Aquatan provider of rubber linings for reservoirs, dams, and mining applications, has been a user of Fischer express stainless steel anchors for rubber geomembrane liners many years.
Aquatan installed the original rubber linings for a reservoir at a water treatment plant in Cape Town in 1991. These rubber linings have held firmly, without a single failure, thanks to fischer express stainless steel anchors.
The success is particularly notable given it is such a highly corrosive and humid application.
