RE: PTFE sheet lining in chemical tanks

Yes it can be done by specialist companies. The welds are accomplished using PFA, although how exactly that works with PTFE sheet material is a mystery to me- but apparently it is possible as I've had tanks successfully lined this way. The sheets are adhered to the wall using adhesives which the back side of the PTFE lining sheet is surface treated to accept. Vacuum resistance is therefore limited relative to centrifugally cast or spray applied linings. Proper design and fabrication of the tank is essential for all lined construction, and it's definitely NOT the best way to line small tanks.

RE: PTFE sheet lining in chemical tanks

thanks a lot moltenmetal for sharing a good information.
may I get some video or ebook on this process?
