Why Line Your Steel Tanks with Plastic?

Steel tanks are known for their high temperature ratings and mechanical strength, but many times, they cannot be used to contain plating solutions. Corrosive solutions attack steel, and lead to leaks and tank failure. The common alternatives to steel tanks are using plastics, both as liners and free-standing structures. The chemical properties of these materials protect the solution from contamination and the steel from corrosion.

These plastics can include flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC-P) and polypropylene (PP) which are also common alternatives to steel tanks. Despite some of their preferable properties being resistant to weather, chemical rotting, corrosion, shock & abrasion, they are not resistant to all chemical applications such as more aggressive plating mixtures. PP tanks have a high fire risk if there is an elevated temperature and electric immersion heathers while polypropylene tanks are quickly combustible and difficult to extinguish.

For a guaranteed lifetime, high quality tanks lined with plastics like Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), known for its robust properties, can greatly reduce the cost of the tanks over the years when the initial investment is made upfront.
