After a 12 month in-service trial, it was proven that Arcoplate was the only product that has not been affected by any cavitation and highly abrasive monsoon floodwaters running through the sluice. Extensive laboratory tests also indicate that corrosion will not be of any significance throughout the service life of the Arcoplate.
From the year 2009 to 2011, all 5 sluiceways were lined with Arcoplate 1600 16on15. Annual thickness testing clearly indicates that the Arcoplate will achieve well in excess of the nominated 10 years’ service life. Up to the year 2018, all 5 sluices performed extremely well.
