Industrial Coatings – Tank and Pipe Lining

A New Era in Marine Protective Coatings.

Chemco is a world leader in innovative coating solutions in the Marine industry with over 35 years experience in the design and manufacture of unique, state of the art technology.

In recent years, the high cost of grit blasting and grit disposal, as well as strict environmental control necessary for the application of conventional paint systems, has forced the industry to look at alternative surface preparation methods and, consequently, for products which can be applied on damp/wet substrates.

Utilising truly wet & rust tolerant coating technology, Chemco’s marine coatings enormously reduce the cost and duration of all contracts. Many forward thinking companies throughout the world have been utilising these technological breakthrough systems for more than 10 years with complete success.

It is through the most advanced coating systems that we can now not only comply with all legal legislations and help the environment, but reduce the cost of maintenance as well as life cycle cost.

Chemco uniquely guarantee coating performance and lower application costs for any application: patch repair, complete refurbishment or New Build.

Product Information


Chemco have been designing specialist tank and pipe lining systems for over 35 years. These glassflake linings have a successful track record in the most aggressive chemical and high temperature environments.

Chemco also offer a range of ceramic systems for tank linings where abrasion and chemical resistance are required.

Solution 1

Polyester Glassflake Coatings

Chem-glass™ 200 Series

These products are recommended where long lasting performance is required. Their unique characteristics (optimum protection from the harshest and most severe operating environments) make them an ideal choice for metal, concrete and other substrates.

Chemco’s polyester coating systems are available in two versions; Chem-glass™ RA 200 and Chem-glass™ RE 200.

RA 200 is typically utilised as a tank lining offering exceptional resistance to harsh chemical environments. RE 200 is an isophthalic polyester traditionally utilised as a one-coat system for offshore structures.

Solution 2

Vinylester Glassflake Coatings

Chem-tect™ 300 Series

Chemco’s vinylester range has provided the most cost effective, long-term tank lining solution for over 30 years. These vinylester systems have now superseded polyester due to their ability to handle the most aggressive chemicals at higher temperatures.

There are six unique products in the Chem-tect™ 300 series. These vinylester glassflake systems offer long-term corrosion protection across the full pH range (1 – 14).

They are particularly effective in acidic environments at high temperatures where conventional epoxies cannot function.

Solution 3

Solvent-free Epoxy Coatings

Epo-chem™ RA 500M

RA 500M is a solvent-free, wet tolerant glassflake epoxy with excellent chemical resistance which can be utilised for a wide range of tank applications; potable water, crude oil, sewage, refined oil (diesel/petrol), sea water ballast and cargo. This system has the following approvals:

  • NSF certificate for potable water
  • FDA approval for food contact and potable water
  • IMO approval for sea water ballast tanks
  • IMO approval for crude oil cargo tanks

Epo-chem™ RB 500

RB 500 is a solvent-free epoxy coating specifically designed for wine and beer tank lining applications:

  • Provides long-term protection for steel and concrete tanks
  • Exceptional chemical resistance to aggressive cleaners
  • Extremely smooth, high gloss finish
  • Easy to clean and decontaminate
  • FDA approved for alcoholic beverage applications

Solution 4

Solvent-free Novolac Epoxy Coatings

Epo-chem™ RF 500

RF 500 is a solvent-free, glassflake Novolac epoxy coating specifically designed as a tank and bund lining for high concentration acids and low pH applications:

  • Provides a tough impermeable barrier suitable for steel and concrete surfaces
  • Outstanding resistance to strong acids (including 98% Sulphuric Acid)
  • Cures to form a very hard and high gloss finish
  • Extensively used for secondary containment in acidic environments

Epo-chem™ RW 500

RW 500 is a solvent-free, glassflake Novolac epoxy coating specifically designed as a tank lining for the combination of high temperatures and aggressive chemicals:

• Outstanding protection to metal and concrete substrates
• Exceptional resistance to abrasion, erosion and thermal shock
• Ideal tank lining system for confined spaces
• Specifically suitable for high temperature process vessels
• FDA approved for hot potable water, food and beverage
