Description

Fixed Structures Maintenance Corroseal Coatings Pty Ltd is an Australian owned company, which has been involved in the design, manufacture and installation of protective and refurbishment systems for steel, timber and concrete piles. The Corroseal systems have been developed as an alternative to replacement of timber and concrete piles and as a method of extending the life of existing steel, timber and concrete piles. With timber piles becoming harder to obtain and the cost of driving new steel and timber piles in isolated areas or through the decking of existing wharves, there has been a requirement for another way of obtaining the required load capacity and extend the life of the existing piles and wharf structures. We have been able to offer this at a minimum of cost with effective low cost maintenance requirements and no interruption to on-deck activities. The first Corroseal Marine System was installed on the Tug Berth for the Port Kembla Port Authority on 88 off H Section piles in 1989 where it has performed well. The Corroseal petrolatum tapes and primers for the marine environment were developed by our company and tested by the Dept of Defence Non-Metallic Laboratories at Garden Island and by Expandite, now known as Parbury Technologies. Since 1989 our range of Corroseal Marine Systems have grown to incorporate (10) ten methods of refurbishment and protection incorporating (4) four systems for steel piles and (6) six systems for timber and concrete piles and specials with installations in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland numbering well over 1000 piles.
