Summary: Modular, fiberglass wall system that maximizes corrosion protection and physical strength, while being light weight and easy to install.
Poly Dike walls are truncated triangular structures manufactured from either 3/16” (5mm) or ¼” (6mm) thick fiberglass based on wall height. Poly dike’s unique design allows both sides of the wall to share equally in load bearing.
Poly Dike’s modular design, coupled with wall heights that vary from 12” (30.5cm) to 36” (91.4cm), allow flexible use of surface area to meet area and capacity requirements. Note, when determining the system size, the width of the Poly Dike walls should be taken into account. The Poly Dike wall varies in width from 14” (35.6cm) to 24” (61cm) based on wall height. Poly Dike systems may be may be installed in several ways to cover a wide variety of applications. The three most common methods of installation are:
To secure the system to the substrate, pre-drill holes every foot along both horizontal mounting flanges for insertion of fasteners (concrete fasteners for a concrete substrate, long spikes for other substrates).
Key Poly Dike Benefits:
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: Premium fiberglass mat and industrial grade isophthalic or vinyl ester resin as manufactured by Ashland Chemical or equivalent are used in construction. A gel coat surface resin of equal chemical resistance, with the additive antimony trioxide for flame retardance and U.V. protection is included. The flame spread rating is Class II. Tested by ASTM E-84.
Structure: All wall and corner components are manufactured to strict industry standards for consistency and quality. Fiberglass reinforced construction is formed by combining resin with controlled amounts of fiberglass cloth, mat, chop and woven roving. All models include a chemically resistant surface barrier including surface glass or veil as may be necessary for the specific application.

Operationg Temperature: Maximum operating temperature may not exceed 200 F, with excursions through
Mounting Requirements: POLY DIKE wall and corner components are to be fastened to concrete with industrial fasteners as manufactured by Hilti or equivalent. Fastener diameters must be a minimum of 1/8”, with a minimum spacing of 12” between fasteners. Adhesion to a concrete floor to be a minimum 3/16” thickness and 4” wide.
Component Joining: Finished joining of components to be built up in successive layers, to be as strong as the pieces being joined and as crevice-free as is commercially feasible. Minimum joint lamination width is 2”. Successive layers must increase in size and overlap each other until a thickness equal to the component is achieved.
Quality Assurance: POLY DIKE is manufactured and tested according to industry standards PS 15-69 and 41-GP-22 Canadian and SPI/MTI Quality Assurance Report for FRP Corrosion resistance Equipment.

"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."
