Creating a leak-proof membrane is crucial for secondary and oil containment. Aging systems can fail when needed most due to freeze-thaw, intense dry heat, ground shift, and other environmental factors. Fortunately, ArmorThane has several protective coatings that create a long-lasting chemical and waterproof barrier. The coating seals around all cracks and crevices, including penetrations. Spraying over a geotextile material and other containment berms and pits is both effective and inexpensive. If equipment is moved, removed, or added, the containment can be securely patched if required.
Secondary containment is paramount to prevent leaks and spills from polluting surrounding areas and groundwater. ArmorThane industrial coatings are involved in the maintenance and rehabilitation of all types of containment systems. These systems may be sealed or open air with surfaces of metal, plastic, concrete, or geotextile materials. Polyurea coatings are ideal for any secondary containment system, in particular:
