EMSOL Launches Material to Repair Floating Roof Tanks

EMSOL has launched a revolutionary line to solve and prevent the costly sinking of roofs in floating roof tanks.

EMSOL ASF-2500 provides a safe and permanent flotation system for the pontoons of floating roof tanks.  In addition to providing flotation, EMSOL ASF-2500 also contains a powerful flame retardant and functions as an anti-corrosive to retard deterioration due to corrosion. EMSOL ASF-2500 can also be installed in the empty spaces of double-walled tanks and containers for storage and transport of LNG as thermal insulation.
