The Material

Australia’s climatic conditions are some of the toughest in the world. Australian manufactured hexane polyethylene has been formulated to provide maximum UV radiation protection and is specifically designed to suit the needs of rotationally moulded tanks in Australia.

If you are replacing old tanks or planning new ones, you should consider your options. You will find that tanks and troughs moulded from polyethylene are:

  • UV resistant for Australian conditions
  • made from the only medium density polyethylene produced in Australia

Practical Plastics NT Pty Ltd manufactures water tanks to comply to standards - ASTM D:1998-91 and AS/NZS4766 (Int):2002, FDA CFR21 (USA). 

All polymer used is tank grade and approved for the storage of food and potable water with UV24.  All materials are of Australian origin and manufacture. Practical Plastic NT Pty Ltd tanks are one piece construction for tough, stress free and overall construction strength and ease of installation.
