Corrosion is a chemical reaction that occurs on the surface of different materials, especially metals. Most people are familiar with rust, which is probably the most common type of corrosion. Corrosion is considered a natural process that transforms the metal into undesirable substances. When you have storage tanks, rust is an enemy. Fiberglass liner repair and fiberglass tank liners can help prevent corrosion and keep your equipment in service longer. Read more »

These days, most companies use fiberglass-reinforced polymer, or FRP, for their water tank liners. FRP was introduced in the 1950s as a way to repair tank bottoms that had corroded. The material could not only bridge gaps that had formed in the bottoms of tanks, but they provided protection from internal corrosion as well. This made FRP wraps useful in tanks that were being used to contain more caustic chemicals. Read more »
