Haren, Germany | With Polystone® G CubX®, Röchling Engineering Plastics SE & Co. KG of Haren, Germany, has now developed the first variant of its tank construction sheet Polystone® CubX® with cover sheets made of PE100 RC. This is Röchling's response to the request of many customers for a variant having covers made of polyethylene. Polystone® G CubX® has been developed especially for applications, in which PE has to be used as a tank material because of aggressive chemicals, or where connecting pipes, installed equipment or entire plant components have to be made of PE.
Because of the high demand, Röchling has developed Polystone® G CubX®, the first version having cover sheets made of Polystone® G (PE100 RC). In 2019, the company already developed the flame-retardant Polystone® PPs CubX® variant having cover sheets made of polypropylene homopolymer (PP-H) and the UV-resistant variant Polystone® CubX® PG-UV stabilized white – having cover sheets made of a polypropylene copolymer (PP-C).
Polystone® G CubX® with the PE100 RC cover sheets is specifically designed for applications in which connecting pipes, equipment or entire system components are made of PE and PE is the required tank material. The material is also suitable for storage and process tanks, in which chemical media are stored or used for which the resistance of PE to chemicals makes it the only suitable construction material.
