Keeping Safe Is an Increasingly Difficult Challenge Today

These are complicated times.
From the pressure being put on the trucking and transportation industry to the heated conversations about self isolation and wearing masks, it can seem like every day brings a lifetime of new problems. The conversations shift; the politicians argue; the public struggles. If wearing masks would allow students and teachers to do group work and share equipment and have more than 10 students in a room at a time to have “real class,” you would think that most students and their families would comply. Kowing, however, that there are certainly still very many unknowns even the safety of wearing a mask can bring about a heated debate. Teachers dream of a scenario where they are not planning two lessons per day per prep, one lesson that would work in the classroom, another that would be more fitting for school at home. And if the options of mask wearing makes a real in person class experience possible, then most educators at least are ready for the hassle. There

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
