Selection of materials
The properties associated with a certain material are of
key importance when it comes to deciding on which plastics
to use within the area of tank and apparatus building.
The following pages provide further information on the mate-
rials used by SIMONA.
B&A_gb_rz.indd 9 21.04.09 16:36
Material properties
Applications within the field of tank and apparatus building
are dependent on materials with particularly high perform-
ance characteristics. After all, the challenges posed by
chemicals, corrosion, temperature fluctuations and structural
stress are formidable.
With a comprehensive portfolio ranging from PE, PP and PVC
to PVDF and E-CTFE, SIMONA offers the perfect solution to
meet virtually any requirement.

High-density polyethylene
(PE-HD)
Alongside its outstanding pro-
cessability, PE-HD displays
high chemical resistance and
offers strength and rigidity
within a temperature range of
between 50 C and +80 C.
Owing to different creep proper-
ties, SIMONAhigh-density
poly ethylene materials are di-
vided into the three categories
PE-HD, PE 80 and PE 100.
High-molecular-weight
poly ethylene (PE- HMW)
PE-HMW combines high strength
with good rigidity, as well as
allowing efficient processing.
The temperature range is from
100 C to +80 C. PE-HML
500 offers good chemical res-
istance and superior stress
crack re s istance in relation to
a wide range of media.
Polypropylene (PP -H/PP- C)
Compared to PE, polypropylene
offers increased stiffness, espe-
cially in the upper temperature
range (up to +100 C). Among
its key characteristics are high
chemical resistance and favoura-
ble results in long-term testing
when exposed to many organic
and inorganic media, even at
high temperatures. PP-C can be
deployed in a temperature
range from 20 C to +80 C.
Polyvinylchloride (PVC- U)
PVC-U offers high strength and
stiffness. Its temperature range
is between 0 C and +60 C.
PVC-U also displays good resist-
ance when exposed to organic
and inorganic chemicals as well
as oxidising media.
Post-chlorinated polyvinyl-
chloride (PVC- C)
Owing to its increased chlorine
content, PVC-C offers outstand-
ing chemical resistance, particu-
larly to acids, alkalis and salts.
As a result, it is a perfect choice
for applications associated with
the chemical process industry.
The temperature range is from
40 C to +95 C.
Polyvinylidenefluoride (PVDF)
PVDF is a partially fluorinated
high-performance plastic that
can be deployed at temperatures
ranging from 30 C to +140 C;
it is resistant to the majority of
organic and inorganic media.
Ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene
(E -CTFE)
As a partially fluorinated high-
performance plastic, E-CTFE
offers a wide temperature range
from 40 C to +150 C. In
addition, E-CTFE displays an
extremely high level of chemical
resistance, which includes the
alkaline range.

SIMONA Semi-finished plastics for
linings and composite construction
SIMONA offers a wide range of materials specially designed
for linings used in steel and concrete containers as well
as for thermoplastic and GRP composite engineering. While
PVC can be directly bonded with reaction resins, fabric
backings are required to create a firm bond for polyolefins
(PE, PP) and fluorinated plastics (PVDF, E-CTFE).

Traction-adhesive strength
Average values in MPa
(from internal quality control)
(Palatal A 410 = unsaturated poly-
ester resin)
Result: The values measured in
the case of SIMONAmaterials
are superior to those required by
DIN. Therefore, the operational
safety reserves associated with
these materials are considerably
higher.
Shear test
in accordance with BS 4994
(British Standard) based on
DIN 65148
For the dimensioning and design
of vessels and tanks in rein-
forced plastic, a minimum bond
strength of 7.0 MPa is specified
for liner construction at an ambi-
ent temperature of 23 C.
Shear strength
Average values in MPa
(from internal quality control)
(Palatal A 410 = unsaturated poly-
ester resin)
Result: SIMONAmaterials
achieve excellent values, guaran-
teeing outstanding bond strength
of the liner construction.
Temperature range
The fabric backings on SIMONA
materials bond firmly to the base
material, even at higher tempera-
tures. The following upper oper-
ating temperatures can be speci-
fied, irrespective of the resin
system used:
PE-HWU-SK 60 C
PP-C-PK/PP-DWU-SK
AlphaPlus 85 C
PVC-CAW/PVC-MZ 60 C
PVDF-SK 80 C
PVDF-GK/E-CTFE-GK 100 C
Adhesion-promoting systems
SIMONA supplies sheets with
three different adhesion-promot-
ing systems:
SK Thermoplastic polyester
backings
GK Glass-fibre backings
PK Polymer backings
These fabric backings form
an optimal mechanical bridge
between the lining and the base
material requiring protection
against corrosion. The following
test procedures provide informa-
tion on the quality of the bond.
Traction-adhesive strength test
based on DIN 53766-1
The minimum bond strength
between the lining material
and the supporting laminate is
generally defined by the clients
company standards. The follow-
ing guide values are assumed
for the minimum bond strengths
in the traction-adhesive strength
test (at an ambient temperature
of 23 C):
PVC/GF-UP 7 MPa
PVDF/GF-UP 5 MPa
PP/GF-UP 3.5 MPa

On June 1, 2007, the European chemicals
law which had applied up to that date was
replaced by the socalled REACh Regulation
(EU Regula tion 1907/2006/EC). REACh
stands for Registration, Evaluation, Author-
isation and Restriction of Chemicals.
One of the rules specified by the REACh
Regulation is that all substances (chemicals
and preparations) which are manufactured
in the EU or are imported to the EU have
to be preregis-tered and registered with the
European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). The
REACh Regulation applies to chemicals and
preparations. Polymers are explicitly ex-
cluded from registration and evaluation (as
per Article 2 Para. 9).
The SIMONArange of products comprises
semifinished parts, pipes and fittings which
are made solely of polymer materials.
Therefore, they are not subject to the REACh
Regulation. As a plastics processing com-
pany, we cannot have our products registered,
nor are we obliged to.
Within the scope of the supply chain
described by REACh, plastics processing
companies are socalled downstream
users. One of our obligations as down-
stream users is to verify the fact that our
own suppliers handle the raw materials
delivered to us in a REACh-compliant man-
ner. We met our obligations within this
area during the pre-registration phase from
1.6. - 30.11.2008. If the availability of indi-
vidual raw materials is limited by REACh
in future, we will switch to REACh-compliant
alternatives.
In addition, we are obliged to disclose infor-
mation about the constituents of our prod-
ucts: we confirm that our products do not
contain any substances in concentrations
of > 0.1% (w/w) which are on the candidate
list (Candidate List of Substances of Very
High Concern, SVHC) issued by the European
Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
As downstream users, we are enjoined to
inform our suppliers how the raw materi-
als delivered to us are used (in our case:
manufacture of semi-finished plastics, pipes,
fittings and finished products by means of
extrusion, pressing and injection moulding)
so that the use becomes a so-called identi-
fied use. In order to improve the exchange
of information along the supply chain, it is
advantageous to also receive information
about how our customers subject our prod-
ucts to further processing. Please feel free to
pass this information on to us by contacting
us at reach@simona.de.

SIMONASIMCHEM
SIMCHEM 6.0 Chemical
resistance data on CD-ROM
SIMCHEM 6.0 is a reliable and
comprehensive guide when it
comes to determining the chem-
ical resistance of materials
used in our products.
It lists more than 3,000 media
and proprietary products.
Additionally, SIMCHEM provides
extensive information about
our products and materials, as
well as outlining SIMONAs
business activities.
An extensive database on the chemical resistance of SIMONAmaterials, featuring
more than 3,000 listed substances.
The sixth edition of SIMCHEM has
been fully reviewed and is an
important guide for your day-to-day
operations. Please be advised
that all data presented in this ver-
sion reflects our scope of
knowledge at the point of publi-
cation. The latest version of
SIMCHEM is based on findings
from immersion testing as
part of which test specimens were
subjected to different tempe-
ratures in the medium in question,
free from external stresses.
The data derived from testing is
complemented by case study
reports, recommendations by raw
material manufacturers as well
as extensive data relating to
standards, directives and guide-
lines.
