Having a water tank comes with its fair share of challenges. One of the most important one is that most water tanks are susceptible to corrosion, contamination and water leaks. It is important that you regularly inspect your water tank, so that it doesn’t comprise on the quality of the water stored.
A great practical solution to tackle the contamination of water due to corrosion is— to install an anti-corrosive lining in your water tank. The anti-corrosive coating will prevent the surfaces of the troughs from coming into contact with the stored water.
Acting as an industrial pioneer, Polycon is the only company in the UAE to offer a Polymer Lining for corrosion protection. A polymer lining also known as Rotolining is a technique that helps prevent corrosion caused by a wide range of acids, alkalis, oxidizers, solvents and salts by applying a layer of polyethylene enriched with corrosion resistant chemicals.
What makes a polymer lining stand out from other linings is that it’s lining process forms a protective layer of 2-11 mm thickness which is maximum compared to all other linings. This gives it a host of other advantages like—
- Reduced breakdown and longer uptime. Making it a completely reliable option.
- It reduces overall cost in the asset’s life cycle.
- High impact resistance
- No impact on the structural integrity of part being lined
- Seamless construction with a smooth interior surface, thereby reducing failure points.
- Drastically reduces permeation through coating & possible corrosion of the metal substrate.
- It’s easily repairable compared to other alternatives
The above advantages make the polymer lining a go-to-choice for water storage tanks and even various other assets.
It is extremely important that you protect your water tank from corrosion as it causes structural degradation of the water tanks, making it toxic and unfit for use. The best time to apply a polymer coating is before the installation of the water tank.
Polycon Gulf Ltd, is a renowned name in the GCC, selling premium quality water storage tanks, that are molded from UV stabilized and FDA approved food grade polyethylene material, making them leak-proof and rust-proof.
