Advantages of Fiberglass Chemical Tanks

There are several advantages to adopting Fiberglass as the preferred material. The following are a few of the most significant benefits of fiberglass chemical tanks.

100% watertight

FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) tanks are made as a totally sealed unit. Penetrations through the walls are created at the factory using materials that are compatible. The unit does not have any joints that need to be sealed on site. This basically makes fiberglass chemical tanks completely waterproof.

There are two major advantages to being waterproof. For starters, it keeps other liquids and gases out of the tank. As a result, contamination or dilution of the stored product is avoided. Second, it keeps chemicals from seeping out of the storage tank from contaminating the surrounding region.

Chemical attack resistance

Early on in its development, it was recognized that fiberglass (FRP) has great resistance to chemical attack. To guarantee that the asset owner’s expectations are met, GSC Tanks carefully picks the most appropriate resin system for the relevant applications.

Easy to maintain

Particles have trouble attaching to the sidewalls of Fiberglass (FRP) units due to the smoothness of the glass resin inside the surface. The smooth walls of the Fiberglass (FRP) station decrease the duration and frequency of washing down the tanks, as well as product build-up on the tank walls. As a result, the operator’s maintenance expenses and downtime are reduced.

Quality control

GSC Tanks’ FRP products are designed and approved by a practicing Composite Materials Engineer to be acceptable for the planned application as part of its quality control system.

The fiberglass chemical tanks are built as complete units in a factory under regulated circumstances.

Prior to the start of any FRP component manufacturing, project-specific working drawings are created for the item. Dimensions and clearances are examined during the drafting phase to guarantee the tank operates as intended. Because the units are tailored for each project, these designs include all of the essential manufacturing information.

Modifications are simple to make over the tank’s lifetime

During the life of any tank, modest adjustments to the exterior fittings are usually necessary. For instance, adding extra brackets, etc. Fiberglass (FRP) brackets or mounting plates that are “glassed” into the inside walls at the desired place may simply be added to the station. Anchorage does not need drilling through the wall. As a result, the structure’s overall structural integrity and water tightness are not jeopardized.

Resistance to abrasion

The fiberglass chemical tanks are designed to withstand abrasion on the surface. This is accomplished by depositing a coating of pure resin material on the surface that is both smooth and strong, decreasing friction.


GSC Tanks creates solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of each client. The size of the nozzle, the type of material used, and the arrangement are all customizable.

Within technical constraints, this allows the designer to define a tank architecture that maximizes operational efficiency, adheres to system specifications, and is compatible with the end user’s operation and maintenance processes.
