Buffalo Gas Tank Coating & Lining
The state of New York has strict safety regulations regarding how companies are permitted to store petroleum. The fuel tanks of your Buffalo business need to be properly coated, both internally and externally to prevent leakage. Failure to follow American Petroleum Institute Standard 652 can result in heavy fines at best and an ecological and health disaster at worst. For businesses in the Buffalo, NY area, there is no more reliable source of gas tank lining and coating than American Coating Technologies.
Internal Gas Tank Coating
Before applying new gas tank lining to your petroleum tanks, experts at American Coating Technologies carefully examine your tanks for any cracks or deficiencies. If any problems are discovered, we provide full repairs for applying a new coating.
Once repairs are complete, we remove all rust, mill scale particles, corrosion, and previously applied coatings using a technique that is most efficient for your gas tank. Only once your tank is completely clean do we apply two coats of phenolic flexible epoxy coating, for a total thickness of at least 20 mils. The entire process takes at least 24 hours and we carefully control the humidity throughout.
Exterior Gas Tank Coating
Similar to the process used for internal gas tank lining, the exterior coat needs to be applied to a completely clean surface. At American Coating Technologies, we water blast the exterior of your petroleum tanks to remove all dirt, grit, and other particles. Once it is clean, we apply a 4-7 mil thick coating of dry-fall primer followed by aliphatic urethane with a mold inhibitor. This topcoat has a life expectancy that is 3 times longer than the old bush and roll method of gas tank coating. It is fast to apply and extremely cost-effective for your Buffalo, NY business.
