Concrete Strengthening and Why It Becomes Necessary

Concrete is a remarkable material widely used throughout the world in all sorts of building projects and containers. Concrete is a durable material composed of fine and coarse aggregate that is bonded together with cement paste and cured over time, forming a strong and stable surface. Read more »

Tank Linings and Coatings Help You Avoid Leaks and Repairs

Storage tanks are widely used in many industries including agriculture, aquaculture, food processing, waste-water treatment, chemical processing, oil and gas refining, power generation, pulp and paper, concrete production, steel production, and more. Tank leak repair services can overcome the problems of leaks resulting in significant costs in lost fluids and lost production time, as well as the costs of repairs and potential penalties for leaks. Causes of leaks can be avoided or corrected by an expert coatings contractor Bay Area. Read more »

Concrete Strengthening Improvements with FRP

This post takes a look at two projects that show the power of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) for concrete strengthening and tank repair projects. The projects come from two very different sectors: One was undertaken by a municipality to head off problems with its aqueduct system, while the other was executed for the benefit of a natural gas plant’s construction team. Still, both serve as valuable examples of FRP’s uses. Read more »

Repairing and Relining Aging or Leaking Concrete Water Tanks

Concrete storage tanks are widely used for the storage of water in many applications including drinking water, agricultural irrigation water, fire suppression, agricultural watering for plants and livestock, food preparation, chemical manufacturing, stormwater detention, and storage. Other water tank materials in use include plastics, fiberglass, and steel. Concrete storage tanks offer cost-effective long-term water storage in both regular and eco-sensitive locations. Concrete is exceptionally durable and when water is stored in a concrete tank, it remains clear and free of algae, does not emit order nor alter its taste. However, water tanks naturally age over time and eventually, leaks can happen. Then, it is time to secure expert tank leak repair services. Read more »

Save Time and Extend Storage Tank Life with FRP Wraps

Repairing aging concrete infrastructure requires the striking of a delicate balance: The repairs need to be done in a reliable fashion, yet if they become too expensive, they can wreck the budget of an industrial or municipal project. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites can help strike that balance, delivering successful results at an affordable rate. Read more »

Storage tanks are extensively used for the storage of fluids in many industries. These industries include mining and metals, chemical, energy, food and beverage, water, and wastewater. No matter the composition of the tank itself, tanks can deteriorate over time. They may also experience the problems of rusting, cracks, cold weather, temperature cycling, and corrosive chemicals in the tank. Read more »

Fiberglass Repairs Provide an Alternative to Costly Steel Replacement and Repairs

A revolution is coming in the world of infrastructure installation, repairs, and maintenance, according to Michael Legault of CompositesWorld. It’s being driven largely by the advent of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and the repairs that material makes possible. FRP repairs provide a cost-effective and productive way to heal damaged infrastructure, thus avoiding the need for costly, time-consuming replacements. FRP tanks can also serve as an excellent alternative to steel and concrete in some applications. Read more »

bay area sandblasting service

Storage tanks are an important feature of virtually every production and manufacturing facility around the country. They are used to store such things as petroleum products, various chemicals, acids, water, and waste matter. Many storage tanks are built from metal, but some are made of fiberglass. No matter the construction, no tank will last forever. A tank may experience the natural effects of corrosion, a failure in the tank structure, or the tank coating or may need to be repurposed for some other tank contents, requiring a change of lining. When tank rehabilitation is called for, sandblasting may be required in the restoration process. Then, it is time to call in an expert sandblasting Bay Area company. Read more »

tank lining bay area

Storage tanks, both above ground and below ground, are essential components of many industries including chemical, mining and metals, food and beverage, energy, water, and wastewater. Tanks store many types of fluids for these industries and due to the natural corrosive processes of collecting and storing fluids, they are subject to leakage. That calls for quality installation and maintenance of tank linings and for tank leak repair when needed. Read more »
