These would be rigid coatings and how does the coating behave with movement or flexing, Say in Road Transport

Comment from Michael McGlamry, (11/1/2013, 10:33 AM)

Hello Kishore. These type of linings/technologies have been used in tank haulers, rail cars and frac tanks over the last 10+ years. Linings applied in these areas are commonly applied at 20 mils DFT or less to keep the lining from becoming to rigid. Linings that are recommended should have enough flexibility in them to compensate and yield to the bending of the steel which is commonly in the 1.5-1.8% range.
