All Future Pipe Industries products are manufactured in accordance with international standards using the latest technology utilizing Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP), Glass Reinforced Vinyl ester (GRV) and Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) depending on the needs of your project. Our range of composite pipe diameters ranges from 25 mm (1”) up to 4,000 mm (160”), with a pressure range up to 3,500 psi.
Helical FILAMENT winding process
Pipes are produced using the helical (reciprocal) filament winding process by which impregnated glass fiber reinforcement with resin are applied onto a precision steel mandrel in a prescribed pattern. Repeated application of wetted fibers results in a multi-layered structural wall construction of the required thickness.
Continuous FILAMENT winding process
Pipes are produced on a continuous filament winding machine. This machine consists of a mandrel composed of a helical wound continuous steel band, supported by beams forming a cylindrical shape. As the formed mandrel turns creating a multi-layered structural wall of the required thickness.
Spoolable winding process
Our Reinforced Thermo Plastic (RTP) technology produces fully bonded pipe manufactured in continuous lengths up to 1000m/3280ft (depending on pipe diameter). It is the latest technology in the market and combining three thermoplastic layers; a thermoplastic (HDPE) liner, reinforced by a helically wrapped tape containing continuous fiber (uni-directional) in a HDPE matrix, and protected by a thermoplastic outer coating (or “jacket”). All three layers are melt-fused together ensuring a faultless bond. The pipe is flexible and is spooled onto reels.
