The production of composite materials is rapidly developing. Made up of fibreglass and resin, they offer important advantages because of their properties:
They prolong the life cycle of these networks thanks to their mechanical properties (rigidity, resistance to fatigue), as well as their chemical properties (resistance to corrosion). Security is another important point, particularly with regard to resistance to fire and pressure (security coefficient 4 to 6 times the nominal pressure of the tube).
Depending on the characteristics of the mould and the reinforcements, we can distinguish two categories: epoxy or vinylester thermosetting composites.
By using composite piping, SBPI is able to handle the issues of weight and corrosion often encountered by manufacturers, whether because of the environment, the conditions of use, or the fluids transported.
The range of possibilities for installation covers:
This type of material needs no maintenance and lasts for a long time, due to its resistance to corrosion, both internal and external.
Installation is easy and cost effective. No welding is required, so there are no hot points. Its light weight makes handling easy and requires no heavy equipment. Special tube elements can be prefabricated in our workshops for even faster installation on site.
