The laminate Corrosion Barrier is the Inner Surface and Interior Layer combined. The glass content of the Corrosion barrier shall be 27% ± 5% by weight. The most important feature to any fiberglass tank in the corrosion industry is the corrosion barrier of the tank. Each tank Laybond manufactures is built using a male mold to help ensure a smooth, resin rich internal finish to aid in corrosion resistance.
Economy Resin System
Isophthalic polyester resin throughout the laminate.
Standard Resin System
Our "STANDARD" resin system consists of Premium grade Vinyl ester resin in both the Inner Surface and Interior Layer. Isophthalic polyester resin is used in the Structural Layer and Outside Surface.
Premium Resin System
Premium grade Vinyl ester resin throughout the laminate.

All Laybond Tank 90° rims are formed by means of hand lay-up to the tank sidewall on a platen table to ensure uniformity
FittingsLaybond Tank flanged nozzles are made via the hand lay-up process as a standard which offers superior strength and corrosion resistance. Conical and plate gusseting is also offered, where added strength is required.
AccessoriesOur standard insulated tanks come equipped with a reinforced fiberglass outer protective shell for protection of insulation against damage from mechanical impact and environmental degradation. We also offer a replaceable type heat panel for tanks that need to maintain a given product temperature. Heat panels help eliminate the high cost associated with repair or replacement of wire heating systems which require complete removal of the tank insulation, and later re-insulation of tank after repair or replacement.
