Sulfuric acid is a dangerous chemical capable of corroding skin, paper, metal, and yes, even concrete. Exide Technologies’ flooring had become this colorless, oily, liquid chemical’s victim, causing cracks and spalls along the indoor tour route. The solution was to repair the damage with an acid-resistant product. Easy enough, but downtime isn’t an option for Exide Technologies, a lead-acid battery manufacturer that supplies automotive and industrial industries. Rather than interrupting their manufacturing, the CCS team performed the repair during the plant’s scheduled shut down at the holidays. What wasn’t easy was Exide Technologies’ environmental conditions – acidic with temperatures approaching the 100-degree Fahrenheit mark.
