GL Technologies has an extensive product range suitable for use on the wide range of pr°Cesses and operating temperatures ass°Ciated with the chemical and petr°Chemical industry. Some of the world’s largest oil refineries and chemical plants have relied on GL’s protective coatings in both new construction and maintenance, to provide vital corrosion protection to minimize unplanned shutdowns and corrosion failures.

Features and benefits of GL’s solutions for chemical industries:

  1. Ultimate safety: Most GL’s coating and lining products are 100% solids, zero V.O.C, non flammable, low or no odor, non carcinogenic, containing no coal tar or other hazardous chemical ingredients, complied with worker’s safety and environmental regulations and requirements;
  2. Money saving due to high throughput and quick application: GL’s main coating and lining products can set at virtually any climate temperatures, winter and summer. Features such as direct-to-metal (DTM), high build with a single pass or unlimited build with a single coat multi-pass application, fast cure and standard cure requiring no post curing, and high hardness and quick film property development mean a high throughput and time saving in your coating/lining project using GL’s products. Shop coated/lined tanks can be shipped out within minutes or hours, while field coated/lined tanks can be put into service within hours rather than days;
  3. User friendly applications: As a result of our special engineering formulation technology and our No. 1 design criterion – “Making our customers succeed, rather than just meeting their requirements or denying their problems”, GL’s 100% solids polyurethane and epoxy coatings are the most user friendly products available in today’s 100% solids coating market. Unique formulating properties such as 1:1 mixing ratio by volume, balanced viscosities, easy dynamic mixing, wider off-ratio tolerant range, hydrophobic molecules, edge retention, and longer recoat capability are available with most GL’s coating/lining products. These properties are needed particularly for projects at extreme harsh conditions such as field conditions, extreme hot or cold climates, complex tank structures, difficult to access, low equipment maintenance, etc.
  4. Powerful performance: GL uses the industry’s toughest testing methods and criteria to qualify its lining products on chemical and corrosion resistance. For exterior application, Florida weathering testing is used to ensure PPC’s external coating products to possess superior UV and weather resistance.
