Richmond Fibreglass is experienced in manufacturing water tanks, septic tanks and tanks for the research and aquaculture industries.
Fibreglass tanks can be used for the storage of water, septic waste and chemicals and are lightweight, have structural integrity, and can be produced with many specific properties including strength, U.V and chemical resistance.
The strength and light weight properties of fibreglass are very favorable when compared to metals, and fibreglass can be easily formed using molding processes.
Unlike polyethylene or plastic, fibreglass does not distort, bend under pressure or produce a plastic taste in drinking water. Fibreglass tanks also offer increased resistance to rusting, corrosion, and impact.
Fibreglass tanks can be manufactured to suit specific storage requirements and fittings.
We are able to build one off moulds to full production moulds designed to handle large scale production.
Fibreglass provides multiple options for cost effective prototypes and large production parts.
The durability and versatility of fiberglass in the marine environment makes it the product of choice for hatcheries and fish farms throughout the aquaculture industry around the world. The smooth non-porous gelcoat tank surface allows farm operators to clean tanks easily and helps to eliminate skin abrasions and disease vectors by creating a non-porous surface helping to eliminate bacteria forming.
Fibreglass tanks often last longer than concrete tanks, are light weight and are not as easily affected by sewer gases so can be less vulnerable to deterioration and are less likely to be penetrated and destroyed by tree roots.
Fibreglass water storage tanks have many uses including rain water collection and fire protection. Fibreglass tanks can be much easier to repair than plastic or concrete tanks, can be produced in specific colours and are very nonporous so do not leave a plastic taste in stored water.
Chemical storage tanks can be moulded to suit specific purposes and can possess corrosion, chemical and heat resistant properties. Depending on the intended use of the tank, resins used in the manufacturing process can be specifically chosen to be compatible with salts, oils, pesticides, fertilizers or acids.
