Biloxi Flex Float Barges

 
Park Place Entertainment retained ICCI to apply SPS-11-2.0 General Purpose, two component, rigid, polyurethane floatation foam to two of the four flex floats underneath the entry way to the casino. This job required us to add a Reactor / Fusion Rig for foam application to our equipment inventory which greatly increased our capabilities to complete future projects of this sort. The foam application is designed to provide greater buoyancy, keep water out, and provide erosion protection of the steel. We cut three holes in the barge to pump in the foam and provide ventilation. Careful application was extremely critical due to the high heat generated from the chemical reaction of the foam. Too much foam at one time would cause a combustible fire hazard. After the application of foam, the holes were patched, primed and painted.
