Steel: The Material of Choice
The Steel Advantage
Steel is the material of choice at
Highland Tank because of its many
advantages, and it should be yours
too. As a construction material,
steel is strong, affordable, reliable
and environmentally friendly. Steel’s
unique combination of properties and
characteristics enable it to achieve
performance levels required in today’s
storage tanks. Because of its product
compatibility, steel is the best choice
for your liquid storage needs, including
motor fuels, biofuels, heating oils,
aviation fuels, lube oils and chemicals.
Specified for Strength
We buy steel according to our own
strict guidelines and rigid ASTM
specifications. All of our mild carbon
steel is fine grain with superior
toughness and surface quality that
offers both weldability and improved
corrosion resistance. The time-tested
strength and performance of steel
remains unparalleled.
Steel’s structural integrity can withstand
even extreme weather conditions or
natural disasters. State-of-the-art
fabrication technology, welding, interior
linings and exterior coatings reinforce
the durability of Highland’s mild carbon
and stainless steel products.
Environmental Benefits
Steel has the highest recycling
rate of any durable material in the
United States. Unlike concrete or
plastic storage tanks, or even those
reinforced with fiberglass, recycled
steel storage tanks ultimately keep a
valuable commodity out of the nation’s
landfills. In addition, the latest recycling
processes drastically reduce industrial
emissions by over 70% to air and
water, accompanied by a reduction
of approximately 30% in the amount of
energy required to produce new steel.
Superior Structual Strength
Recycled steel products
are important to projects
striving to achieve LEED
certification. Highland Tank
can help companies earn
valuable Materials and
Resources credits.
