Fiberglass Tank Lining
Fiberglass tank relining is essential to maintain the integrity and longevity of these containers, especially when storing corrosive products. Over time, even mild concentrations of corrosive substances can compromise the interior corrosion barriers of fiberglass tanks, leading to containment failure.
To prevent such failures, we employ cutting-edge techniques utilizing compatible glass media, veil systems, and application-specific polymer matrixes. By applying FRP linings to the tank interiors before the corrosive products permeate the underlying structural body, we can effectively safeguard against containment failure.
In many instances, even if a fiberglass tank has experienced breaches in its corrosion barrier, the overall structural integrity of the vessel remains intact. This intact structure serves as an ideal substrate for our skilled field personnel to fabricate a new corrosion layer, significantly extending the tank’s service life.
Fiberglass-reinforced plastic laminates, initially used in the early 1900s, have evolved into sophisticated corrosion-resistant fiberglass (CR FRP) and abrasion-resistant fiberglass (AR FRP) composite systems. These advanced composite vessels now rival and, in certain environments, surpass stainless steel and other thermoset plastic tanks in terms of corrosive liquid containment.
In cases where a change in the stored product becomes necessary, we offer multiple product-specific corrosion layer systems that are compatible with substances or temperature environments for which the tank was not originally designed. This flexibility allows seamless transitions between different liquid products.
Our expertise extends to refurbishing fiberglass tanks used in various industries such as water, wastewater, and chemical processing. Aggressive chemicals like sodium hypochlorite (NaOCI) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) are frequently stored in fiberglass tanks, and our field personnel have refurbished hundreds of these tanks, ensuring their optimal performance and safety.
We provide tank lining services specifically designed for older fiberglass tanks used to store chemicals, petrochemicals, oil-based products, and waste streams. Many older fiberglass tanks may not be compatible with newer chemicals and petrochemicals, making them susceptible to failure when used for storing these substances. With our reliable tank lining solutions, we offer a reliable and durable option for retrofitting and upgrading these tanks to meet modern requirements.
With our comprehensive fiberglass tank relining services, utilizing state-of-the-art materials and expert craftsmanship, we ensure the longevity, safety, and compatibility of fiberglass tanks with various corrosive liquids and environments.
