Knowledge is Power when Choosing the Right Tank Coating Technology

Superior epoxy coatings are not created by inventing a fancy, proprietary name for epoxy material. Superior coating systems are engineered through a combination of product (material) and process (application), supported by decades of R&D, experience and field-tested data. In order to differentiate one tank coating from another, one must distinguish the facts from marketing fluff.

The coatings technology report is an informational series about coatings and coating processes that will educate you on how to make the best decision on tank coatings based on your particular technical and commercial decision criteria.
