Advantages

Due to the outstanding material properties of glass fibre reinforced plastics, the manufactured products offer excellent advantages and benefits:

Corrosion Resistance

  • Long, effective service life
  • No need for linings, coatings, cathodic protection, wraps or other forms of additional corrosion protection
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Hydraulic characteristics essentially constant over time

Light Weight
(1/4 weight of DIP; 1/10 weight of concrete)

  • Low transportation costs (nestable)
  • Eliminates need for expensive pipe handling equipment

Long Standard Lengths
(6 and 12 meter)

  • Fewer joints reduces installation time
  • More pipes per truckload means lower delivered cost

Superior Hydraulic Characteristics

  • Extremely smooth bore
  • Hazen Williams flow coefficient of approximately C=150
  • Low friction means less pumping energy needed and lower operating costs
  • Manning’s flow coefficient n = 0.009
  • Minimal slime build-up means lower cleaning costs
  • Excellent abrasion resistance

Precision Flowtite Coupling with Elastomeric Gaskets

  • Tight, efficient joints designed to eliminate infiltration or exfiltration
  • Ease of joining, reduces installation time
  • Accommodates small changes in line direction or differential settlements without additional fittings

Flexible Manufacturing Process

  • Custom diameters can be manufactured to provide maximum flow volumes
  • Custom lengths can be manufactured to provide maximum flexibility

Advanced Technology Pipe Design

  • Multiple pressure and stiffness classes to meet the design engineer’s criteria
  • Lower wave celerity than other piping materials can mean less cost when designing for surge and water hammer pressures
  • High and consistent product quality worldwide which complies with stringent product performance standards (ASTM, AWWA, DIN-EN...)
