Understanding Corrosion in Relation to Tank and Containment Linings

Protective coatings are ideally used in the storage of containment products that require that the coatings be used as linings. These are the same coatings that are used in both atmospheric and underground services. Generally, protective coatings are formulated for three main purposes. One is to act as a buffer between the substrate (aluminum, steel or concrete) and the containment products inside mainly in liquid form. The other purpose is to protect the liquid inside the containment tanks from the substrate. This would require using a corrosion resistant tank lining. Lastly, the custom linings restore the structural integrity of an old tank while still ensuring that the containment products are not contaminated by the substrate and that the liquid stored does not corrode the substrate. Before choosing custom tank liners, it is important to first understand the properties of the liquid being stored. Almo
