Blouberg Heights - Dekro Paints

Blouberg Heights

Blouberg Heights is literally a stone throw away from the ocean and is located in one of the harshest environments on the Cape Town coast. In the summer the South Eastern winds sandblasts the perimeter fencing and in winter  salt spray from the North Western cold fronts give it an all round hammering.

Dekro Paints provided a redecoration specification similar to what are used on the top side of jack-up rigs and fishing vessels.

The galvanising was cleaned using Dekster 711 Holdtight 102 followed by a four coat system in excess of 350µ.

1st coat  Umeguard SX   116µ
2nd stripe coat  Tuffcoat  150µ
3rd/4th coat  Unymarine  50µ

Using marine and industrial coatings as part of corrosion prevention on coastal areas will not only prolong the life expectancy  of  metal substrates but also  prolong the maintenance cycle saving costs over the long run.
