Nufins

Epoxy Resin Mortars and Screeds

Project: A838 Kyle of Tongue Bridge, Scotland

Contractor:Concrete Repairs Limited

A838

Scope: Major concrete repair and cathodic protection works to renovate the bridge was undertaken for Highland Council by CRL during a £1.2 million project in summer 2011. The 40 year old bridge is an 18 span structure over the Tongue estuary on the road between Thurso and Durness in North Sutherland. A critical part of the project was the spray-applied bridge deck waterproofing system. In order to minimise the time required for installation, the contractor proposed a temporary full closure of the bridge during good weather. Approximately 700kg of Epicon FS Mortar (fast setting epoxy resin) was used for bridge deck patching prior to waterproofing.

 

Project: Kingston Town, Carlisle

Client:Carlisle City Council

Scope: Carlisle City Council contacted Nufins regarding problems with radius kerb edging at the entrance to an industrial estate in the city. The existing kerbs were being pushed over by wagons when navigating the turn. Having previously supplied Epikerb (epoxy resin bedding mortar) for the kerb edging on sections of the new cycle route on London Road in 1998, with Carlisle City Engineer Norrie Westbrook, the same material was used at Kingstown and the new kerb edging instalment proved successful.

Contractor:Lumsdon and Carroll Construction

Scope: During the bridge deck refurbishment of this River Tyne crossing the Autolink maintenance operator required that the inspection chambers should be installed with a flexibilised bedding and haunching mortar. Epiflex was specified for the application and shims were cast off site with Epiflex so that the installation was completed with a homogenous material. Bauxite grit was applied to the surface to provide an anti-slip finish.

 

Project: Alcan Smelter, Lynmouth

Client: P.A Gasgcoigne Limited 

Almouth

Scope: A robust material was required to fill the badly spalled movement joint at the entrance to the Potrooms at the Alcan Smelter in Lynemouth. Epicon ARG was installed in February 2010 to resist loading by 30-40 tonne forklifts with minimum shutdown time. The product is a rapid setting, flexibilised, pour-applied gap and joint-filling epoxy resin that was originally designed for repairs to asphalt and concrete on airfield runways to allow aircraft to land after 4 - 6 hours in low winter temperatures.
