Industrial Painting Tanks In High Moisture Areas
High moisture areas can be problematic for steal. Appropriate coatings will need to include a rust-inhibitive primer, and moisture cured top coat that will help prevent any moisture from coming in contact with the surface. Here’s PennCoat’s approach to a successful industrial coating project:
We were contacted by a local power plant to address the aged coatings on their tanks. This is a hydro power plant, which uses a lot of running water. All that water creates mist and high amounts of humidity, which collectively corrode the steel. As a result, the existing coating was beginning to show rust bleed through the edges, bolts, and some of the paneling. To try and mitigate the corrosion, the customer installed touch-up patches over the heavily rusted areas. However, it was known that the patches were only a temporary solution. So, when it came time to apply fresh paint all over the substrate, they contacted us.
