What is Glass-Fused-to-Steel?
Glass-Fused-to-Steel (Glass-Lined-Steel) is a unique tank finish. The two materials are fused together to achieve the best properties of both – the strength and flexibility of steel combined with the corrosion resistance of glass. Applied to both interior and exterior surfaces, Glass-Fused-to-Steel is able to provide many years of trouble free service in harsh environments.
This system has been proven over many decades on thousands of installations and is supported by international standards which cover the design and finish requirements, such as:
EN ISO 28765:2011, EEA 7.20, EEA 7,24, EEA 7.25, ANSI / AWWA D103-09, BS 5502, and NRCS.
Like stainless steel, glass-fused-to-steel tanks provide the following benefits:
- Long life
- Low capital cost
- Low maintenance costs
- Rapid installation
- Ease of transport to site
- Flexibility to re-model, extend, dismantle and relocate
