Insul-Tek® Fiber Clad® Conduit
Insul-Tek® Fiber Clad Containment Piping Systems utilize a corrosion proof exterior cladding of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (F.R.P.). The F.R.P. cladding is filament wound directly onto the exterior steel containment casing thus providing a 100 mil thick corrosion barrier on the steel containment casing. The composite material; steel and fiberglass, provides the durability and strength of steel and the corrosion resistance of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (F.R.P.). Insul-Tek: piping is an alternative to the outdated type of steel containment piping that is dependant upon some type of coating that is applied to the surface of the steel casing. Such coatings are highly susceptible to damage during loading, off-loading and during installation. Coated steel systems also require expensive and maintenance oriented cathodic protection systems. Fiberclad piping systems gives the installers the weldability of steel and the end user the corrosion resistance of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (F.R.P.) - the best of both worlds.
