Why UV-PCO Technology will change your facility maintenance plan forever

Ultraviolet Photocatalytic Oxidation (UV-PCO) technology sounds space age, doesn’t it? In truth, it’s nanotechnology in action. It uses light — from the sun or fluorescent fixtures — to activate a mineral in our products called titanium dioxide (TiO2). The TiO2 quickly breaks down organic molecules, such as grime, bio-film, smog and VOCs, that are then washed away with the rain. Because the process never uses up the TiO2, the self-cleaning process can happen over and over again, even with just one application.

Acid Spill Containment for Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia

Acid spill containment systems are very similar between the different manufactures.   Some manufactures have products that can be used on existing battery installations without having to remove the existing racks, others you must remove the racks and install the spill containment before reinstalling the racks.

HPP has acid spill containment systems which allows us to provide for both new installations and existing installations with the best solutions available.

Basically if your battery system has 50 gallons or more of electrolyte,  whether it is wet or in gel form as in a VLRA battery, then you are required to have an acid spill containment system installed. This applies even if it is an existing battery system .The spill containment system will need a 4 inch lip with acid adsorbing/neutralizing  pillows inside the containment field to meet current regulations with some type of protection for the floor, whither it is an epoxy paint or a liner. In California the spill containments and pillows must be serialized to insure that you are keeping fresh pillows in the system and for disposal purposes. The neutralizing pillows have a shelf life of about 5 years, they will be required to be changed out and replaced with new ones after this time.

Another item that your facility should have, is what we call an acid spill kit. The kit is for use when working with batteries and an acid spill occurs that needs to be cleaned up and neutralized. This can happen when replacing batteries and a battery has a crack in the case and leaks acid out. The kit consists of a container of acid neutralizer and protective clothing. These kits can be in a small pail for smaller installation or in a drum for larger installations. Also the kit can be mounted in the battery room in a cabinet for easy access.

National Painting & Coatings Company Supplying Protective Coatings For Massive Cleveland Innerbelt Bridge Project

Epoxy intermediate coating Macropoxy 646 provides high-gloss protection from harsh Northeast Ohio weather for vital city artery

A leading National Painting & Coatings Company Supplying Protective Coatings was chosen by Atlantic Painting (Oak Lawn, Ill.) to supply high-performance protective coatings for the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) I-90 Innerbelt Bridge project. Coating work is now underway on the 1.8 million square feet of steel that comprise the westbound span over the Cuyahoga River. Reconstruction of the bridge, which opened to traffic in 1959 and is the main east-west artery into and through downtown Cleveland, is the largest project in ODOT’s history. The new bridge, which is north of the existing span, will be 4,247 feet long and stand 120 feet over the Cuyahoga River Valley at its highest point.   Tank Lining & Coatings Kentucky Indiana.

To give the bridge a high-gloss finish and protect the structure from the harsh Cleveland elements, Sherwin-Williams will supply Macropoxy 646, an epoxy intermediate coating, and HP DOT Acrylic Polyurethane, a high-gloss top coat in off-white, for the project. The company is also providing Zinc Clad IV organic epoxy that will be used by Atlantic’s field painters to touch up the shop-primed steel sections and splice plates. More than 26,000 gallons of coatings will be used for the project.

“ODOT needed high gloss, a low film build of 2-4 mils with higher-build performance, superior weathering, and ease of application,” said  regional market director, bridge & highway,  “These products will achieve all of those requirements. As a company headquartered for nearly 150 years in Cleveland, it is gratifying to be an asset protection partner on an infrastructure project that is such a vital link to the city from points near and far.”

Although not all states require steel bridges to be coated, ODOT does stipulate protecting its bridges in this manner.   Bridges in Northeast Ohio must stand up to some of the most rigorous inspections there are, given the constant expansion and contraction caused by thermal cycling, and exposure to road salt and airborne contaminants from Lake Erie winds.

The project design and product specifications address these issues. Because of the level of degradation and corrosion that can occur at structural joints, ODOT wanted to limit their number. The old bridge had joints at every one of the 14 piers, but in the new design there are only two.

In addition, QUV accelerated weathering tests (5,000+ hours of UV exposure is Ohio’s standard) and field experience document the superior gloss retention of the topcoat, which doubles the maintenance-to-recoat cycle. “Our testing demonstrates gloss retention even after 9,000 hours of exposure. This considerably extends the lifecycle of the coating and provides unprecedented value for the taxpayers,” he noted, saying the bridge would likely only need to be repainted two or three times during its design life of 75 years.

The project is unusual in several ways. ODOT used a value-based design-build approach (vs. design-bid-build) for the first time, to expedite the work and minimize disruption to both local motorists and those traveling between Chicago and the Northeast US.

In addition, the bridge’s architecture has distinctive delta-shaped girders that complement the Cuyahoga Valley topography without dominating it. The design teams that competed for the work were evaluated on their ability to deliver on not just cost and an ambitious schedule, but also on preserving the aesthetics that define this part of Cleveland’s landscape. The project was awarded to general contractor Walsh Construction in partnership with HNTB Corporation, the lead architectural and engineering design firm, and HDR, the independent quality engineering firm.

A global protective and marine coatings company that delivers smarter asset protection and unmatched service and specification support to its customers from 4,000 locations worldwide.  From alkyds to zincs, the company offers a complete line of time-tested, high performance  Industrial coatings, Commercial Paints and systems to combat corrosion, supported by the largest group of NACE-certified coatings inspectors in the industry.  Serving Kentucky, KY Indiana, IN West Virginia, WV and Tennessee, TN.

Professional and Expert Asbestos Removal Advice for Kentucky & Indiana

Removing  Asbestos, and the Abatement  from Buildings.  Testing your Building for Asbestos.

Removing Asbestos in Indiana and Kentucky

Asbestos Removal Kentucky Indiana

Structures containing asbestos are marked.
Weathering of fibrous asbestos sheeting showing loose fibres.

A typical  asbestos enclosure.

Depending on how and where asbestos was applied, it might not pose any risk to most users of the building. If the fibers cannot become dislodged, they cannot be inhaled, and thus the asbestos poses no risk.

Many buildings contain asbestos, which was used in spray-applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and in a variety of other materials. Asbestos was sometimes “flocked” above false ceilings, inside technical ducts, and in many other small spaces where firefighters would have difficulty gaining access. Structural components like asbestos panels were also used. In residences, asbestos was often a component of a type of flocked acoustic ceiling called popcorn ceiling or “cottage cheese ceiling”, until its production was banned in the U.S. in 1978. However, the ban allowed installers to use up remaining stocks, so houses built as late as 1986 could still have asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. The only way to be sure is to remove a sample and have it tested by a competent laboratory.

PDCA Member & Membership Louisville, KY.

However, some methods of applying asbestos, particularly flocking, allow asbestos fibers to gradually drop off into the air. Asbestos poses hazards to maintenance personnel who have to drill holes in walls for installation of cables or pipes.

Even if the workers are protected, such maintenance operation may release fibers into the air, which may be inhaled by others. Interventions in areas where asbestos is present often have to follow stringent procedures.

When asbestos fibers can easily be made into airborne dust, the material is known as friable. For example, a popcorn ceiling is extremely friable, whereas asbestos floor tile is considered non-friable.

Different countries have different regulations and methods of enforcement, when it comes to asbestos removal. It is extremely important to remember that prior to any asbestos removal procedures taking place; the client has a duty of care and must verify that the specialist removal contractor can provide the following: proof of license if licensing is required within the jurisdiction; proof of specific asbestos public and employer liability insurance; proof of worker training to include supervisor and contract manager training within 12 months; proof of worker fit-testing and medical surveillance, within 12 months; proof of specialist equipment testing within 6 months – DOP and PAT within the EU. Optionally the specialist contractor should be able to provide accreditation from ARCA or other such trade organization.

Additionally, any contractor should be EPA RRP certified when working in any region of the country and in Louisville, Ky

If removal is to be performed when users are still present in the building, it is usually necessary to relocate some users temporarily. Typically, the part of the building from which asbestos is being removed has to be sealed off in order to prevent contamination of the other areas. Methods of sealing off an area often include the use of Polyethylene film, duct tape and negative air pressure machines which are fitted with HEPA filters. The idea is that the contained area is pulling fresh air in as to not allow asbestos fibers into the surrounding environment.

Only a special vacuum cleaner that’s designed for asbestos containment (class H) can be safely used when cleaning up during and after asbestos removal. Ordinary vacuum cleaners cannot be used, even those fitted with a HEPA filter.   An ordinary vacuum cleaner will expel the asbestos fibres into the room air.

If the building is closed to normal users, it may be necessary to seal it off from outside atmosphere so that no accessible air is contaminated. Examples of asbestos removal enterprises include the Jussieu Campus (begun circa 1996 and still going on as of 2005) and the Tour Montparnasse (in 2005, projected duration was three years if the tower was emptied of its users, and ten years if it were not).

An asbestos-containing building that is to be torn down may have to be sealed (see third picture on right), and to have its asbestos safely removed before ordinary demolition can be performed. The asbestos removal may take longer and cost more than the actual demolition. For example, the former seat of parliament of East Germany, the Palast der Republik, was stripped of most of its asbestos between 1998 and 2001, before it was finally demolished starting in 2006.

Removal is not the only means of asbestos abatement. Asbestos and asbestos-bearing materials may be “enclosed” or “encapsulated” to prevent building occupants from being exposed to the fibers.
