• Lower manufacturing costs of both the pipes and fittings as less machining and working is required
  • High corrosion resistance which ensures long life
  • No threading or welding is required
  • Low thermal conduction and heat loss

Composite pipes are used in a wide variety of industries, from chemical plant and oil refineries to fire mains and drinking water supplies.

 

A cost effective alternative

Composite pipes offer many advantages over conventional metal pipes and usually provide a more cost effective alternative by offering lower installation costs, together with little or no maintenance.

The weight of a composite pipe is approximately 12% of that of a conventional steel pipe, thus giving ease of handling together with advantages where weight is critical, for example in off shore applications.

Major benefits

There are several benefits from bonding composite pipe joints.

  • Lower manufacturing costs of both the pipes and fittings as less machining and working is required
  • High corrosion resistance which ensures long life
  • No threading or welding is required
  • Low thermal conduction and heat loss.

Easy bonding process

These two component epoxy adhesives offer a high quality easy-to-use product. The bonding process can easily be carried out on site as our adhesives are supplied in easy-to-use, pre-measured kits or cartridges. Once the two pipes to be joined have been prepared, the resin and hardener components are mixed together and applied to the surfaces to be joined. The joint can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures with a heating jacket.
