Silos can be built in different materials such as concrete, stainless steel, aluminum or steel. At M.I.P. we only produce silos in glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP). GRP consists of a combination of polyester, resin & fiberglass.
Why do we use composite as a building material for our silos? When resin is cured, it is resistant to chemicals and various weather conditions. We would like to explain a few other advantages:
- Corrosion Resistant & Maintenance Free: Composite is, unlike other metals, impermeable to water, gases & vapours. Because the material does not rust, composite storage systems require almost no maintenance.
- Free design: composite systems & accessories are produced on molds, which means that they can be manufactured in any shape or design.
- Insensitive to condensation: due to its high thermal insulation value, silos in composite are less sensitive to condensation. This ensures product quality.
