Industrial Painting

Coating technology for bulk storage containers

Coating technology has come a long way from the old tar roof coatings that became brittle over time and paints that easily peel and degrade. Today, the skilled coating professionals at Painters USA can work magic to stop pin holes, cracking, peeling, and other degradation that can result in leaks, contamination, and structural vulnerabilities.

For example, elastomeric coatings have elastic properties, which allows them to shrink or expand to accommodate temperature changes, content characteristics, how empty or full your silos and tanks tend to be, and other factors.

Linings that help protect tank contents

At Painters USA, we know it’s as important to protect the contents as it is to maintain the tank itself. That’s why tank linings require special considerations. Every product or material being stored has its own unique properties and issues that must be considered. Food safety must be addressed for food and agriculture products. Chemicals are highly corrosive to tank linings and also present safety risks like flammability and explosions.

Corrosion control and prevention

Prevention is the best strategy for controlling corrosion, and that includes tank coatings and linings of the proper type and thickness, professionally applied for specific environmental and operational conditions.

Prevention also requires a plan for routine maintenance and upkeep, developed with your schedules and budgets in mind. It’s important to reduce deferrals and delays that can lead to bigger, more costly repairs and fixes.

Facility maintenance services

Yet sometimes preventative measures are not taken. Facility and operational managers must deal with the realities they face:

With no “one size fits all” solution, Painters USA will identify and recommend solutions based on the tank itself, the contents, the operational setting, downtime and budget constraints, and other considerations.

Tank and silo services and capabilities

Protect storage tanks, silos, and bins from the elements and safeguard normal operations with proper maintenance and coating services.
Company logos & slogans on interior walls or exterior silos & tanks are a great way to enhance your message and brand.
We have certified confined space crews to help with those bin interiors, etc. that need to be cleaned & coated.
