The Process:

First the area on and around the corrosion is cleaned by the specialist team. Specific equipment suited to the surface and dirt is used including the use of a variety of spray nozzles to clean effectively and thoroughly.

When dry, the edge to be repaired will be grinded by a hand held grinder. This is to remove loose particles and leave smooth debris free edge to apply the repair coating.

Cut edge corrosion treatment

A primer coat is then applied by brush as a base layer to cover and exposed surface.

Once the primer has  dried a layer of fibre tape is applied from a roll by removing the backing and laying smoothly on the edge providing a reinforced seal.

Then the top coat is applied by brush to cover the tape and finish the watertight seal of the cut edge.

If required the area can be re-sprayed but this is not always required as the joints are not normally unsightly but in most cases blend into the existing area.
