DCP Advises on Repair Work at Damaged Water Tower
When contractors were challenged with repairing the exterior of an Oxfordshire water tower in a state of disrepair - spalling concrete and exposed reinforcing bars - they immediately invited Don Construction Products' technical team to find a high performance and cost effective solution.
After a visit to Chipping Norton water tower, DCP recommended the application of its high performance polymer modified repair products for vertical applications: Cempatch Primer, Cempatch LW lightweight repair mortar and Repcoat elastomeric concrete coating. A technical representative also conducted additional visits to advise and oversee product application.
After Cempatch Primer was brush applied as both reinforcement protection and as a bonding agent, Cempatch LW repair mortar was hand / trowel applied to reprofile the damaged areas of the towers water container.
Two coats of Repcoat, an anti-carbonation, were then airless spray applied to both decorate and protect the cement, and because of Repcoats thixotropic composition, overspray was minimal.
