Since 2006, Tnemec has celebrated the innovative and creative uses of its coatings on water tanks with the annual Tank of the Year contest. Each year, tanks of all varieties from across the U.S. and Canada are narrowed down to determine the most impressive coatings projects in the water tank industry.
All nominations will be placed online for voting to determine the People's Choice tank. The winner of the popular vote will then be considered for the official Tank of the Year crown alongside 11 other Tnemec-determined runners-up.
The two water tanks in Katy,Texas, may vary in size and location, but their designs are almost identical. Both tanks were painted with a vivid new design created by long-time mural artists, Rolf and Peter Goetzinger, incorporating Canada and snow geese and a large, clean logo reading, “Welcome to Katy.” The City of Katy wanted to make sure that their water tanks’ design would last, so they specified the murals to be completed using a full Tnemec coating system, including a moisture-cured, zinc-rich primer and a high-performance fluoropolymer finish, Series 700 HydroFlon, coatings for excellent color and gloss retention.
