Problem:Trains operating under the bridge leave severe diesel soot and carbon deposits behind, resulting in a corroding bridge structure.
Solution: Two coats of RUST GRIP ® applied by brush at 200 sq.ft.(18 sq. meters) per gallon, covered by ENAMO GRIP ® sprayed on using an airless sprayer at 250 sq.ft.(22 sq. meters) per gallon. Tip size was .016 (16/1000 inch) or 400 micron (0.4mm).
After 8+ years of protection from RUST GRIP ® and ENAMO GRIP ®, Mr. Ted Hopwood at the University of Kentucky, which does research for the Kentucky Dept. of Transportation, reported the coating was still doing an outstanding job and looked very good.
The small bright spots on the surface of the ENAMO GRIP ® was where a pipe was removed and the anchor holes were patched.
