Cooling Tower & Tank Lining and Repair
Exposed to constant moisture and damp, cooling towers and water tanks degrade over time. Whether they’re steel or concrete, microscopic damage can lead to cracks, leaks and eventually external contamination, leading to a multitude of problems.
Strandek® GRP Systems are specialist installers of a variety of surface protection linings and coatings for water and wastewater containment.

We use high-performance surface preparation is available to expose the stronger underlying tank surface prior to application, whilst maintaining its the structural integrity.
Cleaned surfaces are able to help us identify weaker, degraded areas susceptible to or already showing signs of breakdown. In such instances, a variety of substrate-specific sealants can be applied.
High-performance surface protection
Strandek® work with a range of leading suppliers and our technicians are trained installers of a variety of high-performance systems:
GRP lining: glass re-inforced polyster composites are tried and tested lining systems comprised of glass fibre fragments saturated in polyester resin. Adherable to a variety of surfaces, this system quickly hardens, forming a water-tight shield designed to last decades. They create a smooth, waterproof surface that enables easy cleaning and discourages microbial growth. Lifetimes from 10 - 50 years depending on application.
Polyurethane: solvent-free polymer-based application offering greater elongation and flexibility that glass fibre, yet just as tough, making them perfect for structures susceptible to temperature-based expansion and contraction.
Epoxy: solvent free, two component, high build, polyamine adduct cured epoxy paint which cures to a coating with good resistance to freshwater.
Zinc: a single-component zinc-rich coating that acts as a “film galvanising system”. Comprised of 96% zinc and free of toxic components, this system is perfect for steel water tanks and offers performance comparable to hot-dip galvanising.
• High build capability in a single coat
• Excellent corrosion resistance
• Versatile application, brush/ roller or spray
• Potable water approved
Water tank benefits
• Cost-effective solution: avoids tank replacement
• Reduced downtime of production areas
• Long-term corrosion protection
As well as drinking water tanks and fittings, we also provide surface protection for pump casings, internal & external pipes as well as wastewater & effluent systems.
