plastocor® Offers Solution to Working in Confined Spaces amid Covid-19

Applying coatings systems in confined spaces can become problematic due to Covid-19 regulations. However, at plastocor-international SA, we have found a fully integrated solution to solve this issue.

plastocor® high-performance coatings for water boxes are safe to use in confined spaces, involving zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). plastocor® high-performance coating systems are designed for flexibility, erosion-corrosion resistance, high impact and wear.

Exposed to galvanic corrosion and erosion, the walls and floors of water boxes can be severely damaged and experience major deterioration in equipment efficiency, leading to an overall reduction in a unit’s performance. Our 100% solids non-solvent, epoxy coating systems are specifically developed to endure the extreme conditions of the condenser and cooling water cycle equipment and are suitable to apply on various substrates, for example, carbon steel or cast iron water boxes.

We understand the importance of adopting an integrated approach when it comes to improving productivity and long-term protection of cooling water cycle equipment and apply the same approach to working in the water box while adhering to Covid-19 regulations.

As Stéphane Randu, General Manager at INGCOAT Sarl, noted, the unique nature of plastocor® technology solutions lies in the fact that they provide a full solution to improving efficiency and productivity of cooling water cycle equipment.

Given our experience in protecting water boxes and Covid-19 regulations regarding social distancing, at plastocor®, we adopted a new approach to continue working safely in not only confined spaces as necessary by the water box environment, where our workers use protective masks, but also for other work-related situations, which require a nose and mouth cover to be worn. This has inspired us to find a solution that allows our workers to stay fully protected while onsite and during the course of their day.

As we adapt to the new way of doing business, we may well ask the question: ‘Rather than merely surviving this Covid-19 crisis, can our business thrive?’ At plastocor®, we believe the first step to thriving is to ensure all measures necessary to undertake business within Covid-19 regulations are respected. To move from survival mode to thriving, we know that we must continue working together so as to come back better, a collaborative approach that calls for innovative answers.
