GROUND ZERO FOUNTAINS, NEW YORK – KOREKOTE EPOXY SYSTEM (KR24/H420)

 Project:

  • New fountain system installed at Ground Zero in New York required high pressure water piping.
  • All pipe components were produced from traditional pipe manufacturing plastic resin.
  • The 90° and 45° elbows could not handle the pressure and would blowout each time the system was pressurized.

Action:

  • KoreKote epoxy system (KR24/H420) was used to manufacture the 90° and 45° elbows.
  • The new KoreKote epoxy components with SafeResin technology were installed in the piping system.

Result:

  • The Ground Zero fountain has not experienced a blowout in any of the 90° and 45° elbow components since final installation and system pressurization.
