    December 02, 2015
    Xypex products were chosen for the repair and restoration of the glycol (de-icing) containment tanks at the Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Canada. Project included the repair of cracks, pressure washing all surfaces for removal of existing coatings and the application of Xypex Concentrate and Modified to 40,000 sq. ft. of tank walls and floors.
