What is Thermoplastic?

Thermoplastic is a class of polymer that can be softened through heating and then processed using methods such as extrusion, injection molding and thermoforming. Thermoplastics, once hardened do not show any changes in chemical properties and can be recycled. Thermoplastics are lightweight, have good chemical resistance and energy efficient processing.

What is HydraStone?

HydraStone is a specialty cement-based tank lining that is used to line the inside of any potable water storage vessel with access to hot water tanks. HydraStone has a 40-year history, certified to CSA and NSF-61 standards.
