One of the main reasons why a company will be supplying its industrial clients with rubber lining has to do with providing them with corrosion resistance. The rubber lined pipe, stack, hopper, secondary containment liner, amongst others, has several primary features for its users. One of the features has already been mentioned, but just to reiterate, it is the provision of corrosion resistance. A second feature of rubber lining equipment has to do with reducing users’ maintenance challenges and downtimes.
All the apparatus mentioned thus far does form part of secondary lining systems. The secondary lining is made to protect the original surface or material. Secondary containment liners are necessary for the maintenance of the entire tank or containment system. The rubberized corrosion resistant materials are strong, durable and flexible. They are able to withstand the invasions usually expected from water, particularly if it’s been polluted or contaminated, and chemicals. Apart from its ability to resist corrosion and reduce maintenance work, rubber lining is sanitary and attractive for human use.
The rubber used is also resistant to abrasion. And in order to achieve the strength and durability of the rubber, the process of high pressure vulcanization is applied. In most industrial and public infrastructure settings, rubber lining remains necessary. Metal and other materials will continue to break down when liquid or moisture within a system is allowed to enter and cause corrosion. Through this invasion, contaminants are able to reach product material, causing all kinds of issues that negatively impact the integrity of the products.
But when a secondary tank lining is made, sealing work and the provided resistance will ensure that the products’ integrity is maintained. In lowering maintenance requirements, the additional labor of repainting and re-sealing work will no longer be required.
