 Hard chrome plating solutions are very aggressive at the upper and lower solution levels of the tank. As solution evaporates, the concentration of chrome increases. The concentrated chrome vapors condensate in the freeboard area and attack traditional PVC liners. In order to solve this problem and extend the life of hard chrome liners, Witt Lining Systems innovated adding a "skirt" of either PVC lining or LFP CrossFilmTM material.

A skirt is a secondary layer of material that covers the upper and lower solution levels and protects the main PVC liner from chemical exposure. A skirt made from PVC will act as a sacrificial piece of material, but it will degrade over time and eventually expose the main liner to chemical attack. A skirt made from LFP CrossFilmTM is chemically inert. LFP skirts don't break down over time, so they eliminate exposure of the PVC liner in the interface area, giving the tank liner its full service life.

Couple the LFP CrossFilmTM skirt with the unmatched service life of a Koroseal® PVC liner and you have the longest lasting drop in liner available for hard chrome service. This longer service life means the associated time and costs of changing a liner out are fewer and provides a lower operating cost versus liners with no skirts.
