Introduction to FRP Tank Lining and When to Consider Tank Refurbish
FRP tank linings are composed of 3 layers between the chemicals which your tank holds and the structure of the tank itself. See image left for information regarding the composition and role of the different layers which are intended to protect the structure of the tank from chemical infiltration.
Chemical penetration into the steructural layer must be avoided due to the low chemical resistance of the structural layer.
Regular inspection of tank linings is extremely important to prevent premature degradation of the structure of the tank.
