Hello, I’m a project engineer working within the nuclear industry. Just an enquiry regarding this product that may be suitable for coating a mild steel ladder that is required to be used within a radioactive pond that also has acids and caustic within the water. Is Jotum Chemflake coating a product that would be suitable for these environments?

The Chemical parameter values for Sizewell A ponds over last 12 months were:
pH (at 25°C):       10.5 – 11
sodium hydroxide: 10–40mg/litre (ppm)
sodium carbonate: 40–100mg/litre
chloride & sulphate: < 0.1mg/litre
silica:                      < 0.2mg/litre

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

We would instead advise Tankguard Storage - 2 x 150 microns DFT applied to an Sa 2.5 abrasive blasted surface and when full cured would suit. Maximum liquid temperature would be +40 deg C.
