Why TITAN Tanks Are the Best You Can Buy
The bodies of all TITAN Fuel Tanks are made of one remarkable material: High-Density Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLHDPE).
XLHDPE is one of those space-age materials which performs amazing feats, such as superior performance in any weather, in extreme hot or cold temperatures. With its seamless design, the TITAN Fuel Tank is one piece – and very tough.
The Difference Is Molecular Bond
The term “Cross-Linked” means that the molecular “chains” that make up the polymer are chemically bonded together, or “bridged,” to form a continuous three-dimensional structure. This allows impact energy to be dissipated throughout the chain of molecules.
TITAN (Cross-Linked) vs. OEM (Linear)
20 times the environmental stress crack resistance
10 times the molecular weight
5 times the impact strength
Superior Chemical and Impact Resistance
Compared to commonly used materials like Linear Polyethylene and many grades of stainless steel tanks, Cross-Linked Polyethylene has the widest range of chemical resistance and superior impact strength. TITAN Tanks won’t corrode, are especially well-suited for bio-diesel applications, and are much less subject to the formation of condensation.
U.S. Department of Defense Standards
On the battlefield performance isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. That’s why the U.S. Department of Defense uses the very same processes and materials as TITAN for fuel tanks in some of the U.S. Military’s combat vehicles.
TITAN has hundreds of dealers across the United States. TITAN Diesel Tanks are sold throughout the U.S., Canada, and Australia, wherever American diesel trucks roll.
