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

RITA tank calculation programme

Our tank calculation programme RITA® - Röchling's Integrated Tankbuilding Assistant calculatess free standing, pressureless circular and rectangular tanks under consideration of the current DVS-standards.

Application examples

Durostone® fasteners - galvanic operations

Durostone® fasteners - Our Durostone® fasteners are particularly resilient against aggressive media and gases, and therefore particularly suitable for use in galvanic operations.

Mobile covering hood

Mobile covering hood - At a density of 0.65 g/cm³, Foamlite® P is much lighter in weight than any sheet of compact PP (0.915 g/cm³). With its chemical resilience and mechanical stability, the light-weight construction material is specifically customised for use in the chemical tank and plant construction. Foamlite® with its lower weight has constructional cost benefits there - e.g. as mobile covering hood.

Storage tanks for sulphuric acid

Made of Polystone® G black B 100, the sulphuric acid storage tank resist the chemical stress permanently and permit safe storage.

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.

Housing of Polystone® G HD black

Housings made of Polystone® G HD black are suitable for permanent use outdoors thanks to their high UV resilience.

Stepping surfaces made of Polystone® Safe-Tec

Stepping surfaces made of Polystone® Safe-Tec - Polystone® Safe-Tec C is a multi-layered and grained sheet specifically developed for floors and stepping areas in chemical tank and plant construction. It is characterised by a slip-inhibiting surface (reviewed purs. to DIN 51130) and very high chemicals resilience.

Polystone® P flex as squeeze protection for lids of tanks

Accident prevention - crush protection on the hinged cover of a galvanic plant made of Polytone© P flex grey.
