The cargo to be carried would effect the necessary solution and thickness required. Typical cargoes might include the following: hydrogen peroxide, acid, sodium hydroxides, corn syrup, tallow, propylene glycol, alcohols, naptha, drilling fluids, molten sulphur, asphalt, adhesives, monomers, isocyanates, TDI, Gas Pressure cars – anhydrous ammonia, LPG, LNG, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide or Hopper Cars transporting flour, starch, plastics. The best approach would be to coat for the harshest cargo and rest assured that all other cargo would be covered. Thickness could range from 1/16″ to 1/2″. If there is a cargo more damaging than what has been considered, it may be necessary to engineer multiple layering and reinforcement materials into the final solution. If during R&D it is determined that anything greater is needed we will immediately notify our clients.
