The Importance of Secondary Containment Protective Coatings


Coatings for secondary containment are highly recommended to control chemical corrosion. Protective systems to safeguard our environment from hazardous materials and chemical waste are demanded by government agencies, concerned corporations and individuals. Whatever your condition, PES Solutions has a chemical resistant system for all your containment needs.

Corrosive Environments

The corrosive environments in secondary containment areas vary widely in demands they make on protective coating systems. For example, chlorinated solvents may not be effective in a system that resists concentrated acids. Areas where heavy traffic or mechanical abuse is susceptible require a solution different from areas that are not subject to traffic. Material selection is also affected by substrate condition. Crack bridging systems and techniques are required to repair and maintain the structure of concrete movement and cracking. If there is damage to non durable concrete then there is another type of material used to restore structural integrity.
