Acid corrosion can be a catastrophic type of failure. Prior to the installation of high-performance acid-resistant systems, DGC AFRICA will ensure that the substrate is sufficiently prepared and cleaned, especially if there was previous exposure to acids; such incidents leave acid salt deposits on the substrate.
DGC AFRICA will also undertake any concrete rehabilitation work to ensure that any damaged or spalled concrete is structurally sound prior to any acid proofing installations.
Depending on the specific requirements dictated by the site; such as chemical concentrations, temperature and exposure, DGC AFRICA will specify and install either a high performance chemical resistant liquid applied glass flake reinforced epoxy, vinyl ester, or polyester system, or acid resistant bricks and mortar.
