Possible applications in hydrogen energy

Fuel cells

Durostone® products find application in and around fuel cells due to their electrical insulation, non-corrosiveness, thermal insulation and very high mechanical…

Electrolyser stack

Some electrolysers need alkali-resistant materials, as well as materials that are electrically insulating and mechanically strong. Plastics are the right choice.

Electrolyser header-tanks

GRP header tanks with an inner layer of PP random copolymer - characterised by high resistance to hot, oxygen-saturated alkaline liquids and excellent weldability.

Cryogenic storage tanks

Several products in the Durolight range are successfully used in this application including for liquid hydrogen, stored in these tanks at a dazzling -253 degrees C.

High pressure vessels

Used for for storage and transportation. They are a weight saving solution as a filament wound tank with carbon fibre. Various pressure levels under development.

Benefits of using thermoplastics or composites in hydrogen environments


Our production methods allow resources to be optimised by getting the maximum material benefit out of each product.

Weight reduction

Minimum 30% weight reduction compared to aluminium and more than 75% compared to steel

High mechanical properties

The high mechanical strength offers the advantage that even under high loads, the safety and reliability of the product can be maintained and designs can be optimized.

Close tolerances

Highest precision and accuracy in manufacturing not only offers more safety, but also facilitates the assembly of individual components


As your partner our experts support you to design your application with the right material
