Waterproofing Case Study: World Kitchen

Perhaps best known for their brand of cookware , Corningware, World Kitchens manufacturing facility was being attacked by steam produced internally during production. The steam generated from the rapid cooling of hot cookware submerged in water, was aggressively corroding the steel I beams and ceiling, causing frequent, and expensive, replacement. The WetSuit system was specified to protect the steel infrastructure for the long term. After a rapid installation, the coated surfaces were finished with a high quality white elastomeric that both brightened up the interior and provided a washable surface. Additionally, the plants aged modified bitumen roof began restoration with the WetSuit System., transforming into a seamless, fire,hail and slip resistant roof that can be sustained for years to come. We thank World Kitchen for their decision to invest in the WetSuit System.
