PROJECT SUMMARY

The plastic liner in this u-drain had collapsed due to improper installation. The liner didn’t adhere to the concrete well, resulting in acid leaking in behind the liner and deteriorating the concrete.

We first used a water and caustic combination to clean out the sludge behind the liner. We then gave the liner itself a good cleaning.

Next, using wood formwork and a welded angle iron to hold the liner in place, we poured Blome CP-300 High Flow Vinyl Ester Polymer concrete behind the liner.

We finished by painting the liner with TL-220 Vinyl Ester.
