Pulp & Paper
Industrial fibreglass was developed in the 1950s to handle the corrosive liquors of the pulp and paper mills, especially the strong bleaching compounds like chlorine and chlorine dioxide. Engineers at pulp and paper plants are well versed in the benefits of fibreglass, due to many successful case histories worldwide. Armatec is a key supplier of fibreglass tanks, process pipes, sewers, hoods, ducting, stacks, fans, scrubbers, coatings etc to New Zealand pulp and paper plants.
Formaldehyde fumes released during the manufacture of particle board were causing complaints from neighbours. This limited the production and expansion plans for the plant, and raised levels of formaldehyde in working areas of the plant.
