Solutia Corporation (Holding Tanks)







The Challenge:

The need for a safe, cost effective solution to halt surface corrosion on chemical holding tanks. The tanks were coated with Lead-Based Paint that was flaking and peeling, leaving the metal holding tanks vulnerable to rust and corrosion.


Benefits Desired:

  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Long Term Solution
  • Impact and Abuse Resistant
  • Cost Effective
  • Minimum to No Downtime
  • Green and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings



A Class A Fire Rated, durable, highly impact and abuse resistant, long lasting GLOBAL Encasement System was chosen. The surface rust, mold and mildew was addressed followed by an application of  R.I.P. Rust Inhibiting Primer and LeadLock TopCoat which was custom tinted to match the existing color scheme. For added surface protection, a final coat of Clear Coatwas applied.
