Project Notes
Water Tank Renovation

When the City of Huntsville needed to resurface its 2-million-gallon hydropillar featuring the high school mascot Buzzy the Hornet, the project’s contractor realized significant labor savings by making a beeline to a new, advanced technology coating system from Tnemec Company. “The contractor wanted to apply the intermediate and finish coatings by roller,” reported Tnemec coating consultant Robert Crumbaugh. “The products that had been specified for the tank would have required the contractor to make two applications of both the intermediate and finish coats to achieve the specified film thickness. By replacing those coatings with Tnemec’s new epoxy and polyurethane technologies, the contractor gained the labor-savings alternative he was after.”

Series 740 UVX was selected as the finish coat on the exterior of the Huntsville Hydropillar in Huntsville, TX because of its resistance to abrasion and exterior weathering.
