Safeguard Assets With Protective Coatings and Linings

InServe MIG industrial coatings inspections services are focused on the inspection of high-performance protective coating systems for concrete, steel, and other substrates. Asset protection is the ultimate function of such systems and diligence in application, workmanship and proper inspection techniques enhance their performance and service life.

Quality Corrosion Protection Benefits

As soon as you place storage tanks in service, they’re exposed to elements that make them vulnerable. Quality corrosion protection from protective coatings and linings can drastically increase the lifespan of your equipment. Reduce repair and component replacement costs over time by preventing corrosion, and avoid unnecessary downtime and malfunctions.

F.A.Q.

Every facility, organization, or agency has unique needs when it comes to inspections. We’ve answered a few of the most common questions about above coatings and linings here, but our experts are standing by ready to hear about your project.

Why do storage tanks need protective coatings and linings?

Much of the time, storage tanks are made of steel, a metal that corrodes when exposed to water. While manufacturers consistently announce new innovations in construction materials, there’s not yet a pressure vessel on the market that doesn’t deteriorate. Protective coatings and linings slow corrosion, erosion, pitting, and other forms of deterioration that dramatically reduce the lifespan of typical storage tanks.

How do protective coatings and linings work?

Experts apply an impermeable barrier to the inside and outside of storage tanks to prevent moisture and other deteriorating factors from affecting steel. The protective coating or lining might be made of zinc rich primers, synthetic polymers, epoxies, or other substances depending on the tank’s use.

How can corrosion control coatings consulting help me choose the best option?

Our experts weigh factors like abrasion, the need for compatibility with cathodic protection, the facility owner’s requirements for exterior appearance, operating temperature, impact, and chemical resistance, and other needs to select the most appropriate coatings and linings for the project.
