Tnemec continues to be the leader in providing high-performance coatings solutions with Aerolon: the first fluid-applied coating to act as an effective thermal break. This innovative solution prevents the effects of thermal bridging and controls condensation w... more.
Series 391 Tank Armor is a new chemical-resistant formulation developed by Tnemec and extensively tested for severe chemical immersion environments, according to Gary Zinn, Sales Director - Industrial Markets, for Tnemec."Series 391Tank Armor meets the requirements of customers in the oil and gas service industries, such as rapid return to service, one-coat application, fast-cure, high-build capabilities, ease of application and physical properties for long-term durability," Zinn explained.
"Last year was a very depressed market because of falling commodity prices," recalled Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec Company, Inc.
With the current resumption of drilling activity, Zinn anticipates increased market demand for maintenance supplies, such as lubricants, pressure valves, sections of pipe, seals, gaskets, connections and industrial coatings provided by oilfield supply houses. "The 2HS is a very high solids version of Series 2H Hi-Build Tneme-Gloss," Zinn explained. "It's VOC compliant anywhere in North America except the Los Angeles basin, and is available in all oil field standard colors." "Ease of application and performance on marginally prepared surfaces is especially important to the people who maintain these drilling rigs on-site," Zinn added. "Product availability is also important. Each drilling rig manufacturer has its own color designation, so it's critical to have the right products in the right colors available at a moment's notice in case a rig goes down and it needs immediate attention." At recent meetings in Houston, Zinn found a mood of optimism he has not seen for several months. "The oilfield is a very cyclic market," Zinn added.

"Under the agreement, Tnemec is the sole owner of this technology, which will be marketed under the new Tank Armor brand name," according to Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec.
"The lining technology is exactly the same and we will continue to use the same Tnemec product series." Tnemec has manufactured and distributed Glass Armor epoxy linings for aboveground storage applications under an exclusive licensing agreement with Bridgeport Chemical. "The acquisition of these linings allows us to continue to provide superior resistance to chemicals and physical abuse for the interior of storage tanks in more aggressive operating conditions," Zinn explained. "When properly selected and applied, high-build linings can protect the interior and exterior of ASTs from corrosion caused by a wide range of aggressive acids and petrochemical solutions including sweet and sour crude oil, gasoline, diesel and bio-diesel fuels, solvents and oxygenation additives like ethanol, to name a few," Zinn noted. "Exterior coatings are specially formulated to protect the outer shell of tanks, piping and exposed structural steel against ultraviolet (UV) light degradation, abrasion, corrosive fumes and weathering," Zinn added.
"The industry is shifting more and more to 100 percent solids technology," acknowledged Gary Zinn, sales director, Industrial Markets for Tnemec.
"We've also successfully tested Series 350 with B100, which is pure biodiesel manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant greases," Zinn noted. "The criteria for selecting a holding primer is it's resistance to the fuel or chemical being stored, as well as temperature conditions of the steel and whether the tank is insulated or uninsulated," Zinn shared. "Holiday testing is critical," Zinn acknowledged.
