Polyesters tanks with glass fiber reinforcement (PTGFR)
PTGFR is a composite material, in which the fiber glass that constitutes the structural part has a high mechanical strength, and the resin constitutes the waterproofing material, chemical-resistant, which links the various fibers and allows the distribution of forces.
Because of this, a comparative analysis with traditional materials (steel, stainless steel, polyethylene) on the specific characteristics, resulting as PTGFR's offer more possibilities for use in several fields. Besides this advantage, fiberglass tanks shows other such as:
• are very accessible in terms of constructive
• are more economical
• are lightweight, which allows the handling, transport and assembly to take place in optimal conditions and in very short time
• have greater lifetime
• requires no further maintenance (painting, retouching, modification).
C&O LEADER containers made of PTGFR requires no special maintenance because of resistance to UV, in case of the aboveground tanks and mechanical and chemical resistance conferred by construction materials in the case of the underground tanks.
