Ceramic Polymer: External coating of a huge universal tank in Czech Republic
The external coating of a large tank in Czech Republic was conducted effectively with the products CERAMIC-POLYMER STP-EP and PROGUARD 169(37).
By: Ceramic Polymer GmbH /CHESTERTON ČR s.r.o.
The tank has a height of 25 meters and is used within the car factory as a universal tank for different substances. The former condition of the tank required a complete renovation of the steel casing and the concrete base.
First of all, the steel was prepared for the application of the coating by sandblasting according to purity level Sa2,5. Afterwards our protective coating CERAMIC-POLYMER STP-EP was applied in a thin layer of 180 µm by airless spraying. The top coat PROGUARD 169(37) features already with a layer of only 70 µm a long-term weather resistance.
Project: External coating of storage tank, refurbishment of concrete base
Size of the tank: 25 m height, 30 m diameter
Area external coating: 3.150 m²
Area concrete renovation: 89 m²
Coating products: CERAMIC-POLYMER STP-EP + PROGUARD 169(37)
Layers thicknesses: 180 µm + 70 µm = 250 µm total DFT
Expected service life: More than 15 years
The external coatings for comprehensive protection under hardest conditions
CERAMIC-POLYMER STP-EP is a surface tolerant two pack ceramic composite epoxy coating
This product offers a reliable corrosion protection, excellent abrasion resistance as well as a high chemical resistance. Thereby, it is perfectly suitable as prime coat for external application in extremely aggressive atmospheres.
PROGUARD 169(37) is a 2-component highly-crosslinked polyurethane top coat
The finishing coat provides beside long-term resistance against UV radiation and weather conditions an outstanding color stability. This product is applied in one layer and cures fast. It also features a high chemical resistance. Thus, it is used for typical scopes and also very harsh environments.
