Tank Chime Repair

Tank Chime Repair

The Problem

A wastewater company was looking for a cost-effective and durable repair solution for their tank chimes. There was a 1½ in. gap that needed to be repaired and sealed.

The company also wanted to save time with a solution that is easy to apply.

The Substrate


The Solution

Unconventional Solutions used a viscous elastic Denso Viscotaq Sealant, a mastic-like paste with synthetic properties to seal the gap at the base of the tank chime. To protect from further corrosion, the sealant was then covered with a 70mil viscous elastic Denso Viscotaq E-Z Wrap that can be painted immediately.

Since the floor plate of a tank is constantly moving during the filling and emptying process, the permanent flexibility and aggressive adhesion of this viscous elastic system is ideal for tank chime areas. Then we painted the Denso Viscotaq E-Z Wrap with RESICHEM 555 Resinox for long-lasting, aesthetically-pleasing corrosion protection.

Products Used

Below is a demonstration on how Denso Viscotaq® EZ Wrap is easily applied for a tank chime repair.
