It seems like everyday we find new applications for SolarShell, our fiberglass laminate. Because it cures into an impenetrable fiberglass shell, SolarShell makes a patch ideal for repairing steel or other industrial applications. But what if your repair requires more than a little patch or two? What if your repair is so large you’re considering replacing the entire application instead of investing the time and resources to fix it?
No problem. Whether your problem is big or small, SolarShell can solve it.
The solution for steel
In the following example, a chicken farm used SolarShell to line a large, outdoor steel sewage tank. Lining the inside of a steel tank with laminate can add 30 plus years to the working life of the tank at a fraction of what it would cost to replace it. Sure, they could have used the laminate to patch the most corroded areas here and there—or they could have sprung for the cash to replace the tank altogether—yikes! But instead, they applied SolarShell as a liner to reinforce the walls of the tank. They realized that lining with laminate would not just repair, but it would also protect against corrosion, rust, and leaks in the future.
First they drained, dried, and sandblasted the inside of the tank. Then they grinded off rusted areas, patched holes, primed with resin, and applied the laminate, which cured quickly in direct sunlight (about 15 minutes). They finished the job with a new coat of paint, and the tank looked and performed like new.
What about other applications?
Solar Shell doesn’t just work with steel—it also bonds with concrete, insulation glass, wood and virtually any other substrate and can conform to any shape, making it ideal for a variety of industrial applications.
Don’t replace what you can repair. SolarShell is easy to apply and works better than standard epoxy, putty, or fiberglass repair kits. What can you use it for?
