What is the main raw material of fiberglass water tanks?
Fiberglass water tank is based on domestic water tanks as the standard, FRP tank use of reactive high benzene type food grade unsaturated polyester resin. The resin after curing, very little residual styrene, to meet the health requirements, and good water resistance, long-term use, still able to maintain adequate mechanical properties.
Fiberglass water tanks board’s material?
Fiberglass water tank is the old-fashioned alternative to cement tank. Which is characterized by the use of food-grade resin, so good water quality, clean pollution-free;
Future Development Trend of FRP Tank
Glass steel water tank sub-SMC modular combination of water tanks and hand-formed water tanks two categories. SMC molded FRP tank water storage of the best (better than stainless steel water tank), which assemble convenient, the largest domestic has reached 1260 cubic meters.
First, the first lesson learned, the last century, popular glass-steel water tank, because the industry cut corners, poor quality, and gradually withdraw from the market, most of the stainless steel water tanks to replace. The other hand, Japan, stainless steel water tank is no match for glass steel tanks, water tanks used in Japan is almost 100% glass fiber reinforced plastic.
Second, the water tank veneer from the traditional 1 — 1m to 2 — 1m excessive, for two reasons: installation time-saving, the unit cost of the board also decreased.
Third, the thermoplastic glass with the production process is a physical change, pollution-free, easy recycling, low density, good impact toughness and a series of advantages. China has GMT (Glass Mat Reinforced Thermoplastics – glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic sheet) production, with its molding, production efficiency than the SMC molding to several times higher (dwell time of only about 1 minute). Abroad has been used as containers, working conditions than the water tank poor working conditions. The SMC is not easy to recycling. Therefore, from the perspective of environmental protection and recycling economy should also be used FRTP, the original press, mold can be used only to purchase a heating oven (preheated GMT sheet) can be.
Fourth, the development of glass steel water tank products: the use of glass corrosion-resistant characteristics of steel, SMC adjustment of raw materials formula, can produce chemical tank, plating tank, the advantages of its convenient installation can be produced camps swimming pool, guard room and other facilities. For large tanks, rods to pay attention to choose corrosion-resistant and materials.
