It is essential to have a secure and reliable secondary containment system to block and protect against spills and leaks contaminating groundwater and surrounding areas. ArmorThane rehabilitates and maintains every type of containment method on the market. A containment system can be open-air or sealed and can be made of plastics, concrete, metals, or other geotextile substances.
ArmorThane has several polyurea and polyurethane products available for secondary containment systems, containment booms, and building containment berms. ArmorThane products form a leak-proof membrane when dry that will hold any liquid spill. The coating has the flexibility needed to weather ground shift and block cracking.
Creating a leak-proof coating or membrane is the most crucial step for successful secondary containment systems. Aging systems can fail due to freeze-thaw, intense dry heat, ground shift, and other environmental factors. Providentially, ArmorThane has various protective and effective coatings that will create a watertight and long-lasting chemical barrier. Coating sprayed over geotextile material, cavities, and containment berms are cost-effective and effective. The coatings seal around any cracks, perforations, or holes. If any equipment is transferred, combined, or removed, the secondary containment can be repaired as needed.
WEATHER AND CORROSION RESISTANCE
Fuels, chemicals, crude oil, corrosive liquids, and wastewater are standard hazardous materials for backup systems. Our polyurea and polyurethane coatings inhibit rust, surface degradation, and corrosion that cause containment systems to fail. Corrosive materials and reactants sit harmlessly up against ArmorThane's coatings without destroying or eroding the surface. With ArmorThane Coatings, you can greatly reduce your liability and maintenance expenses.
Not only do ArmorThane Coatings products protect your systems against rust and corrosion, but they also protect against damaging contact with direct sunlight. Our coatings expand and contract in severe weather without splitting.
CUSTOM SPRAY APPLICATIONS
Sprayed-on coatings are much thinner and therefore take up a lot less space when compared to pre-formed liners. Sprayed-on coatings form a strong but seamless membrane around the container that perfectly fits any shape, even where pumps, poles, and external and internal structures attach.
PROBLEMS WITH STANDARD LINERS
Paint, rubber linings, and other standard surface protection systems do not have the same long-lasting qualities that polymers such as polyurethane and polyurea posses. Rubber and paint linings can also absorb and release materials, odors, and toxins that can contaminate. Rubber and paint liners additionally do not have the same protection to abrasion and corrosion as polyurethane or polyurea. Paint and rubbers have flaws that aggressive chemicals and other caustic fluids will discover and exploit. Some of their products are significantly less expensive, often 25-40% or more. They are also a better quality are more durable than your standard epoxy coating.
ArmorThane coatings can be used with any secondary containment system, regardless of whether that system is an open-air or sealed and made out of metal, plastic, geotextile materials, or cement. We know that your most pressing concern is preventing spills and leaks from harming groundwater, surrounding spaces, and people.
