Project Description

A full blast was performed for the surface preparation of the interior and exterior surfaces. A one hundred percent solids coating system was used on the interior in order to ensure compliance with the stringent requirements of the New York State Department of Health for VOC’s. A three coat system was applied to the exterior of the tank.
