Certain processes require the need of fiberglass materials for construction. KCH Fiberglass Tanks can be made with specialty resins, depending upon the application. They have excellent structural properties. Certain resin/glass combinations can withstand temperatures of up to 250°F.
Advancements in plastics have led polypropylene to be the material of choice over fiberglass or steel for most wet process tanks. Polypropylene is a homogeneous material, whereas fiberglass is not. Automated welding of thermoplastics can reduce the chance for human error, whereas fiberglass is a very labor intensive manual process.
