I have several water tanks constructed with carbon steel for demineralized water storage. The tanks are about 20 years old, and the original coating has started to blister. For refurbishment of the coating, what material should be used and at what dry film thickness? The original type of coating is unknown.


Should you paint the stainless steel outfitting (ladders, supports, etc.) in steel cargo tanks of chemical tankers?


What coating problems are likely in storage tanks that have dissimilar metal sides and floors?


What is the most common or economical coating system for rehabbing the exterior of above-ground storage tanks?


What are the options for shop-applied systems (surface preparation and coating type) to protect the interiors and exteriors of new saltwater storage tanks and associated steelwork that will be exposed to seawater, and that will allow for easy touchup and maintenance once the structures are erected?
