Thermoplastic tanks have very good chemical resistance, are durable and cost effective. Lightweight but strong, they are also easy to install and transport.


These self-supporting tanks come in a large range of sizes and capacities, with the option to choose between a flat bottom, sloping base or conical base.

Thermoplastic tanks are available in polypropylene or HDPE (high density polyethylene) materials.

Typical uses are chemical storage, water storage, and food product storage, among other applications. Thermoplastic tanks are free of odour, taint or toxicity.

For advice on selecting the right tank for your requirements please get in touch.
