LAMINATED COATING SYSTEMS
These linings are intended for the protection of either concrete or steel
and are reinforced with membranes such as woven glass cloth, chopped
strand mat, or synthetic cloth.
The use of the reinforcement helps to modify the expansion and
contraction characteristics of the lining to more closely match that of the
substrate. This allows the lining to operate at elevated temperatures and
under fluctuating temperature conditions. It also reinforces the lining so that
it can withstand physical abuse and impact damage as well as minor substrate
integrity failures. eg. ‘hairline’ cracks in concrete.
Carbon fillers are used when the lining is to be exposed to Hydrofluoric
Acid, caustic etc.
