Ensuring Compatibility: Sherwin-Williams Tests Linings for Bio-Fuels

Sherwin-Williams is taking a proactive approach to the growing bio-fuel market.  For the past two years, they’ve been conducting a comprehensive testing program to ensure the compatibility of their internal lining products with various bio-fuels.  This research is critical because bio-fuels, derived from sustainable sources like used cooking oils, have different properties compared to traditional crude oil. These differences can impact the performance and longevity of tank linings, making compatibility testing essential.
