The solvent-free coating minimizes application hazards and is equally suited to the lining of new tanks and the refurbishment of existing ones. Rapid curing properties enable a fast return to service after painting, and a smooth, light-colored finish enables easy cleaning and inspection.
A single coat of the NOVAGUARD 810 product typically provides the protection required for storage tanks holding crude oil, petroleum products, solvents and various chemicals. Crude oil can be stored at temperatures up to 90 C (194 F), and the coating cures at temperatures as low as 0 C (32 F) with an extended recoat window.
“The storage of crude oil and refined products are some of the most demanding applications for petrochemical tank linings," said Jake Ojeda, PPG global segment manager, petrochemical. "Storage tanks need a coating that provides outstanding resistance to a wide range of oils, chemicals, solvents and refined products, but is easy to apply as well as cost-effective. NOVAGUARD 810 tank lining answers these needs in a product that is also solvent-free, which minimizes hazards for personnel.”
NOVAGUARD 810 coating is suitable for tanks holding crude oil, aliphatic hydrocarbon, refined petroleum products, heavy fuel oil, unleaded gasoline, xylene and higher aromatics, oxygenated fuel and caustic soda. It can be applied in one coat with a total dry-film thickness of as little as 300 microns (12 mils), and it meets the EI 1541 performance standards for protective coating systems used in aviation fuel storage tanks and piping.
