyurea high performance coating material, completed to a high standard to the satisfaction of the client.

BASF elastocoat Polyurea final coat was applied to min 2.4 mm DFT, this presented quite a few challenges as the material is instantly reactive with no room for error on the applicators behalf!

ICS Operations Manager Richard Cole said  “It was a testing project for the team as we ventured into new territory with applying the Polyurea, but I think all the team took satisfaction from delivering a first class job for our client”
