The main applications for FIBERBOND® products are in the offshore oil and gas industry, chemical and petrochemical industry, pulp and paper industry and marine industry.
The FIBERBOND® product is an alternative to stainless steels, copper-nickel pipe, other alloys and other reinforced and non-reinforced plastics at temperatures up to 121° C and pressures up to 290psig (20.0 bar).
FIBERBOND® Piping Systems are designed, produced, installed, tested and certified as complete systems and are suitable for new construction, expansion, and retrofit projects.
FIBERBOND® Engineered Composite Piping Systems
All FIBERBOND® products use a glass-fiber reinforcement bound in a resin matrix. The glass-fibers provide the strength and the resin matrix provides the superior corrosion resistance. Together, the composite attains the excellent properties of both components. FIBERBOND® products are filament wound products using a winding angle of 54°, which is the principal axis of loading for internal pressure. FIBERBOND® Series 20HV, 20FR-E, 20FR16, 20FR20, 20JF, 20JF16, and 110FW among others, utilize this winding pattern.
The resin systems used vary from isophthalic polyesters and epoxy vinyl esters to specialty resins for custom applications. The glass reinforcement includes filament rovings and unidirectional and bi-directional woven products.
FIBERBOND® Custom Piping Systems
In addition to the FIBERBOND® Fiberglass and Advanced Composite Piping Series, we also offer a custom line of piping systems. FIBERBOND® custom products are pipe systems engineered by Future Pipe Industries to meet individual customer specifications. By customizing the system, an optimum pipe product is produced saving the customer time and material. Fiberbond products can also be made to include specific characteristics, such as fire endurance, electrical conductivity, as well as low smoke and low products of combustion.
Fiberbond is suitable to be used across a number of applications:
