What is Acothane DW

Acothane DW is a protective water tank coating that is suitable for all liquid retaining structures. The coating is solvent-free and made from polyurethane as it is the most effective product against both corrosion and erosion. Polyurethane coatings are suitable for all types of water and liquid retaining structures including concrete, GRP and steel water tanks. Acothane DW coatings have a great history with the protective coating tried tested against all types of water tanks, to make relining jobs much easier for water tank lining companies.

How Does Acothane DW Work

As a tank lining solution, Acothane works by providing a long term solution as a water tank coating. With the product being a watertight solution, the coating is the most durable option when relining tanks or water vessels. Another benefit of the lining is that it will stand the test of time with an excellent life expectancy of around 25 years. So even if you believe your water tank is unusable after being affected by corrosion or erosion, Acothane DW will solve all of your issues and bring your water retaining structure back to life again.
