Flood Culvert Protection From Zinga
Continuing Zinga’s expertise in cold galvanizing, we would like to introduce the use of Zinga 96% Zinc Cathodic Protection on 16 sub culvert flood protection pipes near Wrexham.
What Is A Sub Culvert?
A culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road, rail road, trail, or similar obstruction from one side to the other. Within the UK, culverts are embedded and surrounded by soil. Culverts help drain areas at high risk of flooding underneath road and rail lines. They are usually pipes, or reinforced concrete.
A culvert may also form a bridge-like structure designed to allow vehicle or pedestrian traffic to cross over the waterway while allowing adequate passage for the water.
How Culverts Can Fail
Culvert failures can occur for a wide variety of reasons. They can fail due to lack of maintenance, or environmental and installation-related failures. They can also have structural or material failures. Henceforth, culverts can fail due to collapse or corrosion of the materials from which they are made.
If the failure is sudden and catastrophic, it can result in injury or loss of life. Therefore, culverts require sufficient long term protection.
Case Study: Flood Relief Sub Culverts at Bangor-On-Dee
In January 2008, protection was required on a series of 16 sub culverts near Wrexham.
Culvert Protection By Zinga
Due to the location of the sub culverts in farmland, heavily nitrated water was lying with the corrugations of the galvanized culverts. Henceforth, the metalwork was oxidizing the hot-dip zinc at an accelerated rate.
Consequently, some areas of the culverts were heavily pitted and were in danger of perforation. This could be catastrophic due to the road located over the site.
It was vital a long term solution was specified and applied quickly without disturbance.
Solution: Zinga 96% Zinc Cold Galvanizing Application
To prepare for the application of the Zinga 96% the metalwork was hydro-blasted to remove all mud and salts. After this, the inside of the pipework was blast cleaned to SA2.5. Any damage was consequently repaired to standard.
Zinga 96% was then spray applied to 140μm DFT. The work was carried out on all sixteen culverts by Colorado Corrosion from Colwyn Bay, N. Wales. Colorado Corrosion are specialists in culvert refurbishment and confined space work in civil engineering environments.
Introducing Zinga Cold Galvanizing
Zinga is a unique system suitable as an alternative to hot-dip galvanisation or metallisation.
Zinga Film Galvanising System is a single pack coating that contains 96% zinc. Henceforth, it provides cathodic protection of ferrous metals. You can use Zinga as an alternative to hot-dip metallisation, as a primer in a duplex system (active and passive) or as a recharging system for hot-dip galvanisation, metallisation or zinganised surfaces. You can apply Zinga on site, avoiding the need for dismantling ferrous metal structures. It forms a grey matt, non toxic finish. Zinga conforms to ISO standard 3549 in regard to its zinc purity of 99.995%. It also qualifies to ATM standard A780 in regard to its use as a repair coating for hot-dip galvanisation. This product is then overcoat able with a compatible paint.
Zinga 96% Best Uses
Zinga is ideal for the protection of ferrous metal structures such as bridges, a primer for boat keels, pylons, masts, street furniture, etc.
London Underground Approved
Certified for use with potable water (BS 6290 2000)
Certified as non-flammable (BS476 parts 6 & 7 : fire propagation and surface spread of flame)
NORSOK standard M-501 Revision 5 approved
Approved for use in void spaces. This includes all internal structures except for oil tanks and ballast tanks by Lloyd’s Register.

Painting Logos At Thorpe Park Splash Ride
We were recently contacted to specify the paint for logos at Thorpe Park theme park in Surrey.
One of the best places to advertise your company is right at your feet. Logos can be painted in high-traffic areas, so people can see them, especially guests.
Painting logos is an art form in itself. Promain can provide suitable paints for artists to hand-paint logos and other decals on company floors and walls in a variety of colours. With a wide range of options, we have an array of quality paints for both industrial flooring and commercial spaces internally and externally.
Keep in mind, however, that hand-painting is fundamentally different than simply applying a vinyl graphic logo. Painting a logo down onto a floor with a high quality paint will last, no matter the footfall. This is of course if you follow the correct preparation.
Our “create your own logo” paint system below is ideal if you are:
Painting company logos
Paint business logos
Painting company logo designs
Looking to paint logos and names
Painting company logos free hand
Intending to paint brush and roller logo
painting company name on floor
painting company logo on floor
Read below to see how Promain specified paint products to Thorpe Park in Surrey.
Introducing The Project
Owned and operated by Merlin Entertainment, Thorpe Park is one of the UK’s most loved theme parks. Since it’s opening in 1979, Thorpe Park regularly has over 1.8 million visitors per annum.
Due to the frequency of the site being photographed by the public, Thorpe Park loan out the floor and roof area around the Tidal Wave ride. This helps companies get frequent exposure online via social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook.
Richard Hollyer from Hollyer Projects won the project. Richard has worked for various high end entertainment companies including Tussauds Group (former owners of Thorpe Park). Hollyer Projects has a wide range of international experience that they have built up over the last 20 years.
For more info see their website here –
Hollyer Projects employed the services of scenic artist Sarah Baker to carry out the logo painting. Sarah had previously worked with colleagues to carry out the scenic painting at Thorpe Park’s Saw Ride a few years ago.
This new project consists of painting words of the Oasis logo on the floor along with their slogan.
Painting Logos: Promain’s Floor Paint Specification
Tony on Promain’s technical team proposed various options for the project. Initially, Promain suggested ProtectaKote UVR as an option. However, it is only available in a set range of standard colours. Therefore, a second option was suggested – Teamac Chlorvar followed by a clear topcoat where anti slip clear polymer beads could be back rolled in. Chlorvar is available in a most RAL and BS shades but not Pantone colours. This option would be ideal as the painting could be carried out in the companies corporate colours.
One issue we had about using Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber is that this a relatively thin film build. Henceforth, it would not hold the anti slip aggregate. With this in mind our technical department had to think out of the box. They looked at solutions used on Highways applications. These products are subject to much higher levels of wear and tear. This is why chlorinated rubber line marking paint is used on major roads throughout the UK. They are subject to not only water but de-icing salts. These de-icing salts will attack most paint coatings in a relatively short space of time.
The solution was to use an anti slip MMA (methyl methacrylate). The product that was proposed was used in high wear areas on tarmac roads. This made it suitable for application to the tarmac areas adjoining the entrance to the Tidal Wave Ride.
MMA is a widely used paint formulation used for line marking in commercial situations mainly externally as it has high VOC’s. It is a reliable, durable, fast return to service paint coating.
MMA’s use peroxide as an activator and the amount of activator can be varied dependant on ambient temperature. This is to increase or decrease the speed of curing. MMA’s are often applied using a drawbox (see image).
MMA benefits from an extremely fast return to service. However, it also has great durability making it a great choice for this project.
Application of The Paint Logo Design
MMA was identified for painting the company logo. The MMA contained an anti slip aggregate which was chosen as the location is in the splash area of the ride. This means that the ground will be almost constantly wet during the parks opening hours. Thorpe Park in Chertsey, UK was visited by 1.8 million people to it’s 490 acre site in 2017. Henceforth, the logo design needed to withstand the high level of footfall.
Thorpe Park Logo Painting
To get the best finish, the previous logo would have had to be scarified to remove it. This however would have left scaring on the black top which is unsightly and far from ideal. To get around this, it is best to replace the whole section of tarmac with new.
New tarmac however needs to oxide before the application of paint. This oxidisation process will take a minimum of 8 weeks of weathering and UV degradation. As the Park closes for annual maintenance over the winter this extended time frame was not an issue. This also meant we had to find a solution that would be able to cure at lower temperatures.
Below is a great picture of the finished logo design:
Thorpe Park Logo Painting
Painting Logos: Conclusion
The site opened to the public at the end of March 2019. Promain look forward to a continued future relationship with Richard and Sarah.
