Kentain Products Ltd.
Kentain flexible liners are the better way to solve the problem of aged, cracked and leaking epoxy and bonded tank liners. With over three decades of success in the flexible tank liner industry, Kentain has built a reputation for excellence and durability. The maintenance-free liner lowers operating costs and has a life expectancy of between 15 and 20 years. In some cases the liners have performed for much longer than that.
There had to be a better way and flexible PVC lining was and remains today the answer. Ken Lippert, after years of working in the woodstave tank lining industry decided in 1976 to start his own company. He knew that flexible PVC liners were the cost effective solution to the on-going challenge of containing liquids, particularly corrosive and dangerous materials.
Ken built Kentain Products Limited on a simple philosophy: “build leak free, resilient prefabricated liners that meet the customers’ needs and the company will grow.”
And grow it did. Within several years Ken had moved out of the garage and into a larger manufacturing space. In 1986 Ken and his brother Glen built their own 6,000 square foot plant in Kitchener. The new facility allowed Kentain to take on much larger projects.
In 1993 Ken retired, selling the business to his brother Glen, and in 2008 Glen did the same selling the company to his son Scott, keeping it a family run business. Today Scott, and vital employees, Nathan Steffler and Wray Hussey, are the key people in continuing the Kentain tradition of manufacturing and installing the best flexible PVC tank liners in Canada.
Custom Designed & Dielectrically Welded
Every Kentain liner is custom manufactured to your specific tank size and shape. The sheets of PVC flexible liner material are dielectrically welded together to ensure a strong, leak-proof permanent seal on the seams. The appurtenances and manhole fittings are attached to the body of the liner providing a complete liquid and vapour tight, one-piece structure. The Kentain liner doubles your toxic containment factor by becoming the main containment while the tank becomes the secondary containment structure. As an added safety factor a leak detection system alerts the tank operator of a leak, should one occur.
