We are a business that aims to help people in looking after their water tanks. To this end we offer various services including maintenance, cleaning and new water tank lids. There is much more that we’re capable of as well. At the end of the day, the service you choose will depend on what your needs are.
Rigid polypropylene is the material we use for our lids. It is known as a thermoplastic addition polymer. It’s created from the union of propylene monomers. People use it in many applications, including plastic parts. These days, it stands as one of the most common plastics on earth. Part of the reason why has to do with its characteristics. We are going to go through some of the finer features of this material so you know why to choose it.
Resistant to chemicals
Chemical resistance is one of the most important benefits. Diluted acids and bases have little reaction with the substance. As a result it is a good choice for tanks for liquids.
Elasticity and toughness
The material also has decent toughness and elasticity. It is a tough medium, making it very good for situations where it will be exposed to tough elements such as high temperatures and moisture. It should resist deformation and warping very well.
Fatigue resistance is another noteworthy quality of the material. It can preserve its shape after a fair degree of flexing, bending, or torsion. This is especially useful if you’re designing living hinges.
Polypropylene has an average amount of transmissivity too. You can even make it transparent, a useful trait for lids because people will be able to see the level without opening the tank. If there is no need to see inside the material can also be an opaque colour.
At Nationwide Water Solutions, we can produce our water tank lids to fit any style or size needs. We can also finish the fabrication onsite if the job calls for it. Our method of choice is hot air welding. With it, we can create some of the most durable goods available.
