The City of Jacksonville Beach was in need of  preventing rust and protecting their gas and diesel holding tanks on their property. They needed a painting contractor with experience in painting industrial structures. One that would ensure that the proper coatings and safety standards would beImage_2016-03-01_06-51-47.jpeg used during the job and also stay compliant with EPA standards. When it came down to a decision, the team here at Performance Painting was deemed the best fit for the task.

Our team began the project in late February. The first task was to rinse clean all of the areas receiving paint with a bleach solution, and then  use hand tools to remove all loose and failing paint. After every surface had been prepared, the crew began  priming and painting the two fuel tanks. We used Sherwin Williams Macropoxy 646 primer on the first coat. This fast drying epoxy primer is perfect for industrial exposures due to its resistance to chemicals and abrasions. After the primer had dried, one coat of Sherwin Williams Acrolon 218 HS was applied to the fuel tanks. The fast drying urethane is ideal for industrial structures and provides color and gloss retention for exterior exposure.
