Safely storing chemical media - PE 100 Materials

Tanks for storing chemical media must meet high requirements: They must be perfectly safe even at aggressive media, high thermal stress and intense UV radiation. We offer a great selection of plastics specifically for the construction of round and rectangular tanks. They are particularly chemicals-resilient,heat-resilient and easy to process. We will gladly advise you in selecting the right materials for your application. For construction of your tanks, we offer a comprehensive database of chemicals-resilient plastics and the tried and tested tank calculation program RITA.

Your advantages

  • High process safety thanks to outstanding chemicals resilience
  • Form masses with DIBt-approval
  • Long service life
  • Suitable for outdoor use thanks to high UV resilience
  • Very easily weldable and processable

Typical areas of application

  • Storage tanks for different chemical media
  • Rectangular tanks
  • Round tanks
  • Roofs and bottoms for tanks
  • In liners in composite tanks

Product examples

Round tank for hydrochloric acid

Polystone® G black B 100-RC (PE-HD) is particularly chemicals- and tension-crack-resilient. Thus, it is outstandingly suitable for construction of round tanks for aggressive chemical media such as hydrochloric acid. Only raw materials approved for tank construction will be used.

Polystone® P CubX®

Polystone® P CubX® is a tank construction sheet featuring a unique inner cube structure developed for rectangular tanks. The innovative design combines light weight and ease of handling with very high longitudinal and transverse rigidity. Depending on the size of the tank, steel reinforcements can be completely or significantly reduced. The time savings in tank construction is enormous.

Trovidur® EC-N (PVC-U) storage tanks

Trovidur® EC-N sheets are extremely well-suited to the construction of tanks for the storage of various media, thanks to their chemical resistance. The sheets are easily bondable and are thus simple to use as liners for existing tanks. Furthermore, lamination with GFK is very easy.
