COMPOSOLITE® Secondary Containment Systems

The COMPOSOLITE® Secondary Containment System is ideal for use in any application requiring secure containment of liquid or solid materials. The system was initially developed in conjunction with American Electric Power and has been widely accepted by many utilities. Current installations number over 500.
