Float Coating is the ultimate way to stop rust and corrosion in voids, tanks and rudders.
Traditional methods of protecting confined spaces are time consuming, expensive and dangerous.
Stop blasting, priming and re-coating confined spaces. Simply float S2S into the space to provide long lasting protection against rust and corrosion. Float coating is safe and eliminates the need to enter into confined spaces.
What is a float coat?
Float coat is a method used to apply S2S rust inhibitor to difficult or unsafe to access voids, tanks and rudders. S2S rust inhibitor polar bonds to metal, like a magnet to steel. It can be “floated” into areas that are difficult to access and will provide 100% coverage and protection of all metal surfaces.
How do I float coat?
The float coat procedure will yield 100% coverage of all contacted surfaces in one operation.
For small tanks and rudders, the fill and drain procedure may be used, eliminating the need to add water.
MEASURE & POUR S2S PRODUCT
Calculate product requirements. Each gallon will coat 200 sq ft. Add 20% to final calculation. A pail coats 1000 sq ft, a drum coats 10,000 sq ft.
GENTLY & SLOWLY ADD WATER
Place pump hose at floor of tank and slowly fill with water. Note: Product is lighter than water and will float on top and polar bond to the metal as it rises.
FILL VOID AREA TO TOP OF SPACE
When the water and Product reaches the top, turn off the pump and allow to settle, ideally for 24 hours. This will allow the Product to clearly separate from the water.
GENTLY & SLOWLY PUMP WATER OUT
Slowly pump the water out from the bottom. Use a screen to filter out rust flakes. The last portion of discharge should be captured and disposed of according to local, municipal and federal regulations.
