Tank Lining Made to Protect in 1 Coat

FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2015

AMSTERDAM--PPG Industries has launched Novaguard 810, a one-coat tank storage coating designed for superior resistance to a wide range of chemical and oil products.

Suitable for both the lining of new tanks and the refurbishment of existing ones, the solvent-free coating is formulated for rapid curing to enable a fast return to service.

A single coat of Novaguard 810 "typically provides the protection required for storage tanks holding crude oil, petroleum products, solvents and various chemicals," according to PPG's Protective & Marine Coatings business.

A smooth, light-colored finish facilitates cleaning and inspection, the company says.

Applications and Features

The two-component amine rapid-cured novolac phenolic epoxy coating is suitable for tanks holding crude oil, aliphatic hydrocarbon, refined petroleum products, heavy fuel oil, unleaded gasoline, xylene and higher aromatics, oxygenated fuel and caustic soda, the manufacturer says.

The solvent-free formulation reduces explosion risk and fire hazard and provides dry heat resistance to 120 degrees C (250 degrees F). Hydrocarbon immersion is possible after one day at 20 degrees C (68 degrees F).

Novaguard 810 can be applied in one coat with a total dry-film thickness of as little as 300 microns (12 mils) and meets EI 1541 performance standards for protective coating systems used in aviation fuel storage tanks and piping, according to PPG. The coating cures at temperatures down to 0 degrees C (32 degrees F) with an extended recoat window.

Crude oil can be stored at temperatures up to 90 degrees C (194 degrees F).
