Specialist Coatings (GB) Limited carry out surface preparation, application and testing an extensive range of tank lining products which are designed to meet every corrosion and containment challenge. The refurbishment or lining of an existing tank is more cost effective than replacing a tank and certainly more environmentally friendly.
A minute hole in the internal protective lining of an aggressive chemical bulk storage tank can rapidly become an extremely serious problem. It is potentially very dangerous to personnel and the environment and could lead to product loss and wastage.
Any contamination of food or drink stored in a process vessel with a substandard internal surface could necessitate the disposal of the entire production batch or permanently give your client a lower impression of the standard of your product than it really deserves.
The cost of a failed container is not only the repair cost, but the lost material or product, the lost time and in some cases the cost of providing a replacement tank.
The rules that we apply have been learned from many years of experience:
- Choose the right materials for the job
- Prepare the surfaces correctly
- Apply the coating as specified
- Test the results
There are no short cuts: to stop corrosion and to protect the tank we use the right materials, the right tools for the job, and we test the results until we are completely satisfied.
In short... We are specialists.
All our services are available as a single turn key operation or on a consultancy basis for any element from specifying a suitable lining material, preparing and applying the new lining, to quality control, inspection and testing the work by other contractors. (including dry film thickness and micro-porosity checks.)
Food grade, chemical resistant and high temperature lining material variants available.
We offer a supply of tank lining materials directly for trade and professional use and also for DIY applications.
We can supply for quantities of resin lining repair kits to make localised patch repairs in tanks with existing resin linings.
