The Cleveland Aquatic Centre was looking rundown, in poor condition and in need of a refresh. As part of a broader refurbishment of the centre, Signature Painters were contracted to repair and then apply a high-quality 100% solids epoxy to the 25 metre lap pool. We were selected as a finalist in the Master Painters Queensland’s Awards for Excellence 2020 for our excellent workmanship on this project.
The fibreglass of the pool was firstly thoroughly prepared by sanding and stripping all surfaces, and repairing any imperfections. More extensive repairs were also made in a couple of severely damaged areas where the whole section of fibreglass was cut out and replaced with 450 chopped strand fibreglass with polyester resin. The interior of the pool was then thoroughly pressure washed and cleaned with acetone to ensure a smooth finish free of any dust or other blemishes. Three coats of All Purpose Coatings Tinted Pool Epoxy Resin (100% solids) were then applied to provide a perfectly level, durable and long-lasting finish. Epoxy was also carefully reapplied to the swim lines.
