Why Choose FRP for Water Tank Liners and Tank Repairs

Metal storage tanks are extremely susceptible to corrosion, and there will come a time when they will need to be repaired or replaced. Replacing a storage tank is sometimes unavoidable, but it is also a much more costly option. In most cases, it’s best to stick with water tank repair unless the bottom of a tank is no longer salvageable. This usually involves installing new water tank liners, which have evolved over the years to be far stronger and more resistant to heat and corrosion than they’ve been in the past. This is largely thanks to 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.
