Secondary Containment Liners

The EPA’s SPCC (Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure) regulations require most companies in the U.S. to put in place plans that ensure containment and other countermeasures to prevent oil spills that could reach navigable waters. Facilities such as aircraft deicing areas, landfills, dike areas around fuel storage tanks in airports and refineries all must anticipate spills and have means of containing them.

As mentioned in our previous article, The Importance of of Secondary Containment Protective Coatings, corrosive environments are also a huge factor with secondary containment, thus the importance of having protective coatings to protect your container from being damaged. Heavy traffic and weather elements can cause damage to secondary containment areas if they are not properly coated.
