Ten Advantages Of Glass Fiber

Nov. 28, 2019

1. Corrosion resistance and no pollution

Fiberglass Pipe is resistant to acid, alkali, salt, seawater, untreated sewage, corrosive soil or groundwater and many chemical fluids. Glass fiber pipes have the excellent characteristics of non-toxic, rust-free, odorless, no secondary pollution to water quality, and no need for anticorrosion. Therefore, they are widely used in the water supply and drainage industry. In addition, Fiberglass Storage Tank also has this feature, which can store various media.


2. Anti-fouling

The surface of the pipeline uses unsaturated polyester resin, so its surface is clean and smooth, and will not be contaminated by microorganisms such as shellfish and fungi in the ocean or sewage, which will increase the roughness, reduce the cross section of water, and increase maintenance costs. The pipeline is free of these pollutions, and it is as clean as long-term use.


3 heat and frost resistance

In the state of -30℃, it still has good toughness and high strength. It can be used for a long time in the range of -50℃ -80℃. The resin with special formula can also work at temperatures above 110℃.


4. Light weight, high strength, easy transportation, easy installation and installation. The fiberglass pipes produced by the fiber winding process can be designed to meet various internal and external pressure requirements according to different requirements of users. Its socket connection method is quick and easy to install, at the same time reduces the installation cost and greatly improves the installation speed.


5. Small friction resistance, high conveying capacity

The inside wall of Fiberglass Pipe is very smooth, and the roughness and friction are very small. The glass fiber tube can significantly reduce the fluid pressure loss along the process and improve the conveying capacity. Fiberglass pipes reduce head loss and save pumping costs compared to other materials. In addition, fiberglass piping reduces pumping time and reduces long-term operating costs.

6. Good electrical insulation

Glass fiber is non-conductor, and the electrical insulation of the pipeline is excellent. It is most suitable for power transmission.


7. Good abrasion resistance

Put water containing a large amount of mud, sand and gravel into the tube for a comparative test of the effects of rotary abrasion. After 3 million rotations, the wear depth of the inner wall of the test tube is as follows: 0.53 mm for tar and enamel-coated steel tubes, 0.52 mm for epoxy-coated and tar-coated steel tubes, and glass fiber treated with surface hardening The tube is 0.21mm. Therefore, the glass fiber has good abrasion resistance.


8. Low maintenance cost

Because of the above-mentioned properties of anti-corrosion, abrasion resistance, anti-freezing and anti-fouling, the glass fiber tube does not require measures and maintenance of anti-rust, anti-fouling, insulation and heat preservation. Cathodic protection is not required for buried pipes, which can save engineering maintenance costs by more than 70%.


9. Good designability

Glass fiber tube can be designed and manufactured into pipes with different pressure levels and stiffness levels according to various specific requirements of users, such as different flow rates, different pressures, different burial depths and load conditions.


10. Long life and good comprehensive benefits

According to laboratory simulation tests, the life of glass fiber pipes can be up to 50 years. The comprehensive benefit refers to the long-term nature formed by various factors such as construction investment, installation and maintenance costs, service life, energy saving, and steel saving. The comprehensive benefit of glass fiber pipes is desirable, especially the larger the diameter, the lower the cost. When it is further considered that the buried pipeline has a long service life without annual maintenance, the comprehensive benefit is good.


The above are the top ten advantages of fiberglass introduced by Fiberglass Pipe Manufacturers. Hope to help you.
