Large Mining Tank


Scubapoxy 1725 being applied underwater to seal leaks in large mining tank.

A very large mining industry client in the northwest of Western Australia had multiple leaks in one of their main water tanks. The massive 60m diameter x 15m high tank had previously been lined with High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), but the seams were now splitting apart and had the potential to undermine the tank, resulting in the earthen base subsiding.

Fremantle Diving Centre used 150 litres of 1725 underwater to seal all the leaking seams and apply a reinforcement material to prevent them from splitting in the future. The project was completed on time with the tank fully repaired and 100% dry.

Fremantle Diving Centre has developed a multitude of uses for Scubapoxy underwater epoxy products and have field tested these applications on many projects with outstanding success.
