In the production
and storage of wine, what is the life expectancy of Munkadur classic
This has yet to be determined. Munkadur, in its current form, was
first used in concrete and mild steel tanks in November 1966. The
linings applied then are still 100% intact.
In the spirit

on mild steel and concrete tanks since November 1967. The original
linings are still 100% intact.
