Epoxy tank liner for severe chemical environments
A 100% solids epoxy liner is available for use in transport
tanks containing chemical blends or acids used in hydraulic
fracturing (fracking). Series 391 Tank Armor is a new
chemical-resistant formulation developed by Tnemec and tested
for severe chemical immersion environments. It offers corrosion
protection against hydrochloric acid and selected chemical
combinations, along with toluene and xylene blends.
When spray-applied in a single, high-build coat by plural
component equipment, it is possible to conduct high-voltage
testing within hours of application. Then any voids can be
repaired and the tank or trailer can be returned to service,
usually within 24 hours to 36 hours.
Series 391 contains no solvent and is volatile organic compound
compliant and abrasion-resistant. It is applied at 20-mil to
40-mil dry-film thickness (DFT). Surface preparation for
immersion service requires steel to be prepared in accordance
with SSPC-SP5/NACE No. 1 white metal blast cleaning with a
minimum angular anchor profile of 3.0-mil for coating
applications of 20.0-mil DFT or greater.
