Archco Rigidon Industrial Linings

Products & Services

Archco-Rigidon corrosion resistant systems combine thermosetting resins with various types of reinforcements and fillers to produce tank linings, floor toppings and coatings that are able to resist most environments.

The standard range of products includes glass flake reinforced linings and coatings (which offer maximum protection to steel surfaces), and heavy duty concrete protection systems (which prevent corrosion to tanks, bunds and floors). Custom design of systems is also considered.

All of the tank linings, coatings and flooring systems can be purchased for self installation or as an applied system direct from an Archco-Rigidon Approved Applicator (please consult Denso Australia for advice). Denso Australia can provide technical support, applicator training, contract supervision and inspection services if required.

About the Products

LININGS AND COATINGS

Archco-Rigidon linings and coatings are designed specifically to protect steel and concrete surfaces from aggressive environments. As well as having excellent corrosion resistance, our systems have superior bond and permeation resistance. Where resistance to abrasion, impact and undercutting is important, many of the Archco-Rigidon lining systems greatly exceed the capacity of competitive materials.

The coefficient of expansion is closely matched to that of the substrate, whether steel or concrete, which ensures that the bond is unaffected over a wide range of temperatures.

Most materials are cold curing and can be applied either on site or in works. They are liquid during application, allowing for the quick and easy coating of complex shapes as well as the complete restoration of corroded or pitted surfaces. Most systems will harden rapidly and can be put into light service conditions within a few hours.

FLOORING AND BUND PROTECTION

Archco-Rigidon chemical resistant flooring and bund linings are formulated from high performance resins and are reinforced, for maximum strength, with membranes such as woven glass fabrics.

Their resistance to liquid penetration is so good that they can also be used for lining concrete tanks for the total containment of aggressive chemicals.
