Fiberglass Piping

The last decades have seen a large growth in the use of Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping. The most common materials for FRP piping are Glass Reinforced Poly/Vinyl-ester resin (GRP/V) and Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) resin. Their uses differ per production process and product size. The advantages of FRP piping compared to traditional steel piping are the superior corrosion resistance as well as considerably lower weight. The lower weight results in easier and more cost effective handling of the piping. Dynaflow Research Group has a long standing experience with fiberglass piping. DRG has been involved in R&D of many different Fiberglass applications for various suppliers, users and research institutes. DRG is a founding member of the ISO14692 committee, the DNV Committee for certification of fiberglass craftsmanship and is (co-)author of many technical papers and code contributions. DRG is often consulted by many of the major fiberglass suppliers as an independent consultant for our practical approach to fiberglass engineering solutions.
