Acid Protection


The use of chemicals is common in the manufacture of most materials. Chemicals with pH's at each end of the range can have a devastating effect on any surface they come in contact with. Acid proofing containment assets is a specialised skill that involves the use of high performance coatings and lining systems. These systems range from vinyl esters, flexible modified epoxies, elastomers and polyureas to HDPE liners and acid resistant bricks.

Detailed design and precision installation is critical in the protection of steel and concrete substrates from chemical attack. Duratec has many years of experience in the specification and installation of chemical proof lining systems.
