Seeking polyethylene tank lining ......

Am seeking the manufacturuer(s) of polyethylene sheet with pre-bonded 'scrim' that allows facing the internals of a large potable water tank. Such sheeting is typically epoxied to a base material (FRG), then the seams are stick welded with polyethylene 'candles'/UHMWPE wire. The advantages are obvious -- minimal 'leachables' into the potable water.
I've done a fairly exhaustive websearch (thomas register, etc.) for such material and am becoming frustrated in locating such a sheeting manufacturer. I know this material is available but can't seem to find a supplier.

Anyone who can offer location, names of such manufacturers/supplier .... info would be very much appreciated.

Tap Plastic

Rich, if US Plastics can't help, try www.tapplastics.com. Here is a quote from their web site,

"Polyethylene. At our TAP Plastics stores we carry a wide variety of polyethlene. Unable to come to a TAP store? Email us with your cut-to-size requirements and we'll promptly return a quote."

If they don't have what you want they might be able to help you find a supplier.
