Extorial view of the bioethanol tanks 5 years after coating

A major project from 2008:
Internal and external coating of 2 bioethanol storage tanks

In 2008, the formerly company “Prokon Nord Energiesysteme” GmbH in Stade/Germany (acquisition by “N.prior energy GmbH” in 2010) built 2 huge tanks for bioethanol. The tanks have a height of 16.5 m and a diameter of 16 m. Because of the close proximity of the city Stade to the rivers „Schwinge“ and „Elbe“ as well as the North Sea the air is moistly and saline. Thus, corrosion of steel is extremely accelerated.

For corrosion protection of the tanks, the internal and external coating was conducted with high quality coating systems from Ceramic Polymer GmbH. Recently, the exterior walls of the tanks were inspected, five years after application of the coating.

The application of the external coating:
Extreme demands caused by an increased risk of corrosion

The installation of the big storage tanks took several weeks. Due to the salt-laden air the non-protected steel already corroded extremely. The blasting and external coating had to be carried out fast and accurately.

Ceramic Polymer’s premium protection systems for external applications

Ceramic-Polymer STP is a two pack ceramic composite coating with specific epoxy matrix and active corrosion inhibitive pigments, which increase the combined effects of the coating additives. This product can be applied as a primer or as a stand- alone system and provides:

• Excellent corrosion protection
• High impact and abrasion resistance
• Very good adhesion
• 1-coat system
• Completion of ISO standard 12944-2 / Class C4 & C5

Top Coat:
Proguard 169 is a highly cross-linked 2-component polyurethane top layer with outstanding performance and durability characteristics. It provides excellent physical properties:

• Extreme UV-stability and weather resistance
• Excellent resistance against abrasion
• High chemical resistance
• 1-coat system, fast curing
• Completion of ISO standard 12944-2 / Class C4 & C5

(strong resistance for industrial sectors, onshore and offshore areas in aggressive and saline environments.)

The picture shows the exterior view of the thanks after 5 years!

The coating is still intact. No weathering effects
or corrosion damages
occurred on the exterior walls of the tanks.

The Ceramic Polymer GmbH produces high-performance coatings with integrated micro ceramic particles for different fields of application. The properties of the ceramic – chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and weathering stability – justify the high quality of the coating systems. By extra integration of microscopic special particles, Ceramic Polymer GmbH generates coating products which provide the highest protection properties.
