United States, Cleveland, Ohio

The Situation:

Cleveland RTA constructed catch basins for runoff from their bus maintenance garage for the Westside bus garage. The oil separator catch basin was designed to skim off oil residue into a fiberglass tank for later cleanout. Designed to handle the maintenance of 200 buses, the project was in need of a sealant that can secure the joints and keep the runoff from leaking into the ground.

The Solution:

Since the runoff from the garage contains oil, a sealant that can maintain its properties when exposed to oil was needed, and for this CS-440 was used. In addition, CS-102 was used to seal and secure joints. The use of primer CS-50 and ConWrap CS-212 helped to insure a watertight installation.
