Why Polyurea Is The Ultimate Tank Lining Solution

Polyurea Water Tank Relining


There are several polyurea blends that can be used to line tanks, based on the containment needs. Polyurea tank Linings are flexible as being abrasion-resistant. They’re also ideal for use in the wastewater industry in the same way that they can be used for potable water as well as food containment.

Water | Wastewater

The wastewater industry is the largest overall consumer of Polyurea tank linings. This is because they are able to withstand the majority of chemical and chemical gasses that are produced by wastewater treatment plants. Additionally, anti-microbial additives may be added to the polyurea to stop the growth of microbes on the liner. The most important thing is that polyurea coatings create a unidirectional membrane. This means they can be molded to pumps, poles or other inner structures. Large diameter pipes, as well as manholes and lift stations, are ideal models for Polyurea. Polyurea can be found with hard-structured formulations to can strengthen pipes and manholes. Because sprayed on linings they conform precisely they create the ideal structural coating.

Potable Water:

Polyurea is the ideal tank liner for water and saltwater. It’s also available in NSF-approved and USDA-acceptable to an ANSI-NSF-61 standard for storage of potable water. It doesn’t leach substances in or out of the water. It is also seamless, which is a perfect liner to drink water.

Practical Applications

One of the most frequent issues we encounter is that the tank cracks when it connects to the frame. Because of this, it is possible that the polyurea tank lining is installed with a floating section above the affected area, which means that should it crack or move in the future, it won’t cause damage to the liner.

Because the polyurea is pliable and has over 300% elongation, it is the ideal solution for applications that require extreme duty.


Tanks are among the most frequent items that you can see in the workplace. The sizes and shapes are limitless. They can be found both above and below on the ground. Additionally, they’re made from concrete, steel, and a myriad of other materials. Some are open while others are sealed. Additionally, some are stationary, while others are mobile but one thing is certain, you can put something into them and you’ll see the damage begin. Even something as simple as water can result in steel being rusty. Concrete will begin to break up as it goes through freeze-thaw cycles. Naturally, put more aggressive liquids in , and the process is more rapid.

The obvious solution is to separate the tank from its contents.


A Polyurea tank liner is a spray-on coating that is flexible as well as having a 100%-300 percent elongation. It is also resistant to a variety of chemicals. This is why it can be put in tanks in which other tank lining systems aren’t able to perform. Read the datasheets and decide whether it is possible to use a Polyurea tank liner is suitable for your particular project.
