Concrete protection for the most challenging environments; acids, chemicals, high temperatures, mechanical wear.
Chesterton's advanced composite materials handle most applications.
Concrete floor under plan wire at Kokeri (Sulfite process). Constant run-off of chemicals (hot, weak sulfuric acid from SO2 vapor) destroys the protection on the floor after a short time and eventually also the concrete.
Handling of heavy equipment, for example, in the case of roller changing also results in large mechanical stresses on the concrete floor.
Fuglesangs has solved this type of challenge with Chesterton's advanced composite materials. In this case, Chesterton ARC 791 is a quartz-reinforced thick-film composite that also provides very good mechanical strength.
