Why Use Polyurea For Your Secondary Containment Projects?

Accidents happen...Who hasn’t dropped their drink before? For most of these instances, the liquid is harmless—aside from a resulting stain on your floor or the inconvenience of cleaning up the spill.

However, spills at an industrial facility typically involve destructive chemicals harmful to humans and the environment. When this type of spill occurs, the containment and cleanup response is vital to minimizing the impact on the environment, business operations, and a company’s reputation in the community.

When this type of spill happens, ArmorThane's seamless secondary containment system provides a barrier that protects the environment from corrosive elements commonly found in the oil production process. This advanced technology maintains impermeability and puncture resistance under exposure to harsh UV and weather extremes, resulting in long life and minimal maintenance costs.
Secondary containment systems prove an extra line of defense if something happens to the primary containment system. For instance, if a storage container that holds wastewater should break, the secondary system will prevent any liquid from spilling out and destroy the environment. It’s a temporary measure that protects the environment until the appropriate actions can be taken to fix the primary system. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) program that mandates facilities storing large quantities of oil to maintain a plan to contain a spill properly. Choosing the proper secondary containment lining technology will provide protection against accidental spills and sizeable EPA fines. ArmorThane installs chemical-resistant industrial coatings that protect the oil industry's infrastructure. This ultra-high-strength, elastomeric, barrier coatings construct a seamless or monolithic membrane that delivers reliable protection against spills.

Today, storage tank facilities are often highly regulated with regular inspections, reports written and certifications earned. When various storage tanks reach the end of their lifespan, polyurea can bring them back to a functional and working condition.  The value of using ArmorThane polyurea protective coatings increases the structure’s service life at a fraction of the replacement expenditures.
