Corosion Resistance Custom Formulations for Enhanced Corrosion Resistance

Our shelters often have to perform in very difficult environments withstanding chemicals commonly such as nitric acid, hydrofluorosilicic acid, and sodium hypochloriten that are used in water and wastewater facilities as well as other industrial applications.

Since these chemicals can attack and degrade fiberglass made with general purpose polyester resin, we use many special polyester and vinylester resins that are formulated to stand up to a wide range of corrosive chemicals. There are also special gel coats that offer chemical resistance as well.

Questions to Answer

In order to know what type of resin is best for an application, we ask our clients such questions as:

  • Will the chemical be in direct contact with the building?
  • Will the exposure be intermittent or prolonged?
  • Will it be in the form of a liquid or a gas?
  • What will be the concentration of the chemical (measured in parts per million, or %)?
  • What will be the maximum temperature in the building?

Our Field Equipment Specialists seek to understand the uses of the shelters, so that we can design our fiberglass building to the exact specifications needed. This attention to detail ensures low-maintenance, long-lasting structures that will protect equipment even in the harshest environments.
