Lining & Coating

Plastichem is a specialist company operating in all industries where there is a corrosion problem. We produce fluoropolymer linings for vessels, pipework and other equipment using PTFE, PVDF, ECTFE, FEP, PFA, MFA, PVC, CPVC, PPH, and PE.

Plastichem also has a composites division specialising in GRP / FRP linings for lower duty corrosion applications.

The Plastichem project team can deal with your lining requirement by supplying either the complete lined vessel or by lining your free issue items.

Bonded Sheet Linings

Bonded sheet linings are available in PVDF, ECTFE (Halar), ETFE, FEP and PFA utilising fabric backed fluoropolymer sheet laminate and Plastichem’s unique in-house developed vacuum bonding techniques enabling operation at elevated temperatures and vacuum operating conditions. Thermoplastic linings are also available in Polypropylene and Polyethylene.

Un-Bonded Linings

This type of lining process does not rely on bonding of the liner to the steel and is therefore capable of operating at higher temperatures. These linings are available in FEP, PFA and PTFE and for larger equipment the lining can be mechanically fixed to the shell. This type of lining is suitable for temperatures up to 260 deg C depending on the application.


Rotoliniing is a seamless lining technique for pipes and vessels where the application of a thick fluoropolymer lining is desirable.

Composite FRP/GRP Linings

Linings are produced using glass reinforcement impregnated with chemical resistant resins and finished with C Glass or Synthetic layers to form a final corrosion barrier.
The resins used by Plastichem are primarily Vinylester Epoxies due to their excellent chemical resistance properties.
These systems provide an extremely cost effective solution typically for storage vessels and similar equipment.

Fluoropolymer Coatings

Coatings materials include PTFE, PFA, PVDF, ECTFE and ETFE. The spray application process has a limitation to the thickness that can be achieved which depends on the material type.
