Industrial Tank Coatings for Steel, Metal & Concrete Tanks: A Case Study

Industrial Tank Coatings Portland Oregon

When Amalgamated Sugar of Portland, Oregon contacted Parker Smith of Smith & Company Painting about their problem with rust and corrosion of 2 metal storage tanks and a concrete silo, Smith was ready to offer his skill and expertise to help.

Smith and Company Painting offer storage tank coatings to protect steel, metal, and concrete tanks from rust and corrosion. These types of tanks need protective coating systems for long-lasting performance.

The Amalgamated Sugar facility needed rust and corrosion removal for 2 metal storage tanks and a concrete silo along with protective coatings for all three structures plus painting of one of their industrial buildings. Smith and Company Painting took care of their prep and painting needs, including rust & corrosion removal, sandblasting, power washing, epoxy coatings, and painting.

Over a 6-week period, the expert painters worked hard to ensure the job got done right to prevent future problems like chipping or fading paint.
