Containers, tanks and silos are used around the world to store a wide array of materials. The containers protect the stored materials from the environment, but the containers should also be protected from the effects of the mostly harsh weather conditions they are in.

Leaking storage tanks, whether above or below ground, can pollute the environment, threaten public health, and lead to billions of dollars in direct and indirect costs.

Containers are exposed to various corrosive elements such as airborne salt and industrial pollutants, rain and saltwater.

Transport damage during loading onto and unloading off trucks, train beds and ships breaches the paint coating, which contributes further to corrosion.

The result is shortened container life and high costs for container repair or replacement. The main reason for storage tank failure is corrosion.

Fortunately, corrosion prevention technology exists, which can protect storage tanks and keep them structurally sound for years to come. ZINGA offers a sustainable long-lasting protection to containers, tanks and silos by creating an active, galvanic protection to the underlying steel.
