Characteristics of FGPR pipe walls
Liner or chemical resistant layer:
Rich of resin, this layer carries out two fundamental functions, impermeability and chemical resistance. Each time therefore, based on the applications, it will be designed calibrating the composition of elements that it is made of;
Mechanical resistant layer:
This layer, differently from the liner, is instead rich of fibres. This contributes to giving the mechanical stress resistance characteristics (pressure, etc…). In its structure it is possible to insert aggregates which, depending on the application, are able to adjust viscosity, conductivity, flame retardant, each time, just to mention some of the peculiarities it is possible to operate on;
Gel coat or external layer:
Designed to guarantee complete impregnation of the surface fibres, depending on the applications, it can have additives such as agents blocking U.V. rays or even be protected by a layer of N.W.F. (Non Woven Fabric), which customers at times have requested in specific colors.
For CMA by VED operating in the composites sector means continuous research and development of new products, new applications, new production techniques in line with the latest scientific research.
