FRP offers the corrosive liquid hauler longer life, less costly repair and less down time in comparison to lined metal units. FRP will outlast most rubber and a host of other linings, and normally see up to 3 times the service life of lined units. FRP construction dramatically reduces operating costs. Fenders, light boxes, hose trays, catwalk, and piping are all made of strong, lightweight FRP. They not only carry corrosives, they work in a corrosive environment. FRP does not rust, and no painting is required.

The tremendous strength of the filament wound construction process eliminates the need for wood or foam coring, the barrel is solid FRP.
