Q: SHOULD WE APPLY A CORROSION COATING TO OUR NEW WASTEWATER COLLECTION SYSTEM STRUCTURES (i.e. manholes, lift stations, wet wells, etc.)?
Absolutely! Due to urban sprawl and the rebirth of “grayfields”, more and more communities and engineers are taking the extra step of coating new wastewater and water structures to extend the life of the service to the community. As infiltration and the effect of corrosive gases are two primary cause of deterioration in a collection system, the addition of a corrosion barrier to a new structure will ensure a longer life to the system and a better ROI for the taxpayer.
Q: DOES SPRAYWALL® SEAL OFF INFILTRATION?
You must stop any infiltration using appropriate water-stopping material before applying SprayWall®. Once that has been accomplished, finish preparing the structure for spraying. Once you spray the substrate with Sprayroq™’s SprayWall® structural product, the polyurethane will bond to the concrete, steel or masonry, sealing off the infiltration.
Q: CAN I COAT A SEPTIC TANK OR BASEMENT WITH SPRAYROQ™ PRODUCTS?
Yes, you could, but it probably isn’t practical or cost effective. SprayWall® and SprayShield Green were formulated to work in a water and wastewater environment. the use of the product for other sealing and corrosion applications may not be the best answer. Check with your local SCP or Sprayroq™ to see if your application may be right for this product line.
Q: DO SPRAYROQ™ PRODUCTS BOND TO ONLY CONCRETE?
No, Sprayroq™ products have a tenacious bonding ability to not only concrete, but steel, aluminum, masonry materials and other substrates that may be used in our water and wastewater systems. SprayWall® and SprayShield will not bond to polyethylene.
Q: WHAT OTHER APPLICATIONS CAN I USE SPRAYROQ™ FOR?
Some of the applications for Sprayroq™ products include coatings or linings of the following structures:
• Manholes (Water and utility)
• Junction boxes
• Lift stations
• Storm sewers
• Wet wells
• Grit chambers
• Retention ponds
• Secondary containment fields
• Water tanks
• Corrugated pipes
Plus many other applications in the water industry and other industrial infrastructure rehabilitation and corrosion coating applications.
Q: DOES SPRAYROQ™ HAVE A QUALITY ASSURANCE PLAN?
Yes, all batches are tested to product specifications such as viscosity and reaction and cure rates. Testing occurs at the production plant and lab which located with our home office in Irondale, Alabama. Any discrepancies would initiate an investigation of that particular batch.
Q: WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR SPRAYROQ™ PRODUCTS?
If the 55 gallon drums remain sealed, the expected shelf life of the products is one year. If the drum has been opened and may not be used for a time, be sure to reseal the drum tightly to protect the product from moisture and top off the void in the drum with nitrogen if possible.
Q: ARE YOUR PRODUCTS THIRD PARTY TESTED?
Yes, we have copies of all of our third party test results available on this website – they are available on each product’s detailed information page located under the products tab above!
Q: HOW LONG IS THE SPRAYROQ™ WARRANTY?
