Tank Linings with 100% Solids Excellent abrasion Quicker turn around (3-5 times) No VOC limitations / restrictions No solvent entrapment No inter-coat adhesion issues Higher DFT achievable
Typical uses for 100% Solids linings in storage vessels Lining of floor and walls Hydro Carbon tanks usually lined 1 –1.5m (3.5-5.5 feet) up wall Chemical service tanks/vessels often entire internal surface Secondary containment
100%Solids Linings Petro-Chemical Sewage / Wastewater H2S Potable Water Acids / Alkyds Pulp & Paper
Surface Preparation Surface Preparation is Key!! NACE #2 / SSPC SP10 Near White Metal – typical minimum NACE #1 / SSPC SP5 White Metal Best (difficult on existing metal) 2.5mil-5mil anchor profile recommend
100% Solids linings for concrete Again Surface Preparation is Key!!! Grit blasting recommended to remove any loose concrete, providing a clean new substrate to increase adhesion Bug holes need to be filled (often twice) A moisture tolerant epoxy primer best for concrete Green concrete needs to be cured for 26 days for best results
Special Considerations De-Humidification may be required to hold the grit blast on steel substrates Cold climates may require insulation on the tank exterior to prevent condensation Heating often required to cure out coatings in cold weather
Ensuring Longevity / Quality Choose and experienced qualified contractor Research the lining/coating choice for the environment & contents Have a NACE/SSPC qualified coating inspector present the entire job! Ensure your contractor has experience with the lining/coating for your job * If one bid is greatly lower than the rest there is a reason why!
