Inchichore Works are the headquarters for Mechanical Engineering and Rolling Stock maintenance for Irish Rail. Established in 1844, it is the largest engineering complex of its kind in Ireland with a site area of 73 acres. The facility is responsible for the overhaul and repair of locomotives, manufacturing of rolling stock, spraying and washing.
Main Problem and Requirements
The main engineering and maintenance shed had oil contaminated slabs with no effective slip resistance and could not be cleaned to the required standards. An anti-slip coating suitable for heavy duty use, exposure to oil contamination and frequent high pressure cleaning was required. Due to the existing oil contamination and the absence of an effective damp-proof membrane, Remmers Epoxy MT100 primer was applied to ensure adequate adhesion. Remmers Epoxyflex Coating PH, incorporating a quartz profile, was chosen as a final coating.
Epoxyflex Coating PH is a fast cure, solvent free coating system with the flexibility for increased impact resistance.
