Elastomeric lining to reduce cracking
There is a solution to the combined threats of UV, weather, chemical and expansion-contraction problems on water storage solutions: an engineered elastomeric lining system.
There is a solution to the combined threats of UV, weather, chemical and expansion-contraction problems on water storage solutions: an engineered elastomeric lining system. This can be applied to primary and secondary containment structures ranging from wastewater facilities to protecting livestock ponds from chemical infiltration.
The engineered elastomeric lining is noteworthy for its long service life, ability to "bridge" joints and cracks in concrete, imperviousness to UV light and harsh chemicals, and ease of installation. The Elasti-Liner system from KCC (Houston, TX) is a leading line of engineered elastomeric lining products that is applied by brush or roller to concrete substrates and directly over expansion and control joints.
Past installations for the firm include the elastomeric formula as a lining of a large, 4-ft. containment dike for an 18,000 sq. ft. tank farm holding highly-corrosive phosphoric acid in Chicago Heights, IL. The elastomeric product line can be used to bridge cracks up to one-eigth inch as the polymers are cross-linked and act like coiled springs that expand and also contract as concrete moves. www.kcccontrol.com
