The Dampier Port Authority called on Duratec to refurbish handrails at their Dampier Bulk Liquids Berth Jetty.


Using pneumatic sanding tools, the handrails were mechanically abraded after a high pressure fresh water wash to remove salts and contaminants. A bristle patch test procedure was used to ensure the surface was chloride- free.

A four-coat protective coating system was brush and roller applied. It consisted of a zinc-rich primer (Interzinc 52), two coats of epoxy (Interplus 1180) and catalysed acrylic topcoat (Interfine 629).


  • Duratec’s NACE 3 inspector ensured the coatings met the 600 micron dry film thickness specification.
  • In total 380 lineal metres of handrails were refurbished back to their original pristine golden yellow condition.
  • The challenges of the project included following Dampier Port Authorities strict environmental guidelines and operating during the many vessel movements of the jetty.
