Chemical resistant FRP lining system
Top coat
RINOLLINING CR 543 is a chemical
resistant lining system for steel and
concrete substrates based on glass
fibre reinforced vinyl ester resin.
Reinforced layer
RINOLLINING CR 543 has excellent
long-term resistance to most acids and
alkalis and to many organic solvents.
As a protective lining for carbon (mild)
steel and concrete structures subject to
continuous or semi-continuous exposure
to corrosive chemicals.
Areas of application
• chemical plants
• oil refineries
• waste water treatment plants
• power stations
• steel works
• non-ferrous metal refineries
• food and beverage plants
• resistant to most acids and alkalis
• resistant to gasoline, oils and most
• withstands thermal and mechanical
• resistant to cracking and crazing
• good heat resistance
• excellent adhesion and strength
• complies with Japanese Food
Sanitation Act

System description
A glass fibre reinforced vinyl ester lining system consisting of
a primer, one or two layers of chopped strand mat, a layer of
surfacing veil and a top coat.
4.1 The primer should be allowed to cure for not less than 4
hours but not more than 24 hours before application of
the reinforced layers.
4.2 A coat of catalysed RINOL CR 543 base resin is applied to
the primed surface using a roller. A layer of chopped
strand mat (csm) is then laid into the resin taking care to
avoid wrinkles and a further coat of catalysed RINOL CR
543 base resin applied. The resin impregnated csm is then
thoroughly deaerated and allowed to cure for approximately 4 hours.
4.3 The second layer of csm is then applied as described in
4.2 above.
4.4 Immediately after the second csm is deaerated a layer of
surfacing veil is laid onto the surface and a coat of catalysed RINOL CR 543 base resin applied using a roller taking
care to ensure thorough impregnation. The reinforced layers are then allowed to cure for approximately 4 hours
before application of the top coat.
4.5 RINOL CR 543 base must not be applied if the temperature
falls or is expected to fall to within 3˚C of the dew point.
Method statement
1.1 Suitable substrates are concrete, polymer modified concrete and mild (carbon) steel.
1.2 Concrete substrates
1.2.1 Concrete structures must incorporate a waterproof
layer (DPM or similar).
1.2.2 The surface should be steel trowelled to a flat and
even finish.
1.2.3 In the case of fair-faced concrete metal or plywood formers should be used.
1.2.4 Concrete should be at least 28 days old and have a
tensile (pull-off) strength of at least 1.5 N/mm2 when
measured according to a recognised national standard.
1.2.5 The substrate shall be visibly dry with a moisture content not exceeding 4% when measured according to a
recognised standard.
1.2.6 The substrate must be clean and free from dust and
loose particles. All traces of contaminants such as oils,
fats, greases, paint residues, chemicals and laitance
should be removed.
1.3 Steel substrates
1.3.1 The surface must be degreased to remove all traces of
oils, fats, greases and chemicals.
2.1 Concrete substrates
2.1.1 The preferred methods are vacuum shot blasting and
sand or grit blasting. For small areas wire brushing is
suitable. For horizontal areas scabbling can be used.
2.1.2 All holes, honeycomb and undulations shall be made
good using RINOL putty.
2.1.3 All angled corners shall be radiused to 30 mm using
RINOL putty or chamfered.
2.2 Steel substrates
2.2.1 Steel should be shot blasted to white metal SA 2 1/2
3.1 The primer will normally be RINOL CR Primer catalysed
with MEKP.
3.2 Steel substrates must be primed immediately after blasting.
3.3 The primer is mixed using an electric mixer and applied
to the prepared substrate by brush or roller taking care to
ensure complete even coverage. Material consumption
will be 250-500 g/m2 depending on substrate roughness.
3.4 RINOL CR Primer must not be applied if the temperature
falls or is expected to fall to within 3˚C of the dew point.
No.1 in industrial flooring
Application of the reinforced layer
Application of the top coat
5.1 The catalysed RINOL CR 543 base is mixed with pigment
and wax and applied evenly to the reinforced layer using
a roller.
5.2 Material consumption should be 250-350 g/m2.
5.3 The top coat should not be applied if the temperature falls
or is expected to fall to within 3˚C of the dew point.
5.4 RINOLLINING CR 543 should be allowed to cure for a
minimum of 72 hours before being put into service.
Specification clauses
The lining system shall be RINOLLINING CR 543 reinforced with 2 (1) layer(s) of chopped strand mat.
The colour shall be green (grey) (ivory) (dark grey).
Chopped strand mat is normally used at a weight of 380 g/m2.
For severe applications a heavier grade at 450 g/m2 can be
Surfacing veil is normally made from „C“ glass or polyester fibre and is supplied at a weight of 30 g/m2. For specialised applications surfacing veil made from carbon
fibre may be used.
