Tank Floating Roof Repair

The Problem

This floating roof was failing and leaking vapors into the air causing EPA issues. The customer had to decide between buying brand new or find a make-do solution that would need to last for two years. The Unconventional Solutions team offered a solution that would prevent downtime and saved them money.

The Solution

The Unconventional Solutions team chose to use the high-build solvent-free RESICHEM 501 CRSG, designed for the long-term protection of steel against corrosion and chemical attack.

All the oil and grease was removed from the surface with USI Universal Cleaner. The area was then roughened with power tools, and then cleansed one more time with USI Universal Cleaner to get rid of any remaining debris.

Then VISCOTAQ Sealant was used to fill any voids followed with Resimac 808 Flextech Reinforcement Tape. The RESICHEM 501 CRSG was mixed according to the technical data sheet and was used as the glue to hold everything together to ensure a lasting repair.

For a complete Solution and a white reflective finish, a topcoat of RESICHEM 555 Resinox would be applied, although it is not pictured. Resinox 555 is a water-based high-build acrylic coating that provides long-term corrosion protection.
