Fuel Tank Coating & Liner
Interior Coating for Petroleum Tanks
American Coating Technology uses the American Petroleum Institute Standard 652 for the lining of above ground petroleum storage tanks.
Our Interior Coating Process For Fuel Tanks
During our inspection of your tank, we will determine the extent of repairs necessary to meet the API 652 standard. We will then decide on the best blast cleaning system for surface preparation to match the requirements. We will determine abrasive particles and technique necessary to remove mill scale, rust, corrosion, and previously applied coating in order to achieve an SSPC-SP10 near white metal blast with a 2 to 3 mil profile.
American Coating Technologies always controls the relative humidity during the blasting cycle and will apply a holding primer if necessary.
We will apply the first coat of our phenolic flexible epoxy coating at the rate of 10 to 12 mil thick. We then allow the coating to cure for a period of a minimum of 24 hours and then apply a second coat of our epoxy at the rate of 10 to 12 mil thick for a minimum of 20 mil thick.
We always subject the entire area to a Discontinuity (Holiday) Test using 25,000-volt test equipment. We guarantee our system for a period of five years for use of tank protection from crude oil, refined petroleum, unleaded gasoline, MTBE, aromatic solvents, and most octane boosted blending fuel stocks.
