Secondary Containment Liners

We provide secondary containment systems for Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) using Durable, Flexible, Seamless Polyurea Protective Coatings and Liners. Secondary Containment Liner InstallationSpray-applied polyurea protective coatings and liners outperform most other types of conventional containment systems in USA, can be applied over many types of properly prepared surfaces and substrates. Polyurea liners can be installed quickly and economically in all climate conditions.


The EPA’s SPCC (Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure) regulations require thousands of United States companies in the latter category to put in place plans that ensure containment and other countermeasures to prevent oil spills that could reach navigable waters. Certain types of facilities – aircraft deicing areas, landfills, dike areas around fuel storage tanks in airports and refineries – must anticipate spills and have plans to contain them. Other facilities must have plans that address spill cleanup measures only after a spill has occurred.

Tank Coatings and Liners

Steel and Concrete Above Ground Storage Tanks (AST’s) often need protection from outside traffic and weather elements. Polyurea protective coatings are ideal for applications where deterioration and damage may result to ASTs due to environmental conditions. Since some polyureas are capable of being applied in thicknesses of up to 100 mils [2.5 mm] in a single pass with no appreciable sagging, installation of protective coatings can often be achieved in a single day, with return to service available within 24 hours of completion.

Pipe and Pipeline Coatings and Linings

Pipe and Pipelines pose a challenge for many other protective coating systems that polyurea is able to overcome with relative ease. Because of the rapid gel/cure time of many polyurea systems, as well as the wide range of installation temperatures [from -40°F to +300° F in some cases], often pipes and pipelines do not have to even have to be removed from service while coatings are installed. Additionally, with the advent of Robotic Sprayed-in-place Pipeline systems, the life expectancy of pipes and pipelines can be feasibly extended to 50 years (and beyond).

The Advantages of Polyurea Secondary Containment Liners

Polyurea Secondary Containment Liners

Polyurea is commonly used as a material for lining primary containment tanks as well as a lining system for secondary containment structures. Polyurea offers excellent adhesion to properly prepared surfaces and is used as an alternative to epoxy, polyurethane, fiberglass and other mat reinforced lining systems. Polyurea coatings combine high tensile strength and elongation properties with low permeability and high impact resistance, making them ideal where a tough, flexible (or hard) liner is needed.
