Abstract: The permeability of various fuels through polymer films and laminated materials based thereon, which are used in the production of elastic storage tanks for oil products, has been investigated. It was found that the minimum difference in the solubility parameters of high / low pressure polyethylene and fuels determines the high solubility of fuels in the tank shell. The large difference in the solubility parameters of polyamide, polyethylene terephthalate and fuels provides a relatively low solubility of fuels in these polymers. The dependence of the permeability of fuels in films based on a mixture of polyethylene of various grades was revealed. The effectiveness of the use of laminated materials is determined by a combination of the composition of polymer films, gasoline standard and its temperature. The optimal combination of films was found for producing laminated materials with minimal gasoline permeability. Polyamide-based films have minimal permeability.

Keywords: elastic tanks, fuel, polymer films, polymer permeability, oil products.
