Tips for Avoiding Common Problems with Fiberglass Tank Repairs

How to avoid common problems with Fiberglass Tank Repair

If you're an industrial business looking to repair fiberglass tanks, it pays to take your time and do it right. Properly repairing fiberglass tanks requires a combination of specialized knowledge, quality materials, and the right approach. Doing things the wrong way can result in costly repairs, potential liabilities, or worse.

At PlasTech Services Inc., we specialize in professional industrial maintenance services including the repair of fiberglass tanks. In this blog post, we'll provide some tips for avoiding common problems when performing or outsourcing such repairs.

Surface Preparation:

One of the most important steps in any type of tank repair is providing a clean and level surface on which to work. This means removing all dirt and debris from the tank's interior and exterior surfaces. It also includes smoothing out any uneven areas with sandpaper or other appropriate tools before applying the repair material. Otherwise, the repair may not adhere correctly, leading to further damage down the line.

Choose The Right Repair Material:

Another key factor is selecting an appropriate repair material for your specific application. Fiberglass is highly vulnerable to both physical damage and chemicals so make sure that whatever material you use can withstand both types of wear over time. Additionally, consider factors like heat resistance if applicable so you don't end up with a failed repair job due to thermal expansion and contraction down the line.

Address Underlying Issues:

Finally, it's important to identify and address any underlying issues causing exterior damage to your tank if possible. This could include anything from faulty equipment components causing vibration-induced damage to corrosion caused by exposure to certain chemicals or prolonged weathering over time. Taking care of these issues early will help minimize future repairs while saving you time and money in the long run.
