Linings for the oil & gas industry

Protect your tanks, lower your maintenance costs and increase your uptime

The toughest job in the business

Storage tanks are subjected to some of the toughest conditions in the oil & gas industry, including extreme pH swings, high abrasion and/or impact, elevated temperatures and higher pressures. Adding to this complexity, stored commodities, such as caustics, acids and strong solvents, are all highly corrosive. Exposed to these harsh conditions, your tanks can quickly develop corrosion, causing different degrees of pitting and, in the worst cases, leakages into the environment.

That’s why you need a high-performance lining system to protect your product and your tanks. The lining system has to reduce maintenance requirements over the long term and be fast to apply – so you can produce new tanks quickly and minimise downtime on existing tanks.

Maximise your profits with Hempel linings

Our Hempaline Defend linings are designed specifically for aboveground storage tanks, mobile tanks, process vessels and secondary containment areas. Suitable for even the largest diameter storage tanks and the most aggressive environments, they are proven to extend tank lifetime, lower maintenance requirements and increase inspection intervals.

Because you may need to switch between products, Hempaline Defend linings are easy to steam clean. Our assortment also includes rapid-cure systems that can be applied and dried in as little as 24 hours. As a result, you benefit from greater uptime and higher profitability. 

Whether you need a lining system for new construction or maintenance, our expert team will help you find the best solution for your needs.
