Your Local Industrial Tank Painting Contractor

As your local industrial tank painting contractor covering MA, NH, ME and RI, Massachusetts-based CommTank maintains a thoroughly-trained, certified and experienced team of professionals. We perform the best methods of inspecting tank linings and coatings, preparing tank surfaces, and installing industrial and marine protective coatings and lining systems.

Our Rigorous AST Surface Preparation Process

As reputable tank coating contractors, CommTank technicians know that surface preparation is critical to achieving the maximum level of protection available through protective coating systems.

Our proven process of AST surface preparation follows these steps:

  • Perform surface sanding, grinding, dry ice or dry abrasive blasting
  • Conduct surface cleaning and degreasing prior to coating
  • Control dust and clean up debris

Our Proven Industrial Tank Coating Application Process

  • Identify conditions specific to an AST that accelerate corrosion
  • Select precise coatings to guard against identified corrosion conditions
  • Control moisture and temperature during coating application and curing
  • Manage safety hazards involved in coating operations
  • Maintain worker safety practices as required of an industrial tank coating contractor
  • Ensure that AST manufacturer requirements are met

After all coatings have cured, CommTank performs a holiday test using a high-voltage detector in accordance with NACE RP-01-88. Holiday testing can detect surface faults in painted or coated tanks.

A properly applied coating should provide a service life of 10 to 20 years. Thus, it is critical to confirm that there are no thin or uncoated areas.
