Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 24 June 2015. PPG Protective and Marine Coatings has unveiled NOVAGUARD 810, a specialized tank storage coating which provides outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemical and oil products.
The solvent-free coating minimizes application hazards and is equally suited to the lining of new tanks and the refurbishment of existing ones. Rapid curing properties mean fast return to service after painting and its smooth, light-colored finish enables easy cleaning and inspection.
A single coat is typically all that is required to provide protection for storage tanks holding crude oil, petroleum products, solvents and a variety of chemicals. Crude oil can be stored up to 90 degrees Celsius (194°F).
Jake Ojeda, PPG’s Global Segment Manager Petrochemical said:
“The storage of crude oil and refined products are some of the most demanding applications for petrochemical tank linings . Storage tanks need a coating that provides outstanding resistance to a wide range of oils, chemicals, solvents and refined products, but is easy to apply as well as cost-effective. NOVAGUARD 810 tank lining answers these needs in a product that is also solvent-free which minimizes hazards for personnel.”
NOVAGUARD 810 is suitable for tanks holding crude oil, aliphatic hydrocarbon, refined petroleum products, heavy fuel oil, unleaded gasoline, xylene and higher aromatics, oxygenated fuel and caustic soda.
The coating cures at temperatures as low as 0 degrees Celsius (32°F) with an extended recoat window. NOVAGUARD 810 can be applied in one coat with a total dry-film thickness as low as 300 microns (12 mils). It is also meets the EI 1541 performance standards for protective coating systems used in aviation fuel storage tanks and piping.
