Top of storage tank corrosion and how to protect the top of tanks from corrosion using ThinTech Metal Coating.

ThinTech has made it our mission to provide long-term cost-effective solutions from exterior structural to industrial asset production our coatings stand in harsh environments

Overview

The top of storage tanks is susceptible to corrosion due to exposure to environmental elements such as moisture, chemicals, and atmospheric conditions. Protecting the top of tanks from corrosion is crucial to maintaining the structural integrity and longevity of the storage facility. ThinTech Metal Coating can be an effective solution for this purpose. Here’s an overview of the challenges and protective measures:

Challenges

  • Exposure to Environmental Elements: The top surface of storage tanks is constantly exposed to weather conditions, including rain, humidity, and temperature fluctuations, which can accelerate corrosion.
  • Chemical Exposure: If the stored substance is corrosive or if the tank is used for chemical storage, the top surface may be exposed to chemicals that contribute to corrosion.
  • UV Radiation: Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight can also contribute to the degradation of protective coatings over time.

Solutions

Protection Using ThinTech Metal CoatingThinTech Metal Coatings is a durable, long-lasting nano-based clear coating that protects all metal surfaces from various destructive forces. Our metal coating provides superior resistance to rust, moisture, corrosion, salt spray, acid rain, UV damage, oxidation, galvanic corrosion, animal & bird waste damage. A perfect option for direct-to-metal or painted surfaces can be used as a primer adhesion promoter or protective top coat.

Results

  • Corrosion-Resistant Coatings: ThinTech Metal Coating is designed to provide a protective layer on metal surfaces, acting as a barrier against corrosive elements. Metal Coating typically consists of advanced polymers or nanotechnology that enhance their resistance to corrosion.
  • Waterproofing: ThinTech Metal Coating offer excellent waterproofing properties, preventing moisture from reaching the metal surface and reducing the likelihood of corrosion.
  • Chemical Resistance: ThinTech Metal Coating is formulated to resist the effects of chemicals, providing an additional layer of protection if the stored substances or environmental factors contribute to corrosion.
  • UV Resistance: UV-resistant formulations in ThinTech Metal Coating help maintain their integrity over time, even when exposed to sunlight, ensuring prolonged protection against corrosion.
  • Flexibility and Adhesion: ThinTech Metal Coating often exhibit good flexibility and adhesion properties, allowing them to conform to the contours of the tank’s top surface and providing durable protection.
  • Ease of Application: ThinTech Metal Coating is usually applied as thin layers, making them easier to apply and ensuring even coverage on large surfaces, such as the top of storage tanks.
  • Regular Inspection and Maintenance: Despite the protective qualities of ThinTech Metal Coating, regular inspection and maintenance are essential to identify any damage or wear and tear. Touch-ups or reapplication may be needed over time to maintain effective corrosion protection.

Conclusion

By applying ThinTech Metal Coating to the top surfaces of storage tanks, industries can significantly reduce the risk of corrosion-related issues, enhance the life span of the tanks, and minimize maintenance costs.
