Characteristics of FRP tanks

FRP tanks

With the development of science and technology, there are more and more industries, and for many industries, storage is a big problem, such as food, medicine, chemical industry, etc. Many products need to be stored, and in storage, the choice of storage tanks is quite Only by selecting the right storage tank can the quality of the product be guaranteed, especially the glass fiber reinforced plastic tank, which has very good characteristics. Now let's introduce the characteristic properties of FRP tanks.

 

FRP tanks

 

FRP tanks have characteristic properties:

 

1. Good electrical performance

 

It is an excellent insulating material and is used to make insulators. It still protects good dielectric properties at high frequencies. It has good microwave permeability and has been widely used in radomes.

 

2. Good designability

 

a. Various structural products can be flexibly designed according to needs to meet the requirements of use, which can make the product have a good integrity.

 

b. The material can be fully selected to meet the performance of the product, such as: corrosion resistance, instantaneous high temperature resistance, special high strength in a certain direction of the product, good dielectric properties, etc. can be designed.

 

3. Lightweight and high strength

 

The relative density is between 1.5 and 2.0, which is only 1/4 to 1/5 of that of carbon steel, but the tensile strength is close to or even exceeds that of carbon steel, and the specific strength can be compared with that of high-grade alloy steel. Therefore, it has excellent results in aviation, rockets, spacecraft, high-pressure vessels and other applications that require weight reduction. The tensile, flexural and compressive strength of some epoxy FRP can reach more than 400Mpa. Note: Specific strength is strength divided by density.

 

4. Good corrosion resistance

 

FRP is a good corrosion-resistant material, and has good resistance to the atmosphere, water and general concentrations of acids, alkalis, salts, and various oils and solvents. It has been applied to all aspects of chemical anti-corrosion, and is replacing carbon steel, stainless steel, wood, non-ferrous metals, etc.

 

5. Good thermal performance

 

FRP has low thermal conductivity, which is 1.25~1.67kJ/(m·h·K) at room temperature, which is only 1/100~1/1000 of that of metal. It is an excellent thermal insulation material. In the case of instantaneous ultra-high temperature, it is an ideal thermal protection and ablation resistant material, which can protect the spacecraft from the erosion of high-speed airflow above 2000 °C.

 

6. Excellent craftsmanship

 

a. The molding process can be flexibly selected according to the shape, technical requirements, application and quantity of the product.

 

b. The process is simple, can be formed at one time, and the economic effect is outstanding, especially for products with complex shapes and a small number of products that are not easy to form, its technological superiority is more prominent.
