Composite materials can be easily adapted to the on-site conditions in terms of design and pipeline routing at low cost, without having to comply with standardised component dimensions. This allows flange connections to be minimised and the associated risk of leaks to be significantly reduced.
FRP pipe systems are suitable for almost every area of application in industry, as they convince with their outstanding properties, especially in pipeline construction, when high safety requirements have to be met in plants and large mechanical or chemical loads have to be mastered.
These are just a few reasons to rely on piping systems made of FRP composite materials for industrial corrosion protection. We help you to select the material specifically for the requirements of your system and take care of the assembly. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ultimate composite system KERAVERIN® PTFE-M
Especially in the piping system sector, Steuler Linings has succeeded in laminating pipes of modified PTFE with a carbon fibre fabric under specific production conditions. In combination with the applied FRP reinforcement, a unique high-performance composite tube system is created. The resulting bond strength is so high that failure due to thermally induced stresses – different thermal expansion behaviour of liner and reinforcement material – or vacuum loading cannot occur. This enables operation even under vacuum and leads to a long service life.
By using the appropriate resin systems, components can be designed that can be used in pipeline construction up to an operating temperature of 160 °C. A significantly improved weldability and lower permeability characterise the PTFE-M liner. This enables a noticeable reduction of flange connections and an individual geometry. The leak risk is minimised and the repair and maintenance costs are reduced which means improved safety for personnel and the environment, whilst also reducing operating costs.
