Madico, Inc. Underground Tank Lining

This job involved relining a steel underground tank. Unlike other jobs, the chemicals stored in this tank are very corrosive and are the main components in paint stripper. Sound like a difficult job for a tank lining company? You can watch the video that shows the solution we provided for Madico by clicking the link under the photo slideshow.

After calling our lining suppliers we found one that could guarantee a compatible surface to this chemical blend. Before applying the coating the tank had to be sand blasted down to white steel. Not even rust inside a pitting would be acceptable. The tank was then primed and coated using the 2-part epoxy system. Due to thermal requirements the coating application process had to be tightly coordinated and safety protocols were strictly adhered to.
