Zebron coatings and linings are widely used in both primary and secondary containment structures. They are utilized to protect concrete (and steel) in highly corrosive and abrasive environments. Uncoated leaking hazardous and/or corrosive substances can attack and damage the concrete, and eventually leach through the slab to contaminate surrounding soil, groundwater, streams and waterways.
Primary containment such as chemical process and storage tanks, underground and above ground fuel storage tanks, concrete sumps, etc. are lined to for corrosion resistance, prevention of cross-contamination, substance integrity and protection against leaking. These containment vessels can be sealed or open air, temporary or permanent, and built to contain water, fuel, waste, acidic and caustic compounds.
Secondary Containment structures are designed to control leaks or ruptures from primary containment tanks. Just as tank linings are important, so are secondary containment structures and should be coated accordingly. A secondary containment structure made from concrete or a similar material may seem to be sufficient to contain the oil, fuel, water or chemicals in your tanks but concrete is porous as well as prone to deterioration from weather, impact and chemical exposure. Concrete alone is typically unsuitable as a stand-alone barrier against high concentration chemicals, acids and caustics.
How Zebron Coating Works
Zebron coatings are spray applied, to any thickness, in a single application. The product cures to form a tough, impermeable membrane with excellent chemical resistance and durable physical properties. They are dry to the touch in 25 minutes and can be put into service rapidly.
The coatings are locally manufactured in California, are USDA Bio-Based and NSF61 compliant for potable water.
Tests completed by Northwest Testing Laboratories, and Zebron Laboratory show that Zebron coatings resist a wide range of inorganic and organic acids, bases, salts, bleach, gasoline, diesel, and special chemicals.
