Corrosion is defined as the gradual destruction of materials or their properties due to a reaction with their environment. Affected mediums include metals, plastics, and other materials that are incompatible with certain chemical compounds. The useful properties of materials and structures, including strength, appearance, and permeability to liquids and gases, can all be degraded by corrosion. One way to combat this is by protecting the structure with a high-performance, corrosion-resistant coating.
Many high-performance coatings offer tremendous resistance against corrosion and abrasion. But there are few specialized coatings that provide chemical resistance for strong liquids — such as acids, alkalis, gases, solvents, or oxidizers — as well as extreme temperatures and other factors associated with the storage and transportation of such liquids.
It is essential that the interior, as well as the exterior of metal tanks, be protected. In addition to environmental factors that can cause corrosion of steel, there are many types of products stored inside tanks that can accelerate the breakdown of the surface. If the structure is not appropriately protected, perforations can occur and cause consequential damage to the interior. The cost implications can be felt directly and indirectly by the owner through the loss of production, environmental impacts, and required damage repair.
To provide the most cost-effective corrosion protection, the right criteria must be considered when selecting a coating. If an appropriate coating is not chosen and applied, contamination of the stored product and deterioration of the tank becomes more likely.
