SECONDARY CONTAINMENT EPOXY SYSTEMS
Secondary containment coatings for storage of hazardous materials such as flammable solvents, corrosive liquids are required by state and local laws to mitigate damage from accidental spills and/or natural disasters of flood, fire and earthquake.
Demands for the coating and containment will vary by governing bodies and locations of the storage site. Typically, a containment area would need to hold spillage of all product in the area for 24 hours without leakage into the ground water and surrounding area. Epoxy coatings of the self-leveling type with higher elongation and flexibility facilitates good crack bridging properties under static conditions and low temperature.
EC-422A, with its backbone of a highly flexible amine component and good chemical resistance, is ideal for these situations.
