Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating that has high durability, is resistant to many corrosive reagents, and is excellent at sealing out moisture. It is commonly used in marine and industrial environments. It’s primarily applied to steel to protect it from rust and corrosion. It is frequently seen on steel boat hulls, underground water and petroleum tanks and pipelines, offshore oil rigs, and dam gates. Our Coal Tar Epoxy underground tornado shelter is made of 10 gauge sheet metal. All welds are leak-tested to guarantee they will not allow ground water to seep into the shelter. After the shelter is fabricated, we apply a thick coating of Coal Tar Epoxy to the exterior of the shelter. The Coal Tar Epoxy bonds to the steel and functions to protect the exterior of the steel shield from rust and corrosion. The inside of the storm shield is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the inside from corrosion and rust.
