Tnemec Acquires, Renames Glass Armor Linings

Friday, September 17, 2010

Comment | More

Tnemec Co. Inc. has purchased Glass Armor epoxy linings for above-ground storage tanks and will market the technology under the new name Tank Armor.

Tnemec announced Friday (Sept. 17) that it had acquired Glass Armor's100% solids thick-film lining technology from Bridgeport Chemical, a Missouri-based formulator of high-performance epoxy coatings and linings for industrial use.

Tnemec has been manufacturing the Glass Armor line for Bridgeport since 2006 and said that, except for the name, the Tank Armor line would be virtually identical to the former product.

'Meets All Specification Requirements'

"This lining technology will be exactly the same, and Tnemec will continue to manufacture the materials as we did under our previous licensing agreement," said Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets, for Tnemec.

"We will continue to use the same series numbers that we have since 2006. The acquisition of these linings allows us to continue to provide superior resistance to chemicals and physical abuse for the interior of above-ground storage tanks in more aggressive operating conditions."

"Tank Armor meets all specification requirements of major oil companies and fuel jobbers, such as rapid return to service, one-coat application, fast-cure, high-build capabilities, ease of application, and physical properties for long-term durability."

Product Performance Features

The extensive Tank Armor product line offers long-term corrosion protection and chemical resistance, Tnemec says. Features include 100% solids formulations, rapid curing, VOC compliance, abrasion- and impact-resistance, a single-coat high-build (20-150 mils DFT) monolithic application process, bond strength and rapid return to service.

"With fast-curing epoxy liners, it's possible to conduct high-voltage holiday testing within hours of application, then repair any holidays and return the ASTs and trailers to service, usually within 24 to 36 hours," Zinn added.

In addition to its internal tank liners, Tnemec offers a range of external protection coatings for concrete and metal substrates in most industrial environments. Chemical-resistant products suitable for primary and secondary containment are also available.
