GVRD WASTE INCINERATOR
Vancouver

1999
RUST GRIP ® primer with a SUPERTHERM ® base and top coated with ENAMO GRIP ® 

The blast furnace doors were coated with SUPERTHERM ® to bring the surface temperature down, from 150°C to 70°C via backside conduction, to meet code for surfaces exposed to human contact. This required 28mils DFT of SUPERTHERM ® applied in multiple coats. Today we would use HSC COATING® which had not yet been developed and accomplish the same thickness in a couple of coats. The air leaks were caulked with HPC COATING® which is still in place today.

These containment tanks located at the GVRD Waste Incinerator process acidic ash. In 1999 they were coated inside and out with a primer coat of RUST GRIP ®, a base coat of SUPERTHERM ® and a topcoat of ENAMO GRIP ®. In 2002 the tanks were checked for structural integrity. The uncoated tanks were discarded and replaced. The coated tanks were touched up and returned to service.
