CommTank provides complete painting and coating services for Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs) and secondary containment. Surface preparation is critical to achieving the maximum level of protection available through protective coating systems. CommTank’s rigorous AST coating preparation includes:

  • Surface sanding, grinding, dry ice or dry abrasive blasting
  • Pre-coating surface cleaning and degreasing
  • Dust and debris control and cleanup

CommTank’s professional storage tank coating application includes:

  • Identify conditions specific to your AST that accelerate corrosion and select precise coatings to guard against those conditions
  • Control moisture and temperature during coating application and curing
  • Professionally manage the safety hazards involved in coating operations and maintain worker safety practices
  • Ensure that all requirements of the AST manufacturer are met

After all coatings have cured CommTank performs holiday testing using a high-voltage detector in accordance with NACE RP-01-88. A properly applied lining should provide a service life of 10-to-20 years so it is critical to confirm that there are no thin or uncoated areas.
