Concrete Cancer and Delamination
The Oscar on Hollywood is a multi level residential complex, consisting of two buildings located in Bondi Junction. The Owners have embarked on a large scale remedial project to remove all traces of concrete “cancer” and delaminating render and subsequently apply a three coat acrylic external grade paint coating system.
This project has also provided an ideal opportunity for the Owners to alter the colour schedule of the building and revitalise its appearance.
Bellmont is providing project and technical supervision services, ranging from detection and quantification of concrete/render repair volumes to paint application and adhesion testing of the applied coatings.
Paint adhesion tests are being undertaken utilising a pneumatic testing unit which measures the strength of the bond between the new paint and the host substrate.
Regular dry film thickness tests (DFT) of the paint coating are also being undertaken and recorded with the paint supplier in order to ensure correct coverage rates are being achieved.
The project is progressing well and is anticipated to continue for the majority of this year.
