Our fiberglass technology allows us to completely customize any connection point and manhole allowing a vast array of storage solutions for almost any situation.

Specializing mostly in fiberglass tanks of many different sizes and builds. If  you need above ground or In-ground solutions we can design a customized tank to fit most situations. 

GLASS FIBER REINFORCEMENTS

All fiberglass reinforcement materials begin as individual filaments drawn from a furnace of molten glass. Many filaments of glass fibers are formed simultaneously and gathered into a strand. A surface treatment or” sizing” is added to the surface of each glass fiber filament to retain fiber properties and enhance the bonding characteristics to the resin matrix. The mechanical strength of a fiberglass composite product depends upon the amount, type and arrangement of glass fiber reinforcement within the material system. The properties of the laminate increase proportionately with the amount of glass fiber reinforcement. All the following types of glass reinforcement are used in the manufacturing of the FRP tanks.

Filament Winding Roving, a single-end strand of glass fibers, is used as the primary stiffness and strength component in the hoop direction. The filament winding roving comprises the “hoop” component of the “chop – hoop” structural laminate construction.

Chopped Strand Roving, a multiple-end roving, is used in the chopper gun to provide the primary stiffness and strength component in the axial and off-axis directions of the tank wall.

Chopped Strand Mat, a product that contains randomly oriented chopped glass fiber bundles of 1 to 2 inches in length and held together with a binder to form a reinforcement sheet, is used in hand layups used for welds and nozzle attachments.

Woven Roving, a fabric made from continuous glass fiber strands, is used in weld materials and added to end caps in high stress areas to enhance strength of the FRP materials.

Nexus Surfacing Veils, a light weight, polyester sheet that acts as a process aid for making a resin-rich surface, provides protection against corrosion, abrasion and weathering. NTP incorporates Nexus surfacing veil in the liner to extend the life of our standard tanks.

C-glass Veils, another form of veil made with fine glass fibers, can be specified for different corrosive environments.

   The Benefits of Fiberglass

  • Fiberglass tanks have a long history of use in applications where watertight design integrity is critical, including extensive use in the storage of motor fuels. Leak-free performance is essential when it comes to fire protection water storage.
  • Installation steps and costs are minimized by the lightweight nature of fiberglass since expensive heavy-lifting equipment generally is not necessary. This also is an important consideration when tank installation sites are difficult to access.
  • Large capacity tanks, up to 60,000 gal. Sizes generally required in fire protection systems, are factory-manufactured products that provide superior quality control processes vs. fabricating a tank on site where it is subject to varying weather conditions and manufacturing controls.
  • A fiberglass tank can be designed for dual-purpose use, with a common example being fire protection standby as well as potable water. A fiberglass tank can be ordered with a National Sanitation Foundation listing for potable applications.
