Specification #EL 0813

Hanson Tank's standard epoxy lining is an efficient corrosion resistant non-toxic coating system for potable water storage tanks, providing excellent protection with limited maintenance and good resistance to shipping damage.

It is classified as an epoxy-polyamide hi-resistant heavy build coating. It is spray applied over a near white-metal blasted surface to SSPC-SP10 in a two-coat application and heat cured in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

It is formulated as a tank lining for water, including deionized or distilled water as well as brines and petroleum processes. Designed and laboratory confirmed, it meets the requirements of EPA and USDA for surfaces in contact with drinking water and food. The ingredients and finished products meet the requirements of the US Food and Drug Regulations as listed under Title 21 Chapter 175.300, and most State and Local Ordinances.
