Hanson Tank's standard epoxy lining is an efficient corrosion resistant coating system for potable water storage tanks, providing excellent protection with limited maintenance and good resistance to shipping damage.
It is classified as a polymerized hi-resistant heavy build coating with an amine adduct-type curing agent. It is spray applied over a white-metal blasted surface to SSPC-SP5 in a two-coat application and heat cured in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.
It is formulated as a tank lining for water, including deionized or distilled water as well as brines and petroleum processes. Designed and laboratory confirmed, it meets the requirements of EPA and USDA for surfaces in contact with drinking water and food. The ingredients and finished products meet the requirements of the US Food and Drug Regulations as listed under Title 21 Chapter 175.300, and most State and Local Ordinances.

Note: The data above was furnished by the coating
manufacturer. As with most tank linings, service life will be longer
if operating temperatures are kept below the maximum.
Epoxy lined tanks are not recommended for solar heating systems due to water temperatures over 180 ºF often being experienced.
