Polypropylene is a plastic resin that is found in our
daily lives. Polypropyene is in your automobile,
appliances, medical devices, consumer packaging and most
certainly in plastic storage tanks. It is a very
versatile plastic. In the production of tanks,
polypropylene is valued for its ability to deal with
higher temperatures and for its chemical compatibility.
For most applications, polypropylene can withstand
continuous use temperatures of 200 F.

chemical application and Polypropylene.
Polypropylene resin we use is 'natural' in color. That
means it makes tanks with a milky white translucent
color. The level of the liquid is visible through the
sidewalls of single wall tanks.
Polypropylene is a good choice for
double wall chemical storage tanks. Polypropylene
is one of the plastics that can be joined using
thermoplastic welding. That means the primary and
secondary tanks can be fused together. Welded flanges
and welded couplings can also be added to tanks making
bolted fittings and gaskets unnecessary.
