Steel Contact Tank


Steel Contact Tank

Acothane DW was chosen as the preferred water proofing solution for re-lining this above ground steel contact tank at a water treatment plant.

After removal of the existing failed bitumen coating, heating and de-humidification equipment was installed to ensure that the correct application conditions were achieved.

Two full coats of Acothane DW were applied by brush and rollers to achieve a final thickness of a minimum 1 mm, Acothane DW with its solvent free technology, also benefits from an approval under regulation 31 of the drinking water inspectorate for use in contact with drinking water, tough polyurethane finish with a degree of flexibility and fast 7 day return to service at 3 degrees.
