ZCL Receives UL & ULC Listing for Tank Lining System

03 September 2006

Underwriters Laboratories in the United States (UL) have listed ZCL Composites’ Phoenix Lining System and Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) have listed their Lifeliner System in accordance with recognized industry standards.

These internal fibreglass systems allow “in-situ” upgrades of a single wall tank to a secondary contained lining system using a patented three dimensional glass fabric combined with a proprietary state-of-the-art curing system. There is a very large and growing need for upgrading both underground and aboveground liquid storage, driven by environmental legislation and industry standards requiring secondary containment for storage of hazardous

ZCL say that further opportunities exist in the corrosion free storage of new fuels including the new ethanol blended fuels and other blends now being legislated in certain parts of Canada and the USA.

“The potential for generating considerable revenues from this technology is very exciting,” said Ven Côté, President of ZCL Composites Inc. “The UL and ULC approval is a critical step that opens the door to establish the Lifeliner System and the Phoenix Lining System as the preferred method of secondary containment of existing single walled tanks across Canada and the US. This new generation of environmental protection will change our industry, and with this approval, we are very anxious to commence commercial activity in this area.”
