Striking Distance Uses Diab’s Divinycell in Tanks for Quick Corp Fire Engineering

June 19 2017

As a well-known manufacturer of fiberglass composite products, Striking Distance in Queensland, Australia, has been contracted by Quick Corp Fire Engineering to deliver a fiberglass tank for the company’s new off-road fire tanker. The task was set to design a tank that was both lighter and could carry more water to improve the effectiveness of the tanker in a fire emergency situation.
The final design of the tank used infused Divinycell foam cored sandwich panels with E-Glass skins and vinylester resin to reduce weight yet maintain structural strength. To further increase the carrying capacity of the tank the foam core was reduced in thickness. The final core specification was Divinycell H100 15mm thick. The total weight saving of the final tank was 250 kg compared to the original design.
