American Fiberglass Tank Repair
Fiberglass / Composite Tanks - A Growth Industry
The need for professional fiberglass tank repair and maintenance services has increased five fold over the last twenty-five years. This is due to the rapid growth of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) tanks used in chemical plants, waterworks and wastewater treatment facilities, on-site potable water storage systems and other commercial and industrial applications.
American Fiberglass Tank Repair (AFTR) works with custom blended isophthalic and terephthalic polyester, vinylester, and epoxy resins, as well as over 45 fiberglass mat, chopped strand, Nexus, Harlar and carbon veil laminates to provide cutting edge materials for their field crews use in repairing and relining corrosion coats on in-service fiberglass tanks.

Inspection Services for Fiberglass Tanks
Even though many of the service requests AFTR gets are related to apparent problems or elective changes to vessels, the inspection of fiberglass / composite tanks is an integral part of a facility's preventive maintenance program. Because of the unique materials and components used to create these tanks, breach of containment can begin long before it is apparent that there is a problem. Surveying the interior corrosion coat, internal body and exterior shell of a fiberglass tank, as well as the nozzles and other incorporated interfaces, is fundamental in a comprehensive inspection survey. AFTR inspection personnel include our Customer Support Engineers who create and direct the inspection protocols, as well as work with our crews.
