Technical Note on FRP

FRP reinforced plastic pipe is chemically and structurally engineered with the proper balance of resin and glass to resist a wide range of acids, alkalis and solvents as well as weathering, spillage and corrosive fumes. This excellent combination of corrosion resistance and strength characteristics is achieved through “Laminate Construction”, based on years of extensive research and practical applications.

Fibreglass pipe and fittings offer excellent resistance to a wide range of corrosive liquids and gases and to the types of aqueous solutions frequently encountered in chemical processing industries. In addition to their resistance to internal corrosion, pitting and sealing, FRP pipe and fittings are immune to virtually all external corrosion, will not rust and never required any form of cathodic protection.

Chemical Resistance

FRP pipe is specially designed and engineered to resist practically any corrosive material. This versatility, due to the variety of resins available has permitted FRP pipe to play a key role in reducing corrosion control problems in virtually every major industry.

  • Bell and Spigot Joints – particularly for joining sections of large diameter pipe.
  • Butt Joints – This is the simplest and most economical method of filed joining pipe.

FRP pipes are easily repaired or modified for new system layouts. Pipe can be cut to any desired shape with a hack saw, power saw, or sabre saw.
