Cotac expands tank lining service

Hoyer Group subsidiary adds Advanced Polymer Coatings linings for highly corrosive products to its tank container and trailer service offerings in Antwerp, Belgium

Cotac, part of the Germany-based Hoyer Group, recently expanded its tank lining service for new and existing customers.

The company already repairs tanks and technical components using spray-on and rubberizing coatings. Now, Cotac can transform complete stainless steel tank containers into specialty tanks for highly corrosive products by applying Advanced Polymer Coatings (APC) tank linings at its workshop in Antwerp, Belgium.

“Only a few service providers offer repair facilities for these special tanks,” Harry Pepels, Cotac director, said in a news release. “We have already been carrying out repairs of spray-on and rubber coatings for six years. We can now offer APC tank coatings as a full-service provider. This is something special and is in demand worldwide.

“We are delighted that we can expand our service offer for the Hoyer Group and are also able to offer it to new customers at the Antwerp site.”

The spray coating is applied in a three-stage process conforming to the highest standards and quality, Cotac said. The company specializes in ISO tank containers but also services tank trailers and IBCs. Coating technical components rounds off Cotac’s one-stop Antwerp services, which include cargo tank modifications, coatings, and repairs; along with heating, cooling, and other depot services.

“We are professionals in everything we do, and we design our business to be safe, secure, and simple for our customers,” Pepels said. “That is our concern.

“As a result of receiving approval from the material manufacturer Advanced Polymer Coatings, we can now fully offer APC’s tank linings completely here, thus doubling the offer and capacities for this special service in Europe from the previous situation of one provider to the current two. This newly arrived, first-class polymer lining technology now helps our customers to safely store, protect, and transport highly corrosive chemicals.”

Cotac’s Antwerp location is adjacent to the Benelux ports and chemical cluster in North Rhine-Westphalia.

“First-class material from APC, the technical experience of Cotac, and the engineering and operational staff of the Hoyer Group round off the comprehensive service being offered and create added value for our customers,” said Andreas Essinger, Hoyer executive director for global sales.
