A school swimming pool has been given a new lease of life, thanks to specialist coatings company Bradite.
Ipswich School now has a refreshed pool thanks to the Bradite CC24 chlorinated rubber eggshell finish coating.
A specialist masonry blasting company removed the dilapidated existing rubberised surface, providing a clean concrete substrate for the Bradite product to be applied.
Norwich-based Cladspray Solutions then primed the pool surfaces using a 20% thinned coat of CC24. This was followed by two undiluted coats of the same product, supplied in a colour specified by the client.
“The CC24 was selected because it is designed for use in a swimming pool, its ease of application and our confidence in the product after having used it on previous projects,” said Cladspray Solutions Technical Sales Director Dan Ruegg.
He added: “We also had a specification written by James Burton of Bradite Paints which was followed throughout the project. The result is a fantastic swimming pool refurbishment.”
The chlorinated rubber coating is surface dry in just 30 minutes and re-coatable after eight hours. It is anti-corrosive, offers excellent chemical resistance and is suitable for use on concrete, porous mineral and suitably prepared ferrous and non-ferrous surfaces. It can be applied by brush or roller, or conventional air or airless spray.
