High-Temperature Secondary Containment Coatings

“BCI industrial spray 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 stormwater and runoff control with oil leak protection.

System Highlights

  • PE-designed and approved
  • Flexible design around equipment, penetrations and supports
  • Directly built over earthen substrates
  • Long life expectancy
  • Engineered design available for unique/non-conforming applications
