Metal coatings for steel structures and infrastructure

Chemical resistant epoxy tank linings 

Interior surfaces of storage tanks and reservoirs

Tank lining products must combine exceptional anti-corrosive performance with effective chemical resistance.

Two-component epoxy products are commonly used for coating the interiors of tanks. The Tikkurila range includes modern 100%-solid solvent-free epoxy paints with extremely good chemical resistance to oil, petrol, jet fuel and kerosene as well as to hydrocarbons such as diesel and heating oil, motor and gear oils.

Metal coatings for industry
Coatings for metal surfaces. Steel structures.

A tank lining system should be chosen only after a thorough study of  stress conditions. The strength and temperature of the chemicals to be stored in the tank are crucial to the service life of the paint film. E.g. the interiors of storage tanks for gas and petroleum products require a lining that can withstand heavy ambient chemical and thermal stresses.

To ensure compatibility between the tank lining and the product stored, please contact our technical staff.
