Long Term Corrosion Protection
The photograph shows a Fylde Water Board Tower at Barnacre, near Garstang, Lancs. The tower was gritblasted to BS 4232, and then zinc sprayed to 175 microns (0.007”) followed by one coat of inhibitive sealer to Zn7/a.
Fylde Water Board has adopted this Metallisation Protective System as their standard anti-corrosive treatment as it has proved over many years to be the optimum for efficiency, economy and maintenance free operation.
