GRP tank

Abbreviation for "glass fibre reinforced plastic tank". Due to the glass fibre inlay the material is comparable to steel. During production, the resin is polymerized and cured with the addition of styrene and catalysts. Such polymerization plastics are, for example, polyethylene (PE) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Plastic containers are used in wine making for fermentation or storage. A damage of the layer can lead to the wine defect styrene taste.
