- Concrete tanks – For construction of water or effluent plants, FUSION® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks offer fast build times and a flexible, low maintenance structure which gives a viable economic alternative to traditional concrete tank construction.
- Epoxy coated tanks – Bolted steel and welded steel tanks offer the advantages of steel strength, but FUSION® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks also give the advantage of the high degree of protection offered by the premium vitreous enamel finish. Unlike epoxy coated tanks, Glass-Fused-to-Steel should never need to be recoated.
- Other Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks – Fusion are known as the world leader in the development of Glass-Fused-to-Steel technology. This has led to a range of high performance finishes which are detailed in the technical section.
- Stainless steel tanks – The hygienic and corrosion resistant finish of Glass-Fused-to-Steel matches the common grades of stainless steel in many areas. However, Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks utilise the higher strength of carbon steel for a more cost-effective solution.
