What is FRP?

FRP stands for fiber reinforced plastic.

FRP is known to be world’s toughest and durable materials that proffer considerably longer life span to the products made of it. This FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) is also reckoned as the fiber reinforced polymer, is a composite material, composed of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers, in which fibers are generally fiberglass like carbon, aramid, boron, etc., whilst the polymer used in can be epoxy, vinylester or polyester thermosetting plastic.

When FRP was invented?

The incorporation of the FRP material at the industry level is a century old, was invented on the basic principle that a composite material is superior to the total of its parts. The example given below can easily elucidate this principle: clay and straw were found to be stronger than clay alone; straw being the fibrous reinforcement and clay being the matrix. Following the invention, it was firstly used in the 1940s in the aircraft industry, thereafter in non military applications, marine sector and many others, where FRP has proven its excellence in terms of its durability and versatility and hence introduce a truly remarkable material to the plastic processing industries which revolutionize the world.

What is a fiber reinforced composite?

The fiber reinforced composite is a composite material, embraces mainly three components, including the fibers as the discontinuous phase, matrix as the continuous phase and a fine interphase region called interface.

What is composite material made of?

We define composite material to the material which is a combination of two or more materials sharing different properties to reap the benefits of respective in a single product.

What FRP contains?

Omkar Composite mostly manufactures this FRP material adopting farthest quality raw material is a combination of:

  • Fiber: Glass, Aramid, Carbon, Ceramic
  • Matrix of Plastic: Polyester, Pthalates, Epoxide, Polyurethane, HDPE, PTFE etc
  • Additives: Colours, Fire inhibitors, UV Retardants, Anti Skid, Conductivity etc.
  • Surface veil: To enhance corrosion resistance, UV protection and appearance

Is FRP Flammable?

The answer is No, FRP tank is a fire retardant and hence it won’t burn, as our FRP tanks embrace halogens and bromide molecules, thereby when the combustion occurs, the incorporated molecule suppresses or smother the flame and therefore the FRP material is also famous as the self extinguish.

What are the Benefits of a Fiberglass Storage Tank / FRP Tanks

Keep the storage clean

The provided FRP tanks are configured to the farthest level of opacity ensuring no light penetrate into the tank, hence prevents chlorine evaporation, bacterial growth as well as algae growth. Further, these FRP tanks are made adopting hot press molding process that ensures absolutely smooth surface, prevents the sticking of any organic matter, required by the algae, bacteria, microorganisms to reproduce.

Strength & Long Term Reliability

The use of the hot press molding technology ensures impeccable, high quality panels with the uniform distribution of the fiberglass with the highly accurate dimensional stability, essential to procure the FRP tanks of the highest reliability and performance.

Thermal Insulation Property

The FRP material used in the tank holds an excellent thermal insulation aspect, helps to keep the temperature of the stored product at the preferred level for a longer period of time. Therefore the use of the FRP tanks help industries to save energy needed for heating or chilling water.

Re-locability

FRP has High strength to weight ratio and therefore tanks made from the FRP material is light in weight helps easily relocate a tank to the different site location that apparently reduce the cost of getting a new storage system.

Flexible design and Modular shape

The versatility of the FRP material to be moulded in the shape and size enable us to deliver the FRP tank as per site requirement.

Simplicity of Handling and Site Installation

The light weight aspect of the provided FRP tanks enables easy handling and installation.

Cost Effective Maintenance Free Solution

The considerable strength of our FRP tanks along with the smooth surface prevents any damage and development of the bacteria, microorganism and algae. Therefore the FRP tanks do not demand any maintenance all through its life.

Environmentally Friendly

The FRP material used in the tanks is absolutely recyclable, can be recycled for decades and hence reduce the environmental impact.

What is the difference between FRP and GRP?

FRP stands of fiber reinforced plastic, is a combination of the high strength fibers and polymer matrix, wherein fiber of the composite can be glass, carbon, aramid, etc., whilst plastics used  are basically thermosetting resin like polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy. This FRP material is the excellent alternative of the wood and metal. On the other side, GRP stands for glass reinforced plastic, is a combination of the glass fiber and polyesters, in which fiber of the composite is glass fiber and the polymer like polyester, vinyl or epoxy. In short, if the fiber of a composite is glass, it is known as the GRP, and therefore it is also known as one type of FRP.

What is FRP tank?

FRP tank is a storage vessel, devised from the FRP material featuring excellent corrosion, UV, temperature, flame and chemical resistance and hence it ensures longer shelf life under diverse conditions, unlikely to other tanks. Due to its remarkable aspects this FRP tanks are extensively popular in chemicals, water, waste water, oil, petroleum, gas, and all other analogous industries for storage purpose.

Why we have used FRP material in Tanks?

FRP have been a favorite material for the composition of the various products since it is invented, due to sharing some of the unrivalled characteristics, which are hard to find together in other polymers. The properties for which we have adopted FRP covers:

  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Lightweight with high strength
  • Completely recyclable – Environmentally friendly
  • Excellent resistance against corrosion

All this fantastic features of our FRP tanks exhibits have made it the blockbuster in the industries, addressing with energy, oil, gas, aquaculture, agriculture, chemical (brine, chlor-alkali, electroplating, food processing, fertilizer, refining and vinegar), pulp and paper, petroleum, septic and wastewater worldwide, and is gradually taking over the marketability of other polymers.

What are the drivers of our FRP tanks?

The use of the ultra modern butt welding technology is what helps us to introduce most futuristic range of the FRP tanks globally. The unstoppable benefits of this butt fusion technology in conjunction with high corrosion resistance property of FRP tank as well as entirety life cycle cost advantage are the drivers of our growth in the global market. Additionally, the same high point of our range of FRP tanks has gained considerable pace in replacing old storage tanks in the areas, including fuel station, water storage application, rainwater storage and desalination plants.

FRP tanks vs. Concrete Tanks

Cost effective

Considering all the advantages of the FRP and concrete associated with the installation, maintenance and durability, FRP tanks are much more cost effective than that of concrete tanks.

No deterioration

FRP tanks do not contain any metal parts and therefore they do not experience any degradation all through the life span. Further, there is no any galvanic action responsible for the degrade performance.

No internal or external corrosion

FRP is known for its excellent corrosion resistance aspect and therefore tanks made of the FRP material never rust. Additionally, the use of the hot press molding technology delivers absolutely smooth surface prevents microbial induced corrosion, whereas concerted tanks are porous and therefore increased chance for the corrosion.

No structural weakness

Unlike concrete, FRP is a nonporous material and hence no dilation is experienced in the FRP tanks. Furthermore, the stability of the FRP material provides an absolute seal and prevents cracks and leaks due to expansion or contraction over time.

No maintenance

FRP tanks do not require special monitoring, seal replacement, overlay across the life and therefore FRP tanks require no maintenance all through its lifetime, unlikely to the concrete.

Lighter than concrete

Surprisingly, FRP tanks are 30 times lighter than a concrete tank, which ultimately eliminates the requirement of the heavy cranes for the installation and thus reduces the cost of the installation drastically.

Easy handling

Other than lightweight, the high impact strength aspect of the FRP tanks enables withstand any harsh installation conditions without and damage, whilst concrete tanks need to be handled carefully.

Highly scalable than concrete

FRP tanks are easy to join with other tanks by means of principle of communicating vessels, permits the user to design the system as per the requirement.

Fibreglass vs. Steel

Excellency against corrosion

FRP tanks are excellent against corrosion, unlikely to that of stainless steel tanks, which need to be coated internally and externally in order to prevent corrosion. This coating not only adds to the cost, but also demands maintenance frequently, whereas excellent corrosion resistance of the FRP tanks does not need any maintenance all through the lifespan.

Lighter than steel

FRP tanks have high strength to weight ration, unlikely to the stainless steel tanks, which hold greater impact strength, but have four time greater weight of the FRP tanks that leads to higher installation cost.

Fibreglass vs. Polyethylene

Limited applications

Thermoplastic materials used in the manufacturing of the tank has a considerably lower modulus than fiberglass material and therefore the use of the polyethylene tanks is limited concerned to common burial conditions, including groundwater table, traffic loads and burial depth. On the other side FRP tanks are configured to sustain any extent of the load.

Capacity limitation

The polypropylene tanks design is limited in capacity, for an instance, for an underground application poly tanks are limited to much smaller capacity than what is necessary for typical fire protection tank installation. Therefore, in order to achieve required capacity tanks, small sized tanks need to join together that apparently add cost. On the other side, FRP tanks have no capacity limitation and hence large tanks can be designed to get the respective system with less efforts and less installation cost.
