The performance capacity of chemical tanks and plants is determined by many factors. High operating safety is required even at aggressive chemical media, high thermal and static stress. Constructors need materials specifically suitable for such requirements. Our plastics have been in use in the chemical industry for more than 50 years. They are particularly chemicals-resilient, heat-resilient and easy to process. Around the world, they help constructors build low-maintenance tanks and facilities with a high process safety.
Tried and tested applications of our plastics in the chemical processing industry include:
Special requirements as to the strength and dimensioning of tanks can require a laminate of various materials such as thermoplastic and composites. A very high bond strength is required to ensure that tanks with this dual laminate construction have high operational security. Measurements to assess whether materials are suitable for this are the interlaminary shear strength and the tear resistance. Both tests are described in the DIN EN 13121-3.
