ABOUT ALKATUFF

What is Alkatuff?

alkatuff-polyethylene

Alkatuff is a unique Australian made brand of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). It has been designed by Qenos specifically for plastic water tanks.

As the name suggests, polyethylene (PE) is a plastic made by joining many molecules of ethylene gas together into long polymer chains. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) also uses a co-monomer to impart certain properties to the resin. Many polyethylene plants around the world use butene (C4 molecule) as the co-monomer. Qenos uses a superior hexene co-monomer (C6 molecule) to give improved performance across all resin applications but particularly tanks.

Alkatuff is manufactured by Qenos

Qenos is Australia’s leading manufacturer of world class polyethylene.  Qenos supplies Alkatuff resin to compound grinders who add colour to the resin and grind it into powder form suitable for the rotational moulding process.

Qenos supplies polyethylene resin to a variety of industries, including the food and beverage industries, waste management (mobile garbage bins), mining and agriculture sectors.  With a long and proud Australian history, and more than 700 locally employed staff, Qenos is a brand you can trust. As such, Alkatuff is a name you can trust as well.

When you are shopping for a water tank, make sure it is produced from locally made Alkatuff poly resin. Ask your supplier for Alkatuff by name, in order to ensure you are purchasing a product specifically designed for the local conditions, built to be Tough in the Sun.
