Superior Tanks for a Tough Environment
The HighGuard features a strong
dielectric coating of high solids
polyurethane for protection even under
the most difficult conditions. HighGuard
resists surface damage due to impact
or abrasion that may occur during
transportation, rigging and installation.
In fact, HighGuard underground
storage tanks are so tough they require
no cathodic protection or expensive
corrosion monitoring. They out-perform
fiberglass-reinforced polyester (FRP)
clad tanks and require absolutely no
artificial reinforcement.
HighGuard is superior in strength
and rugged in appearance. After
manufacturing and rigorous testing,
the tank’s exterior surfaces are
commercially blasted with steel grit in
preparation for coating.
The HighGuard protective coating
is a dense, solvent-free, tar-free,
two component polyurethane
coating system with high impact
properties and tensile strength. The
coating is spray-applied with special
equipment that ensures an even
application of 75 mils over the entire
surface of the tank. The finished tank
is quality checked by a 15,000-volt
spark test to ensure coating integrity
and effective corrosion protection that
can be measured in decades, rather
than years.
