FRP Chemical Tank

Products Details

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics, FRP, is an excellent choice of material for the construction of chemical storage tanks, piping systems, apparatus and other types of industrial process equipment. The FRP material properties beat many conventional materials, such as steel when it comes to chemical and corrosion resistance. Little maintenance and a long product life time, that is what well-engineered FRP equipment promise

Basically, FRP material consists of thermosetting resins and fiberglass. The combination of resin and glass fibers, makes the main ingredient of FRP products. The resin brings the environmental and chemical resistance to the product and is the binder for the glass fiber in the structural laminate. Based on the chemical and environmental circumstances (given by the customer or user), a resin type is selected. In general, Composites constructs an FRP product with three laminates:

  • Corrosion barrier: chemical resistance and temperature resistance
  • Structural laminate: temperature resistance
  • Topcoat: environmental and temperature resistance

Each type of laminate has its specific function, therefore for each laminate a different type of resin could be selected for making a product. In general, Composites works with three types of resin (polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy)

Furthermore, we have different types of glass to be selected, based again: on the application and processes the final product will be used for (different types of veils). With regard to composing these ingredients and choosing the right resins, best winding techniques and glass fiber components in order to guarantee the quality and the benefits of the materials, selecting the right manufacturer is highly important

FRP is known for its mechanical strength and a popular choice when it comes to corrosion resistance. Furthermore is FRP light weight, has excellent temperature-resistant properties, offers thermal insulation and can be formed in complex shapes. FRP products are easy to repair and hardly require any maintenance
