The new head office and distribution centre for Bradite, the specialist coatings manufacturer, is now being protected by using one of the company’s most successful products.
Steel girders in the 3000 sq metre building just outside Manchester have been coated in the firm’s EP92 Surface Tolerant Primer.
“The product is ideal for protecting new structural steel or blasted steel preventing rust developing,” says Bradite National Sales Manager James Burton. “It is also very effective on spot rusting and can be used over lightly rusted ferrous metals. It’s the ideal product when thorough blast cleaning may not be feasible or practical”.
The product is a high performance, two-pack epoxy solvent-based coating with a surface drying time of just two hours. Recommended for use as part of paint system or internally as a two-coat application, it can be applied in temperatures of 0°C and above but should be 3°C above dew point. Once mixed it has a pot life of up to 8 hours and can be applied by brush, roller or spray.
Bradite coatings, including floor paints, metal and machinery paints, pre-treatments and primers, additives and thinners, and a full range of specialist products are manufactured at the company’s site in Gwynedd, North West Wales. Office administration, storage and distribution are now handled at the new Manchester facility.
