What are finishing tanks? 

Also known as a dip or dipping tank, a finishing tank is a container aimed to hold a solution into which an object is fully or partially immersed. It is a necessary part of many industrial processes that involve altering the surface or changing the character of an object, be it paint dipping, electroplating, anodizing, tanning, stripping, flow coating and more. For that reason, there are numerous multiple applications for a broad variety of industries including; 

  • Automobile
  • Agriculture
  • Pharmaceuticals and Laboratories
  • Food Industry
  • Arts and Graphics
  • Metallurgical

Dipping tanks are used to bathe anything that requires to be cleaned or coated. The liquid solution is often made of hazardous chemicals that are either flammable, corrosive, or toxic. Such is the case of the product elaborated for Procoat Industries which protects the interior of an acid tank. According to their needs, we delivered a customized liner with the following specifications: 

  • Material: Polypropylene 10mm Grey (Biege)
