Potable Water Safe Coatings

Potable Water:

Polyurea is the ideal tank liner to protect saltwater and water. It's also available in USDA-acceptable form and is NSF-approved to the NSF ANSI-NSF-61 standards for potable water storage. It doesn't release materials in or out of the water. Additionally, it is completely smooth, making it a great cover suitable for water consumption.

Practical Applications

The practical applications are limitless. One of the most frequent issues people encounter is cracks in the tank where it joins the frame. This is why polyurea is the perfect solution for your tank lining. Polyurea may be applied using a floating area over the area of concern, so when it breaks or moves in the future, it won't cause damage to the liner.

Because the polyurea has a high degree of flexibility and has more than 300 percent elongation, It is the ideal solution for applications that require a lot of force.

Tanks

Tanks are among the most commonly used objects you'll encounter in the industrial setting. The sizes and shapes are infinite. You can find them both underground and above. They are also made from concrete, steel, and many other components. Some are sealed while others are open.

One thing is certain, once you put something in them, the degrading process begins. Even something as simple as water can result in steel becoming rusty. It can cause concrete to crack as it passes through freeze-thaw cycles. Naturally, the more abrasive liquids inside, the process becomes more rapid. The best solution is to isolate the tank from the contents.

Conclusion

A Polyurea tank liner is a sprayed-on, it's flexible and has 100%-300 percent elongation and resistance to a broad range of chemicals. Therefore, it can be inserted in tanks in which other tank lining systems cannot perform.
