Specialty Coatings

BHI Energy has teamed with Warren Environmental to form BWC, LLC (BWC).

BWC has developed and patented a unique and extremely efficient process of applying several epoxy-based resin systems.  Our patented process increases application rates while maintaining the proven superior performance of our epoxy products.

The BWC team possesses the requisite experience, capabilities and resources necessary to ensure your project receives the best available rehabilitation service in the industry.  We offer the benefit of inspection, cleaning and repair services, as well as the most experienced nuclear services provider the commercial nuclear industry has to offer.

Contamination Control Coatings & Services

Polymeric Barrier System (PBS)


Easily applied in the field, PBS is a non-toxic, water-based solution ideal for minimizing the dispersion of contaminated materials. It’s also ideal for covering contaminated soil or construction debris, protecting equipment, stabilizing burial trench soil, confining spills and coating asbestos materials.  It forms an impermeable barrier between hazardous or contaminated materials and the environment. Apply PBS to any surface to lock down loose contamination and prevent leaching of contaminates.

PBS is commonly used to stabilize large plant components, concrete, valves, and other problematic radwaste equipment prior to shipment.  It is also used to control environmental contamination and soil erosion, providing a far superior alternative to the traditional approach of plastic sheeting or tarpaulins, and it can be applied using industrial spray equipment, paint rollers and brushes, curing within 2-24 hours, and available in 5 or 55 gallon quantities.

Stripcoat TLC Free™

Stripcoat is a non-hazardous, non-toxic, water-based solution designed serve as a barrier to prevent contamination or a covering to contain contamination. It is recommended for the decontamination of floors, walls and equipment, and can prevent areas and equipment from becoming contaminated during maintenance activities.  Stripcoat’s chemical composition also makes it ideal for system components including reactor cavities, glove boxes or hot cells.

While curing, Stripcoat mechanically and chemically entraps contamination. After curing, the coating strips off, along with loose surface contamination.  Proven effective, Stripcoat has achieved decontamination factors of several hundred (with 200 representing the removal of 99.5 percent of radioactive film).

Stripcoat is easily applied with industrial airless sprayer, paint roller or brush, and one gallon covers up to 50 square feet.  It quickly dries in 4–12 hours, with low waste volumes, and is water-soluble for easy clean-up and qpproved for disposal at low-level radioactive waste facilities or by incineration.

Waterproofing Solutions

Structural Epoxies – S-301 High Performance Epoxies

S-301 is an epoxy-based product that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It contains no solvent or volatile organic compounds and offers superior surface bonding to wet material such as metal, concrete and soil. S-301 sets hard and can be infused with metals such as tungsten or iron.

Features & advantages of S-301 

• Superior adherence to dry or wet building materials (concrete, brick, steel)
• Applies and cures under extreme weather conditions (cold, hot, freeze/thaw, rain/snow)
• Non-toxic/non-carcinogenic (to workers and environment during and after application)
• Non-leaching and low-flammability
• Will not present additional problems during demolition – hard to cut, loss of adhesion, fractures with the substrate, etc.
• Engineered to protect new and deteriorated infrastructure surfaces
• Long working time relative to cure time
• Excellent water and chemical resistance with ambient cure
• Corrosion resistant
• Superior structural values for increased strength
• Zero VOC application for superior confined space safety
• Single coat, high build applications for reduced down time
• NSF compliant for potable water applications

Epoxies for Flex and Movement – Ultraflex & Duraflex

This epoxy based product is a two part, 100% solids, room temperature curing, flexible hybrid epoxy system with enhanced flexibility for applications that require high performance within a wide temperature range.  Ultraflex has low viscosity and high flexibility, while Duraflex has medium viscosity and medium flexibility.

Both offer superior surface bonding to dry and wet material and set pliable when cured, with a Shore D Hardness of 55.

Applications

• Concrete Stabilization
• Contamination Encapsulation
• Water Proofing and Water Intrusion
• Protect Equipment

Features and Advantages of Ultraflex and Duraflex

• Superior adherence to dry or wet building materials (concrete, brick, steel)
