Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Tanks | FRP Tanks & Vessels

Benefits of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Tanks vs. Metal Tanks

  • No rust or need for painting or reclading
  • Heat, stress, conductivity, and climatic conditions not a problem
  • Superior corrosion resistance in many applications versus rubber lined and bare metal
  • 1/2 the price of stainless steel & 5-10 times the lifespan in some highly corrosive environments
  • Lightweight & easy to handle – 2/3 weight of aluminum, 1/4 weight of steel
  • Extensive use of FRP by major companies due to resin improvements relative to heat, impact & crack resistance
  • More slip resistant than metal
  • Design freedom
  • Non-conductive – prevents shorting out electrical equipment
  • Ignition resistant with brominated materials
  • Good insulating material with reasonable thermal expansion properties
  • Efficient heat tracing from the bottom of tank using Plasta-Therm®
  • Complies with FDA 177.2420
  • No flammability concerns or welding hassles
  • No trace metal contamination in antiperspirants, shampoos, etc.
  • Absorbs equipment vibration with adhesive strength and elongation of resins
