Most interior coating systems for immersion require an SSPC SP 10/NACE No. 2, Near-White Blast Cleaning profiling steel and sspc 6/concrete.
The cleaning and profile will allow the applied coatings system to adhere to the substrate. Delivering you a tight coatings system protecting your tank against corrosion.
Interior coating systems DFT will varry from 12-60 mils typically in a potable water tank. Selecting the coating system can change the cost due to the elements, pot life, re-coat, and back in service time.
like the interior coating system the exterior can range from $30 per gallon to $1,000 per gallon in certain top coats. The coating system selected will determine the profile needed and if the method of over-coating is an option.
