Fibreglass is ideal for storing and handling highly corrosive chemicals including acids, caustics and oxidisers. Wherever there is a corrosive liquor or gas, Armatec can assist with tanks, pipes, scrubbers, fans, coatings and more. Armatec’s chemical engineers understand the chemicals involved, and can make recommendations for the choice and design of fibreglass required. There are limitations for chemical concentrations and temperatures, so be sure to consult us.
