OVERVIEW

The potable water tanks were approximately 90 years old and were showing signs of corrosion damage. The client required these tanks to be restored to “as good as new” condition.

CHALLENGE

The tanks had holes through their shell, floors and lower walls. The tanks were also located in a confined space on the roof of the building. Working within a strict time frame also added to the difficulty of this project.

SOLUTION

Manual preparation was selected as the surface preparation method. One primer coat of solvent-free, wet & rust tolerant Epo-chem™ RS 500P was applied first. This was followed by two topcoats of solvent-free, wet tolerant Epo-chem™ RA 500M.

OUTCOME

The work was completed in three working days with no delays. The tanks were restored to “as good as new” condition resulting in huge cost savings for the client as
they did not need to purchase new tanks. This system is NSF Certified for fresh drinking water applications.

• Solvent-free
