Discover the infinite forms that plastic can take in the hands of Industrial Plastic. Proving such a versatile material, plastics are used to create many different products and equipment. Most recently, our team fabricated an acrylic testing tank for a large company in the aerospace industry.
What is an Acrylic Testing Tank?
Commonly known as testing chambers, these tanks are containers that allow to safely test the performance of products under manipulated conditions that are often extreme. Anything from metals and electronic components to adhesives and fabrics are exposed to harsh environmental conditions to evaluate their stability and endurance. This needs to be done in a controlled and enclosed setting to analyse the influence of different factors (like humidity and temperature) without any contamination from the outside. At the same time, these elements must be safely kept inside the tank to protect the exterior from any hazards.
From laboratories and packaging to, of course, aerospace companies require these tanks for complex experimental testing. Other industries that use an acrylic testing tank as an essential part of their procedures are:
- Renewable Energy
- Electronics and Computers
- Military and Defence
- Medical and Pharmaceutical
What did we deliver?
Industrial Plastics has reached for the stars with expertise and the advanced technology that equips our warehouse. The versatility of plastic enables us to design and fabricate the most specific products to fulfil the requirements of any project, no matter how complex the application. In this opportunity, we were asked to create a test chamber for a leading aerospace company, for which we chose the unparalleled strength of acrylic.
Acrylic is widely used for experimental tanks because of its optimal resilience – resisting anything from scratches to UV radiation. It comes in a variety of colours, but can also be transparent to allow for applications where the contents need to be observed. You can rest assured that an acrylic testing tank will provide optimal insulation, thanks to the way it conducts heat and how it is welded by chemically bonding the surface for seamless sealing.
We produced an acrylic testing tank with the following specifications:
- Rectangular Acrylic Tank
- Material: 12mm Clear Acrylic
- Size: 800mm L x 500 W x 600mm H
At Industrial Plastics, we are determined to innovate our approach to fabrication by employing the most efficient technology, guaranteeing we make the highest quality plastic products available.
