frp repairs

Fiberglass reinforced plastic – or FRP – is a state-of-the-art material that has countless industrial applications. FRP wraps are highly resistant to corrosion and can be used as liners storage tanks, while an FRP duct can withstand extreme temperatures with little trouble. FRP also requires little maintenance and is relatively inexpensive compared to steel and similar materials. This also means that FRP repairs are simple and easy to complete. Let’s take a look at some of the more common industrial uses of FRP. Read more »

FRP repairs

Concrete, fiberglass, and steel tanks are used in various industries to store water, chemicals, and other materials. As sturdy and reliable as these materials often are, they are still subject to corrosion over time, which leads to costly and dangerous leaks. Corroded or otherwise damaged tank linings need to be repaired, and the most efficient way to do that is with fiber-reinforced plastic, or FRP repairs. FRP is a composite material made from a polymer matrix that is reinforced with fibers. FRP used in tank lining repairs is usually in the form of an epoxy resin that can be applied to the lining or exterior of a tank to strengthen it. When it is applied to the inside of a tank, it acts as a highly durable moisture barrier that can significantly slow down corrosion and prevent even the most corrosive and caustic chemicals from leaking.

Fiberglass Tank Linings Improved with FRP

Over time, storage tank linings tend to face the issue of corrosion, and that becomes an issue even quicker for tanks storing harsh substances. But even water can be an issue: Water & Wastes Digest’s Bob Hummel writes that salt- and chloride-containing water settling in the bottom of a tank may eat away at it while spawning an electrolyte that exacerbates the problem.

A Lot Can Go Wrong with Fiberglass Repair Without Knowledge and Care

Repairing fiberglass can give it new life, but it is not as easy as sticking a patch on a crack. If the right care is not taken, it can result in further damage or an incorrect repair that has to be redone later on. Not only does this add to the time needed to take care of the repair, but wastes materials and effort, as well. Here are some things that can happen to cause problems with fiberglass repair.

Storage tanks are widely used in many industries for the storage of fluids such as water, petroleum products, and chemicals. They are constructed of concrete, steel, polyethylene, and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP.) During the last two decades, the use of FRP has grown dramatically in the number of new vessels and for tank repairs. Since tank leaks can cause problems including lost revenue from downtime, lost liquid revenue costs, and environmental issues, it is important to call experienced FRP professionals to deal with critical tank leak repair work to solve issues and prevent leaks.

Save Time and Extend Storage Tank Life with FRP Wraps

Repairing aging concrete infrastructure requires the striking of a delicate balance: The repairs need to be done in a reliable fashion, yet if they become too expensive, they can wreck the budget of an industrial or municipal project. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites can help strike that balance, delivering successful results at an affordable rate. Read more »

Storage tanks are an important feature of virtually every production and manufacturing facility around the country. They are used to store such things as petroleum products, various chemicals, acids, water, and waste matter. Many storage tanks are built from metal, but some are made of fiberglass. No matter the construction, no tank will last forever. A tank may experience the natural effects of corrosion, a failure in the tank structure, or the tank coating or may need to be repurposed for some other tank contents, requiring a change of lining. When tank rehabilitation is called for, sandblasting may be required in the restoration process. Then, it is time to call in an expert sandblasting Bay Area company. Read more »
