Thanks to the small size and low weight of the Mini Millers and Picote Brush Coating™ equipment, it was possible to lift them to the top floor using the small elevator of the building. From there they were manually carried to the roof from the stairs.
Two teams with two Picote Brush Coating™ systems were engaged in this project to enable completion as quickly as possible. The weather forecast announced heavy rain in the upcoming days and so the clock was ticking!
Day 1: One crew unblocked and cleared all 14 drains of debris and other material. They used Picote PVC Chains which are the most suitable for work in fragile pipes.
Day 2: All 14 drains were abraded using Mini Millers and Picote Smart Cutter™ to prepare the pipes for coating.
Day 3, 4 & 5: Picote Brush Coating™ begins! Teams applied 2-3 layers of epoxy resin in each drain. CCTV inspections followed each layer to ensure even coverage. The Dual Colour 100% Solids Epoxy made it simple to visually verify any spots that might have been missed. The Smart Mixer 2.0 ensured a simple and mess free application with minimal waste.
