The Bloxam tank interior will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Near White finish (SSPC-SP 10) and lined with one full coat of aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, a stripe coat of polyamidoamine epoxy, and two full coats of polyamidoamine epoxy lining systems for use with potable water.

Interior pillar surfaces will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6) and coated with an inorganic hybrid water-based epoxy and a coat of HDP acrylic polymer.

The tank exterior will be abrasive blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6) with a lead-stabilizing abrasive additive and coated with an aromatic urethane zinc-rich primer, an aliphatic acrylic polyurethane intermediate and an advanced thermoset fluoropolymer polyurethane finish.
