Extend the Service Life of Water Storage Tanks -- Using the Revised AWWA D102 Standard

Abstract: Water systems often need to recoat reservoirs or elevated storage tanks. By referring to a new coating system included in the revised AWWA D102 Standard "Coating Steel Water-Storage Tanks," painting contractors and specifiers discover they can offer tank owners the benefits of faster dry and cure, low VOC and HAPS, lowered maintenance costs for their water storage tanks. This presentation will discuss the revised AWWA D102 Standard and two new exterior coating systems. Picture images of tank-painting projects will be included in this PowerPoint presentation. The author is a member of the AWWA D102 Revision Task Force.
