Project summary:

A New York-based utility company had a large tank that previously held #6 Fuel oil. They planned to convert the tank to a more environmentally friendly fuel. However, due to the complex geometry and abundance of high-viscosity fuel oil, they found the tank to be extremely difficult to clean. After several attempts to clean the tank, the contractor spoke with Advanced FRP about an oil-tolerant coating system. The oil tolerant system allowed for >2,000 psi adhesion despite oil being present on the floor in small quantities.
