CHEMIPROTECT ENG. Heavy-duty industrial
Flooring systems constructed of acid-proof brick
and acid/alkali resistant mortar are essential in
areas subject to heavy loads, aggressive chemicals
and high temperatures.
CHEMIPROTECT ENG. offers a comprehensive line of
acid-proof lining materials. These products may be
used in various combinations to solve a wide range
of corrosion problems in:
- Dye & Intermediates
- Chemical Processing
- Fertilizer Plants
- Chloro-Alkali Plant
- Steel Mills
- Power Generation
- Smelting & Refining
- Battery Rooms
- Paper & Pulp
- Rayon Industry etc.
CHEMIPROTECT'S Acid-proof industrial flooring systems
withstand all types of physical abuse, while providing
protection from wide range of highly corrosive chemicals,
at elevated temperatures. Proper design, selection
of materials & proven installation for new or
existing areas give you a permanent system with advantages
not offered by any other type of flooring.
SUBSTRATE: The concrete substrate should be sound, clean, dry,
and free from any contamination. Proper slope should
be maintained in all areas.
The membrane forms an impermeable layer between acid-proof
brick construction and concrete sub-base. Several
membrane systems are available from CHEMIPROTECT
depending on the condition of the sub-base and
chemical & temperature condition requirements.
An appropriate membrane system is selected to provide
sound construction and maximum protection.
MORTAR: CHEMIPROTECT ENGINEERS offers several specially
formulated cement-mortars for fixing acid-proof bricks.
These mortar systems utilize organic or inorganic
binders combined with Silica, Carbon or other select
fillers. The result is a variety of mortar products
each offering advantages for a specific chemical
The appropriate mortar should be selected and installed
using the bricklayer's method, with typical 6mm thick
bedding and side joints of 4-5mm. The bedding is
trowelled directly on cured membrane, and acid-proof
brick, buttered on five sides are then placed directly
into the wet bedding mortar. Subsequent acid-proof
bricks are then firmly massaged into position and
should be tapped to squeeze mortar from the joint.
Once the bricks are in place, excess mortar should
be struck from the joints. Following proper curing
of the mortar is highly recommended.
ACID-PROOF BRICK/TILE: Most industrial flooring & lining
involves a 37mm thick brick for light traffic & chemical
exposure. For heavy-duty application a 75mm thick
acid-proof brick should be used. In areas subject
to severe physical attack a 75mm thick single or
a 37mm thick double layer may be used.
