PURPOSE: POLY DIKE is designed to be used as secondary containment for liquid and solid products that are considered to be harmful to the environment if leaked from their primary containment device. Applications include chemical storage tanks, hazardous material work areas, process waste treatment sites, rainwater runoff diking or similar applications.
SCOPE: This product specification covers materials, construction and workmanship, physical properties, chemical resistance and methods of testing.
MATERIAL: The Poly Dike MPE is roto-molded from ExxonMobil LLDPE 8555 resin. LL 8555 is a linear low density hexane copolymer designed to offer superior processability, excellent dimensional control, whiteness and low warpage. This resin is ideally suited for applications that require excellent surface appearance and the optimum balance of ESCR, toughness and stiffness properties.
STRUCTURE: All wall and corner components are manufactured to strict industry standards for consistency and quality. UV-4 stabilizer is included in the resin used to manufacture this product.

"I have been installing Poly Dike MPE Systems for well over a year. My business requires a system that ships easily and installs quickly with minimal personnel and tools yet provides robust spill containment in a professional looking package. The MPE System not only meets, but exceeds my expectations in each of these areas ... All-in-all, I guess what’s most impressive is that after a single installation, every customer of mine now requires that I use the Poly Dike MPE for his job site. Nothing speaks more to the confidence me and my customers have in the MPE system than that."
