Why Corrosive Environments Are Perfect for FRP Pipeline Applications

26 Feb.,2022

"Corrosion" is not a word that contractors, homeowners or business owners want to hear. Corrosion is a chemical reaction that damages or destroys a structure or some of its components. FRP wraps, FRP piping and FRP repairs are a great way to prevent or remedy the effects of corrosion.

What are the qualities of FRP?

FRP, or fiber reinforced plastic, is a composite material; a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers. The fibers are usually glass, although they can also be carbon, basalt or aramid. 

FRP is a flexible material that is useful for Solar energy sources and FRP ducting applications because it can be formed into complex shapes.FRP has a long service life and is an affordable solution for many applications. It is lightweight, has excellent temperature resistance, provides thermal insulation, and has excellent mechanical strength.FRP has a smooth surface, making this material ideal for product flow.FRP products are easy to repair and require minimal maintenance.FRP materials are ideal for field installation.

What industries use FRP materials?

FRP is used in many industrial applications where the handling of corrosive elements is critical. FRP uses include situations where chemical, flammable and combustible liquids need to be handled, where wet or dry gases are handled, and where water and sewer treatment facilities are used. 

FRP products include tanks, chimney liners, ductwork, nozzles and piping systems. 

 

FRP Piping Applications

Features of FRP piping and ducting applications include flexible shapes that can be round, oval or rectangular to meet complex installation configurations. A wide range of joints and a variety of fittings and connections are available. Piping systems or ducts can be fiber-wound or contract formed, and full vacuum and pressure service can be provided.

 

What are corrosives?

Corrosives include acids such as hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, acetic acid and chromic acid. Alkalis can also be corrosive and include sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide and ammonium hydroxide. Other chemicals can also be corrosive, and FRP materials are resistant to corrosion. 

 

Why FRP Repair Can Be Ideal

FRP is ideal for repairs. FRP repairs provide materials with high strength-to-weight ratios, excellent dimensional stability, long service life, easy installation and low maintenance costs. That's why FRP materials, including FRP packaging, are so widely used in industrial applications such as water and chemical storage and power plants.  

Most importantly, FRP installations and FRP repairs are highly corrosion resistant.
