Bulkheads

Problem

In the past, the customer was having the bulkheads processed with only a degrease and single coat of black speed enamel. While the end result looked good initially, it did not take long for rust to develop on the sharp edges of the expanded metal grating that made up the panel.

Solution

Aegis proposed a blast to SSPC-SP6 (Commercial Blast) and a two coat system using an epoxy primer and exterior grade polyester top coat. The blasting effectively removed the scale and rust present on the steel, and the epoxy provided superior edge coverage which fully enveloped the expanded metal.

Result

The client informed us that the warranty claims on this component has dropped significantly and the units that sit in the yard look new once they are finally installed on the customers vehicles.
