Top 5 Benefits of GRP Water Tanks

Dewey waters are a market leader in the manufacturing and supply of GRP water storage tanks. Here are the top 5 benefits to GRP tanks compared to traditional materials used. Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), otherwise known as Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP), offers manufacturers many advantages over alternative materials, especially when compared with steel equivalents.

GRP Water tanks Corrosion resistant

GRP material is the ideal solution for water storage tanks that need to be weather resistant, Dewey waters install water tanks all over the world and needed a material that could withstand highly aggressive weather (cold/hot) in comparison to Steel which has a low corrosion resistance properties, as the material is subject to oxidation and corrosion requiring painting or galvanizing. Aluminium tanks are also subject to corrosion, requiring anodizing or other coatings. GRP also offers corrosion resistance to chemicals and wastewater and sewage.

GRP Tested High Strength Factor vs Alternatives

GRP’s superior strength is far greater than equivalent steel profiles. Despite its lightweight properties, GRP offers impressive strength-to-weight load-bearing performance. The high glass-to-resin ratios used in our technically advanced formulation ensure our GRP products outperform and outlast traditional materials. Steel is necessarily heavy in weight to achieve its high strength properties. Aluminium does not offer this property, offering low strength capabilities.

Maintenance of GRP

GRP has a design life of 25 years, together with the corrosion properties this material is maintenance free compared to steel & aluminium which can rust, corrode and need to be coated or repainted over the same period as the design life of GRP. GRP is extremely durable will not distort under impact compared to other traditional materials.

Lightweight Capabilities GRP vs Alternatives

GRP material is a low-cost option due to its lightweight capabilities; it is 70% – 80% lighter than steel, transport cost is dramatically reduced as no heavy lifting equipment is required to on/offload. GRP can be easily manoeuvred from factory to site reducing the overall installation costs significantly.

GRP Lower Production, Installation, Maintenance and Transport Cost

GRP material, compared to steel and aluminium which have a lower initial material cost, however, is more costly to maintain and has a lower life cycle. High tensile strength and non-conductive properties, combine to deliver a highly cost-effective, durable and sustainable product.
