Work undertaken

Mechanical means were used to remove the old paint before applying a series of coatings. The process began with two layers of DPM Primer followed by the application of one coat of RXEP Hi-Build 500.


After successfully completing previous projects at the Zoo, the property managers were once again very happy with work on the penguin pool floor. It no longer leaks, providing a surface that is both durable and easy to clean for the staff.
