Long lifetime of IWAKI solutions in polyethylene
IWAKI Nordic uses the PE100-RC material (Resistent to Crack) to a large extent for the complete Systems solutions. Eg. the very strong polyethylene sheets used for both IBC storage units, dosing and safety cabinets, are made in PE100-RC.
The general characteristics of the raw material PE-100 speaks for itself:
- Food safe
- Elastic / impact resistant
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Homogeneous material
- No coating
- No fibreglass
- Easy cleaning due to the surface structure
- Simple and inexpensive recycling etc.
A strong argument that IWAKI uses the PE100-RC material is that the material has an average lifetime of 10 times as long as the ordinary PE100.
A number of stress tests have been carried out amongst other by the german engineering company Hessel, where it turns out that the PE100-RC manages almost 30 times as long in a FNCT (Full-Notch Creep test) compared to the regular PE100.
At the same time, PE100-RC (Resistent to Crack) inhibits the development of minor cracks / damage to the material, which also has a direct impact on the lifetime.
- Long lifetime
- Recyclable material
- Value for money
When comparing the PE material with eg. fibreglass, which is often deposited by burial or burned at power plants, you can deliver the PE100-RC to the ordinary recycling site. PE is a recyclable material. Fibreglass, on the other hand, is not degraded by natural processes, and when deposited, it will remain unaffected for many years.
The PE100-RC material is also used by IWAKI Nordic’s partner Weber Kunststofftechnik GmbH manufacturer of small-to-large chemical tanks. These solutions are used among other things within the chemical industry, surface treatment, water treatment etc.
