Fiberglass Tanks

Time to Read: 1m 44s

Most fiberglass tanks are manufactured using the highest quality corrosion-resistant reinforced plastic (FRP) materials. Products include process vessels, chemical storage tanks, foul air ducting, piping and more. Tanks should be designed and fabricated to your specifications in accordance with ASTM or other world industrial standards. This can be done using the highest performance, high temperature epoxy vinyl ester resins. Common applications include acids, alkali, bleaches, brines, chlorides, solvents, oxidizers and more.

Shop manufacturing is possible up to about fourteen feet (~four meters) diameter using either a filament winding or spray-up process. The thermoset resins used in both filament wound and spray-up fabrication commonly include polyesters, vinyl esters and isophthalics. Filament winding consists winding resin-impregnated glass fibers in predetermined patterns. After the laminate layers are wound-on, the tank shell is allowed to cure at room temperature before secondary bonding operations begin. Spray-up is an open molding fabrication method used to make tank bottoms and dished tops and par
