Coal Tar Epoxy is a heavy duty, high build protective coating that has high durability, is resistant to most 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 vessel 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. Following the shelter is fabricated, we apply a thick coating of Coal Tar Epoxy to the outside of the shelter. The Coal Tar Epoxy bonds to the steel and serves to protect the exterior of the steel shelter from rust and corrosion. The inside of the storm shelter is painted with red oxide primer paint to protect the steel on the interior from corrosion and rust.
