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
It is classified as a polyamine-epoxy high solids 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 potable 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.
It is approved for potable water in accordance to ANSI/NSF Standard 61. Colors approved are light grey and white.

manufacturer. As with most tank linings, service life will be longer
if operating temperatures are kept below the maximum.
Epoxy lined tanks are not recommended for solar heating systems due to water temperatures over 180 ºF often being experienced.
