Thousands of wastewater tanks and containments at treatment plants throughout the United States are reaching the end of their coatings' and linings' functional service life. Once the coating or lining has failed, the steel or concrete substrates can quickly corrode, degrade and leave the wastewater treatment plant headed toward a facilities nightmare. In the past, the accepted protocol was to apply another thin mil coating system, like an epoxy, and then start the clock on its road to eventual failure.
Now, newer technologies allow for the application of cutting-edge lining systems that provide excellent resistance to the liquids and gases found in waste water streams, including all municipal and industrial waste water treatment plants. Amtech's Durachem 580 Spray Up Polylining systems become like Tupperware bonded inside the structure, virtually separating the structural wall from the harsh environment of that wastewater stream. This can save thousands of dollars in capital replacement costs and virtually eliminate the traditional peeling and flaking of thin mil coatings.
