Painting industrial gas, propane, or fuel tanks requires special expertise. Jobs can be dangerous if not done by professionals with years of experience. Surfaces must be thoroughly prepared, include removal of any rust and corrosion and may require abrasive blasting and manual sanding, grinding, or scrubbing before any gas tank paint or fuel tank paint is applied.

When you work with Ghaster Painting & Coatings, you get more than 45 years of experience tackling some of the toughest industrial painting jobs in the Southwest. Our painting crews are highly-trained and have the skills and expertise needed to do the job right.

Industrial Painting Solutions for Gas Tanks and Fuel Tanks

Painting gas tanks is about more than just applying a coat of paint. The work has to be done methodically and safely. Industrial paint solutions for Arizona gas tanks require years of experience to do the job right.

This includes safety training and taking all necessary precautions to secure the job site and protect our team and anyone on-site. Working around fuel tanks requires additional safety measures.

While our team works efficiently, we will take our time to properly prepare the surface of your gas tanks or fuel tanks. This may include abrasive cleaning and blasting as well as chemical treatments to remove rust and corrosion that can damage your gas tanks. Then we will use the right gas tank paint to protect your storage tanks for years to come.

We use high-quality, non-corrosive paints designed to reduce stress and handle the intense heat of Arizona summers.

Industrial Painting Solutions for Propane Tanks

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has specific requirements for maintaining propane tanks, including the paints and coatings used. Because of the exposure to high heat in our area, industrial paint solutions in Arizona for propane tanks include using heat-reflective colors and making sure you are diligent about surface preparation before painting begins.

Preparation includes performing surface sanding, grinding, or abrasive blasting to remove any rust, corrosion, staining, and dirt. You need thorough degreasing and cleaning to make sure coatings will adhere to the surface. You also need the right paints and coatings for your painted propane tanks to ensure long-term protection.
