ChemLine® Coatings Provide High Corrosion Protection for Tanks with Aggressive Chemicals

ChemLineChemLine® patented high performance storage tank linings resist corrosion from more than 5,000 types of chemicals, including aggressive acids, alkalis, solvents, CPPs, and edible oils, even at elevated temperatures.

ChemLine® polymer coatings are 97% to 100% solids with extremely low VOCs, making them the preferred lining system for bulk chemical storage tanks. ChemLine® is now in use worldwide at terminal facilities, tank farms, and processing operations with storage tanks. These innovative polymer coatings are formulated to deliver high cross-linking functionality, and are heat cured to create a nearly impermeable barrier.

Special ChemLine® versions are also available for specific requirements including an ethanol formulation for wine and spirits tank storage.
