GRP tanks using SMC (sheet moulding compound) material, which is a high strength fibre-reinforced sheet moulding composite and is used in its manufacturing facilities.
GRP panels are 1000 mm x 1000mm or 1000 mm x 500 mm. The GRP tank panels enhance the tanks’ rigidness. The thickness and weight of the GRP panels vary depending on the height of the tank. The higher the tank, the thicker the bottom row panels will be.
Insulated GRP tank, or drinking water tank, is the Format 30. Our Format 30 tanks come complete with a heavy-duty cover screened air vents and overflows as well as warning pipes. All roof and sidewall panels come insulated with encapsulated CFC-free polyurethane foam insulation meeting the requirements of section 30 of the water bylaws. Tanks in extreme temperatures may also need the base panels to be insulated.
The panels get erected in a modular structure, which enables a tank of any size to get constructed. Our GRP sectional tanks generally come insulated to Format 30 for the use of consumption of potable water or non-insulated suitable for non-potable water or greywater.
Typical installations include government buildings, data centres, airports, hotels, and pharmaceutics.
Manufacturing domestic/ one piece tanksOur one-piece GRP tanks are hand laid up. The moulds get covered by spraying on layers of chopped strands of fibreglass mixed with resin and catalyst and rolled
Our one-piece tanks also come insulated to Format 30 or non-insulated and are again factory insulated with CFC-free foam on all sides. All one-piece tanks have screened inlets and overflows. Our one-piece tanks range in sizes from 45 to 4,546 litres (10 – 1.000 gallons) nominal capacity.
Manufactures condensation trays to suit all sizes of water storage tanks. Condensation trays or drip trays should be used in any instance where condensation drips from pipework or the tank. Tanks installed indoors without a condensation tray could cause nuisance through damage or render floors wet and slippery.

Corrosion is defined as the gradual destruction of materials or their properties due to a reaction with their environment. Affected mediums include metals, plastics, and other materials that are incompatible with certain chemical compounds. The useful properties of materials and structures, including strength, appearance, and permeability to liquids and gases, can all be degraded by corrosion. One way to combat this is by protecting the structure with a high-performance, corrosion-resistant coating.
Many high-performance coatings offer tremendous resistance against corrosion and abrasion. But there are few specialized coatings that provide chemical resistance for strong liquids — such as acids, alkalis, gases, solvents, or oxidizers — as well as extreme temperatures and other factors associated with the storage and transportation of such liquids.
It is essential that the interior, as well as the exterior of metal tanks, be protected. In addition to environmental factors that can cause corrosion of steel, there are many types of products stored inside tanks that can accelerate the breakdown of the surface. If the structure is not appropriately protected, perforations can occur and cause consequential damage to the interior. The cost implications can be felt directly and indirectly by the owner through the loss of production, environmental impacts, and required damage repair.
To provide the most cost-effective corrosion protection, the right criteria must be considered when selecting a coating. If an appropriate coating is not chosen and applied, contamination of the stored product and deterioration of the tank becomes more likely.
Top Three Characteristics of a Good Tank Lining

A tank liner is a material used to create a strong and thick film and subsequently prevent chemical contamination, corrosion, and leakage. These liners come as specialized fabrics made from different heavy-duty materials.
According to EPA stipulations, tanks with capacities of under 110 gallons are subject to federal regulations. Part of these federal regulations call for the proper lining of water-holding tanks to prevent leakages and safely contain chemicals.
While their purpose is simple enough, the sheer variety of available water tank liners may be overwhelming at first. Here’s a breakdown of the common types of tank liners for water systems present in the market and a few of their merits as tank liners.
Epoxy tank coatings are made from epoxy material, which can be developed to be chemical-resistant. They are strong linings that are aggressive and capable of working under high-temperature environments. Epoxy is moisture tolerant and solvent-free, making it an obvious choice for water tanks.
Polyurethane tank linings fall somewhere in the middle in terms of flexibility, though they’re certainly more flexible than other options. That said, they’re ideal for concrete-made structures.
Vinyl Ester Tank Liners
Vinyl ester liners are made from vinyl material and provides some of the highest resistance to chemical infiltration and contamination. This material has found extensive use in most chemical industries because of its high resistance to temperature and chemical damage.
Polyurea Tank Liners
Polyurea material is rare in the tank lining industry. This newer commercialized lining material is applied in a gel-like form using specialized spraying equipment. Polyurea provides perfect flexibility and strength as a tank liner. It also has elongation properties of up to 900%. There are many variations of polyurethane and they’re designed for varying applications. Polyurea tank linings are also abrasion resistant and solvent-free.
There are two common types of cementitious linings, which include epoxy and polymer modified cementitious linings. These materials find common use in the lining of concrete tanks used in water treatment and to safely contain chemicals. These linings are ideal for waterproofing underwater retaining or collection structures.
Zinc Tank Liners
A zinc-made tank liner has zinc silicate material and is anti-corrosive. Its additives and binders can act as effective waterproofing material. This material has zinc dust levels of a high percentage. These liners give a zinc-to-zinc contact with cathode-like protective layers like some that occur in a galvanizing process. These linings are non-porous, which makes their cleaning a little challenging. However. they can still safely contain chemicals. The zinc coating is effective because it fills up the capillaries and pores. These coatings also resist the power of solvents and they can get used to line solvent tanks. But they’re not resistant to bases and strong acids.
Stainless Steel Liners
Stainless steel linings are made from polished or rough stainless steel. Rough-surfaced steel linings are most commonly used. Tanks with stainless steel linings should get cleaned to an ideal Water White Standard on a regular basis.
You can safely contain chemicals and avert tank leakages from all kinds of tanks by ensuring that you buy the right kind of tank lining material. There are numerous tank lining materials and they have varying effectiveness in serving as tank liners, which can prevent leakages and chemical contaminations. Your choice of a liner should be based on various factors, which include its ability to serve as a perfect water-tight sealant.
