SAMSUNG GRP GRP WATER TANK OVERSEAS EXPORT DATA
SAMSUNG PANEL
THE SAMSUNG PANEL TYPE WATER TANK
KEEPS WATER COLD
Glass fiber reinforced plastic has a very low thermal conductivity. The actual value is approximately 1/240th of the value for steel A typical problem with steel tanks has always been the high thermal conductivity and expansion coefficient of steel. These characteristics can cause loosening of the panel connecting bolts in areas of wide temperature change. GRP panels,however, are not affected to such a high degree. Thus, the water stored in GRP panel tanks will not reach the high temperatures to which the outside of the tank is exposed in semi-tropical or tropical zones. SAMSUNG has successfully developed specially insulated panels to meet the temperature extremes of tropical or arctic regions and has conducted a wide range of tests at both the high and low temperature levels.
STRUCTURE OF HEAT INSULATED PANEL
The SAMSUNG insulated panel has specially developed low thermal conductive rigid polyurethane foam, fabric in between GRP single panel and GRP cover as shown below. These panels`are used for the side and bottom and roof of the tanks. Since an air layer exists between the roof and the water level,which itself acts as a thermal insulation, single panels are used for the roof. Other company's insulate panel cannot endue by high temperature. But SAMSUNG panel used inside fabric for strong adhesion panel and polyurethan foam.

The Advantages Of The SAMSUNG MMD Panel Manufacturing Method
MMD Method SMC Method
Uses long continuous filament fibre for extremely high strength!
Panel
Uses Highly suitable for high water pressure!
Highly suitable for water storage.
Uses short-strand fibre which gives rise to questions regarding strength!
Suitable
for low water pressure applications!
Suitable for bathtubs (depth of 0.3m - 0.5m) and other items that only need to bear the weight of a single individual, such as chairs and the like.

SAMSUNG Panel Tank manufacturing Technology
There are 2 basic methods for the manufacture of panel tanks : GRP and SMC
SAMSUNG utilises its exclusive MMD method. The MMD method introduced by SAMSUNG and it continues to be the most superior method of manufacturing today. On the other hand, other manufacturers employ the SMC method. The difference between these two methods is that the MMD method uses long continuous strand fibreglass, adding resin and then submitting the mixture to pressure before the final moulding process. The SMC method used by all other panel tank manufacturers mixes short-chopped strand fibreglass and resin in a "clay-like" mixture. In terms of product characteristic, this means that panels manufactured under our GRP method are not only thinner and lighter, but the long continuous strand fibreglass maked them a product for superior in strength to all others. Through our hot press moulding method, stability in product quality is asured even high volume production.
