For decades, FRP tanks have been used as the material of choice for the containment of chemicals, whether that be storage in the form of tanks or transmission in the form of pipes, that are used in the water treatment and waste water treatment industries.
The ability to tailor a specific resin blend to suit different chemicals and the cost effective manufacturing process mean that it is hard to go past FRP as the most appropriate option. Why then would you design the infrastructure in these areas from materials that don’t have the same level of corrosion resistance.
The advances in manufacturing processes have now meant that “structural composites” are becoming more common place in highly corrosive environments.
