Below you can find some frequently asked questions about fabrication and custom plastic water tanks.
Why should I buy a custom tank when an off-the-peg one is much cheaper ?
Standard tanks are cheaper, but they only come in certain sizes and materials. They are also made by rotational moulding, which results in uneven wall thicknesses. A custom tank will be the exact size you need in the right material for your purpose. They will be made in a thick strong material, without weak spots.
Which materials can you make plastic tanks of ?
We often make tanks of strong Copolymer Polypropylene, which has excellent resistance to impact, chemicals and temperature. We can also make tanks in PVC, HDPE, Polycarbonate, ESD conductive plastic and more !
What is the best material for my product ?
We'll take into account your product & the conditions you'll use it in and can then advise you on the right material.
What guarantees do you offer ?
That depends on the product and the circumstances it's used in - e.g.impact sustained, chemicals added and so can range from a year for high exposure items to 30 years for simpler water tanks.
Can you create a spherical plastic water tank ?
Plastic fabrication can create rounded items, but not spheres. However, here at Toolcraft we offer vacuum forming as well and so it's possible to vacuum form half a sphere which we can then fabricate to specification.
Can you print or engrave text on plastic water tanks ?
We offer a full printing on plastic service. In case of fabrication we'd have to print first and then fabricate. An alternative would be to create a vacuum forming tool with engraved or embossed text. The resulting vacuum formings can then be fabricated to spec.
Can you provide CAD drawings for my plastic water tank design ?
Yes, we offer a full plastic product design service.
