Lined with Corrosion Resistant Plastic

In 2003, Bayer AG commissioned Christen & Laudon to manufacture two storage tanks based on a GRP composite design (glass-fibre backed plastic) for the storage of hydrochloric acid. Due to the enormous size of the planned tanks, Christen & Laudon only considered a GRP composite construction. This comprises a chemically resistant thermoplastic as the in-liner – PVDF in this case, thanks to its good resistance to aggressive media – and structural laminate in GRP, a composite material made from resin and glass.
