Lining is a coating designed to cure at low temperatures and is applied inside and outside a tank to provide the ultimate protection of the substrate material from chemical attack.
This lining offers corrosion resistance and maintains toughness in metallic, plastic and concrete tanks, which offers storage for petroleum products, chemicals and other reactive solvents.
The characteristics of a good tank lining should:
- Create an impermeable barrier
- It must fully adhere to the substrate
- It should seal all the gaps
A continuous series of coatings on the surface of the tank protects the tank from further corrosion by preventing corrosion agents by keeping liquids in or out depending on the storage facility. Geo-membrane made from textiles, polymers and composites is largely used in modern tank lining.
