Secondary Containment Coatings

Known for its extreme strength, SC-3900 containment coating bonds quickly, perfect for rapidly sealing a leak. It is also flexible – 300% elongation allows it to move with the substrate, even through extreme weather fluctuations.

High-Temperature Secondary Containment Coatings

"Justrite Industrial Coatings has been installed for over a year and has performed as advertised. Unit 1 has seen a 180,000 MWh reduction in opacity derivations from 2011 to 2012 due in great part from this coating work which equates to 5.1 million dollars in revenue."

SC-3900 High-Strength Industrial Coating Containment Wall System

Using high-strength SC-3900 industrial coatings and cinder blocks, we offer a fully-encapsulated, PE-approved containment wall system providing chemical and fuel resistant containment. SC-3900 coats smoothly and is tack-free in seconds for a quick installation – up to 75% faster than liner installations. Its rapid cure time eliminates vulnerabilities to weather, such as rain or other moisture.

Optimize the SC-3900 Containment Wall System with optional SPCC-compliant oil spill protection. Add Barrier Boom windows or an HFF Oil Stop Valve for passive storm water and runoff control with oil leak protection.

Rehabilitating Faulty Seals and Leaks on Geodesic Domes in the Oil and Gas Industry

Many aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) used in the oil and gas industry have geodesic dome roofs. Typically constructed from aluminum for their corrosion-resistant properties, over time daily thermal expansions and contractions work to create gaps between the panels. These gaps allow corrosive gas vapors and hazardous contaminants to escape from the tank. The gaps also allow humidity, airborne chlorides, and particulates to infiltrate the tank and contaminate its contents.

Traditional methods of repairing geodesic domes--like replacing the panels or sealing gaps with tape--are expensive and labor-intensive. Justrite’s SC-3900 spray-applied, flexible coating system offers an alternative solution.

Multiple geodome roofs sealed to prevent future issues
Gaps between panels completely sealed

The coating is applied directly over the seal and cures very quickly. It is much stronger than tape, and chemically resistant to fuels, sulfuric acid and leachate water and the vapors they emit. Additionally, SC-3900 can be applied while the tank is in service, eliminating down time.

Once dry, the flexible coating moves with the tank roof, even as temperature and weather fluctuate. Once the dome roof is sealed with SC-3900, noxious odors and vapor loss are substantially reduced.

Total Release Annular Protection System (T.R.A.P.S.) Provides FDEPA-Compliant Overfill Protection

Use Justrite’s exclusive, patented T.R.A.P.S. (Patent No. 7874764) for overfill protection in existing and new tanks. It ensures the containment area will hold the desired amount or greater to meet FDEPA requirements of five minutes maximum pumping capacity. The system includes continuous monitoring of a containment area for hydrocarbons, notification to personnel should a hydrocarbon be detected, and valve closure to activate at desired rate with instantaneous closing of containment valve.
