Find a Poly Tank made from Alkatuff
Looking for a water tank? There’s no doubt that poly tanks are New Zealand’s first choice for water storage. They’re light, clean, proven and ideally suited to withstand New Zealand’s harsh and unrelenting environment for the long term.
Plastic or “poly” water tanks are made from polyethylene, a safe, tough and recyclable plastic that is also to package food and beverages such as milk.
Alkatuff is an Australian made polyethylene that is specifically engineered for the production of poly water tanks for New Zealand conditions. Alkatuff is made with a hexene (C6) comonomer, giving superior impact strength, stress crack resistance and long-term toughness than tanks made with a standard butene (C4) resin.
Alkatuff has more than twice the UV protection specified in the New Zealand Standard for polyethylene tanks. The New Zealand Standard for water tanks requires that the material has a UV8 rating while Alkatuff has a rating greater than UV20.
Alkatuff has high thermal stability and is less prone to oxidation, discolouration and loss of toughness making it ideal for use in rotational molded water tanks produced for the demands the harsh New Zealand environment. Make sure your next tank is made from Alkatuff so you can be sure it’s Tough in the Sun.
