RTRP Piping Systems (GRE/GRV/GRP)


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

RTRP is Reinforce Thermosetting Resin pipe & is a Non-metallic piping system with varied applications for use in Process Industries. RTRP piping systems are also known as GRE or FRP piping systems. You may also hear of terms such as GRP (glass reinforced plastic), RTP (reinforced thermosetting plastic) and RTRP (reinforced thermosetting resin pipe). Even more specific, there is GRE (glass reinforced epoxy), GRVE (glass reinforced vinyl ester) and GRUP (glass reinforced unsaturated polyester). The list of terms seems to go on and on.

Typical applications include Potable Water, Sea Water, water treatment, fire water, sewer systems, industrial & chemical Fluids.
