(Sandefjord, September 16, 2019). Jotun, one of the global leaders in paints and coatings, is launching TankFast, a range of tank linings formulated to allow tanks to return back to service quicker than ever before, with excellent chemical resistance capabilities in the refinery, petrochemical and chemical industry.

Peak performance

“To optimize earnings our customers need to ensure tanks are fully operational,” comments, Miles Buckhurst, Global Concept Director - HPI, Jotun. “Even with spare tanks, storage and transportation flexibility and profit potential are diminished when one or more has to be taken out of service. At Jotun we have recognized that the industry needs to keep tanks in service, and our answer is TankFast, allowing tanks to return to service faster than ever before while retaining the optimal level of protection. We see this a clear win-win for our global customer base within these highly competitive segments – segments where peak efficiency and productivity are absolutely critical to success.”

Fast-tracking efficiency

TankFast consists of a range of specially tailored products, such as Tankguard SF, allowing for wet-on-wet application, and Tankguard Plus, allowing for up to 50% faster paint application and curing – giving significantly shorter shutdowns, getting tanks back into service quicker than ever before.

Bottom line boost

“The business case for these products is crystal clear,” Michelle C. Ystad Eriksen, Global Marketing Manager – HPI, adds. “If we consider, for example, a large refinery with a capacity of 400 000 barrels per day – if that has the possibility to return tanks to operation after two days instead of a week then it can refine an additional 324 million litres of crude oil. This is the power of TankFast.

“It demonstrates that the choice of tank linings isn’t simply a maintenance issue, it’s a core business decision, with real impact on bottom lines. We’re looking forward to helping our customers realize this potential.”
