BluRez Epoxy 480UT

GORO NICKEL, NEW CALEDONIA

Download PDF
Located on the South-Pacific island of New Caledonia, The Goro Nickel Plant is one the largest producers of Nickel in the world. With capacity to produce 60,000t of Nickel per annum, unique products and construction methods were needed to ensure key project objective were met.

PROJECT COMPLETION: 2011

CLIENT/END USER: VALE INCO

APPLICATION

WHERE WE USED BLUREZ 480UT

BluRez Epoxy 480UT was used as a poured in situ load bearing support system being poured under the FRP solvent-extraction tanks after the FRP tanks had been installed.

 

WHY WE USED BLUREZ 480UT

Project specifications called for a non-cementitious polymer based product with load bearing capacities. Once the FRP tanks were installed a low viscosity polymer epoxy resin needed to be pumped from a central point in a radiating pattern under the FRP tanks. In conjunction with Goro Nickel project engineers, Bluey Technologies modified the BluRez Epoxy 480UT Resin to meet project specifications and perform in the unique South-Pacific environment. With low exothermic properties, minimal contraction during cooling, a 6 hour pot life and excellent flow properties BluRez Epoxy 480UT provided a holistic solution for the Goro Nickel project.

 

FEATURES

Extended pot life of 6 hours

Non-shrink for maximum bearing area

Low viscosity and excellent flow properties

 

BENEFITS

Low exothermic curve with minimal contraction during cooling

Resistant to a wide range of chemicals

Compressive strength of 100MPa

 

SUMMARY

Bluey Project Managers provided on site product training, procured specialist equipment, established and implemented quality control documentation.

After sales support was a key component in ensuring the Goro Nickel Project was a success.
