The Rapid Rise Of Poly Rainwater Tanks

Sep 8, 2008
Poly rainwater tanks are fast becoming the most popular choice for rainwater tanks sold in world today. The popular move towards poly rainwater tanks has been due to several contributing factors. The main reasons for the increased interest in poly rainwater tank are their resistance to corrosion, speedy fabrication times and long life span. Because of the high demand for poly water tanks, thousands of rotational molding companies have sprung up all over the world to cope with the enormous demand from the poly water tank market.

Most Poly rainwater tanks are made using the rotational molding process or the less common plastic welding process. Poly tank welding is a process in which two pieces of heat-softened poly are joined through the application of pressure. Examples of this process are hot air and extrusion welding.

Poly rainwater tanks are basically used to store drinkable water and are highly utilized in the rural and urban markets.

Poly rainwater tanks differ in size and capacity and are available in many colours, ranging from small tanks holding a one hundred litres to water tanks greater than 45,000 litres.

Rainwater tanks used for storage water are made from a wide variety of poly chemicals. Poly is the abbreviation for Polyethylene (PE), a light, chemically- resistant thermopoly, is the most commonly used poly resin. Polyethylene resins include linear high density (HDLPE), cross-linked high density (XLPE) and linear low density (LLDPE) resins.

Poly rainwater tanks have several advantages over the customary steel water tanks. Their seamless construction provides them with greater impact strength and superior resistance to corrosion. These virtually unbreakable water tanks have a longer lifespan than steel tanks, which can rust through and leak. Poly rainwater tanks are fast and easily manufactured. Poly rainwater tanks also cost less overall than steel tanks.

Poly rainwater tanks are the most conventional, economical, most widely used water tank bought these days
