Cast Iron Intake Valve Restoration
Case History #027 REV.04-97
Cast iron salt water intake valve body badly eroded and corroded after years of of service. Surfaces were abrasive-blasted. A base coat of ARCOR S-16 was installed. ARCOR TS-RB was then applied by squeegee to fill the voids left by the aggressive corrosion. A Top coat of ARCOR S-16 Blue was applied by brush building the dry film thickness up to 30 mils. Coating thickness was as much as one half inch in areas of deep pits. Figure 1 Valve body surface ready for coating. Figure 2 ARCOR S-16 Primer coat. Figure 3 Unit with ARCOR S-16 Blue top-coat.
