About Us

Since 1987, TAC has specialized in the design, construction and maintenance of abrasion and corrosion-resistant lining systems, utilizing materials such as:

  • Structural ceramic tile
  • Acid/caustic-resistant brick
  • Thermoplastic
  • Polymer-modified concrete
  • Urethane, vinyl ester and rubber membranes
  • Epoxy (or other resin) linings and coatings

TAC offers extensive technical expertise for the inspection, protection and/or rehabilitation of steel or concrete structures. Rehabilitation work includes rebuilding tanks and roof/floor slabs that have been exposed to atmospheric and chemical deterioration. Our engineering skills also allow us to increase design load capacities resulting from modification of floor loads, process conditions or equipment location.

To aid clients maintain, and even extend, the life expectancy of their equipment and vessels, TAC also offers ongoing technical support and inspection services leading to the implementation of a predictive and preventive maintenance program.


We are committed to providing quality services, materials, products and installations to meet the specific needs of our clients, while respecting their budget and schedule, as well as all health, safety and environment (HSE) requirements.
