Please refer to the "Service Restrictions" shown below to determine if Unit Certification is required for this product. This is to certify that, pursuant to the Rules of American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), on 24/AUG/2008 the manufacturer of the below listed product held a valid Manufacturing Assessment (MA) and a valid Product Design Assessment (PDA) for the below listed product, entitling the product to type approval. The validity of the Manufacturing Assessment is dependent on satisfactory audits as required by the Rules. The Product Design Assessment is valid only for products intended for use on ABS classed vessels, MODUs or facilities which are in existence or under contract for construction on the date of the ABS Rules used to evaluate the Product. For Date of ABS Rules used for evaluation; Please refer to the ABS Rules below. ABS makes no representations regarding type approval of the Product for use on vessels, MODUs or facilities built after the date of the ABS Rules used for evaluation. Due to wide variety of specifications used in the products ABS has evaluated for Type Approval, it is part of our contract that; whether the standard is an ABS Rule or a non-ABS Rule, the Client has full responsibility for continued compliance with the standard.

SPECIALTY PLASTICS, INC. Model Name(s): FIBERBOND Series 20FR16, 20FR16-C. Duplicated PDA issued to PACIFIC ADVANCE COMPOSITES SDN BHD and DIALOG PLANT SERVICES SDN
Presented to: SPECIALTY PLASTICS, INC. P.O. BOX 77011 15915 PERKINS ROAD BATON ROUGE LA 708797011 United States Intended Service: Seawater, freshwater, & sanitary/drain systems for marine and offshore installations per IMO A.753(18) Level 0 or Level 3. Fire Mains for offshore installations per USCG PFM1-98. A glass reinforced product, available in pipe, fittings and joints utilizing a premium grade fire retardant epoxy vinyl resin matrix and a 20-mil (0.50mm) liner. 20FR16-C also includes an electrically conductive exterior. 1" - 24" 232 psig (16 barg), 30" - 36" 150 psig (10.3 barg), 42" - 48" 100 psig (6.9 barg), all sizes up to 185 deg. F (85 deg. C). See attached "pdf" Mechanical Specification Unit Certification is required for this product (each length of pipe is to be hydrostatically tested in accordance with 4-6-3/9 of the Rules, at the manufacturer's production facility). 20FR16 may not be used where electrical conductivity is required. 20FR16-C may be used where electrial conductivity is required. 20FR16-C has an external electrical resistance of no more than 105 ohms per meter. Piping must be connected to ground at enough points throughout the sytem to maintain a resistance of no more than 106 ohms to ground. When

used in hazardous areas, the fluid handled by the piping system must have an electrical conductivity >1,000 pico siemens per meter (pS/m) (e.g. seawater, freshwater, crude oil) and the fluid must be connected to ground at no less than one point in the system with a resistance of no greater than 106 ohms to ground. The resistance to earth (ground) from any point in the system is not to exceed 106 ohms. The resistance is to be checked in the presence of the Surveyor. Comments: Non standard sizes and sizes larger than listed above require case by case approval. 20FR16 material has passed ASTM D635 flame spread test, in lieu of IMO specified test, requiring Administration approval for acceptance for use in other than open deck, within tanks, cofferdams, void spaces, pipe tunnels and ducts locations. In accordance with USCG PMF1-98, Table 5.1.2 "Qualification of piping Systems of sizes different from those tested", (20FR16, 20FR16C of sizes 2" , 6" and 12" pipe, fittings, and joints were tested to level 3) only piping of sizes 2" through 32" may be used in fire main piping which must also comply with the conditions in USCG PFM1-98 "Guidlines on the fire endurance requirements for plastic pipe for use on mobile offshore drilling units and floating production platforms" - "Section 3, Fire Main". This Product Design Assessment (PDA) is valid only for products intended for use on ABS classed vessels, MODUs or facilities which are in existence or under contract for construction on the date of the ABS Rules used to evaluate the Product. This Design Assessment Certificate number 04-HS242527A/5-PDA, dated 22/Apr/2005 will expire on 21/Apr/2010 or at an earlier date should there be alterations to the product's design or changes to the referenced ABS Rules and other specifications, which affect the product. Product use on or after 1 January 2006, will be subject to compliance with the ABS Rules or specifications in effect when the vessel, MODU or facility is contracted. The product's acceptability on board ABS-classed vessels or facilities is defined in the service restrictions of this certificate. 2005 Steel Vessel Rules 1-1-4/7.7, 4-6-3; 2001 MODU Rules 4-2-2/7; 2000 Guide for Facilities on Offshore Installations Appendix 1 ASTM F1173-01 Type I, Resin 2, Class B, Rating Method 1 and 4, Fire Endurance S, Fire Type IF, Integrity B, Duration 30.

ABS has used due diligence in the preparation of this certificate and it represents the information on the product in the ABS Records as of the date and time the certificate was printed. Type Approval requires Drawing Assessment, Prototype Testing and assessment of the manufacturer's quality assurance and quality control arrangements. Limited circumstances may allow only Prototype Testing to satisfy Type Approval. The approvals of Drawings and Products remain valid as long as the ABS Rule, to which they were assessed, remains valid. ABS cautions manufacturers to review and maintain compliance with all other specifications to which the product may have been assessed. Further, unless it is specifically indicated in the description of the product; Type Approval does not necessarily waive witnessed inspection or survey procedures (where otherwise required) for products to be used in a vessel, MODU or facility intended to be ABS classed or that is presently in class with ABS. Questions regarding the validity of ABS Rules or the need for supplemental testing or inspection of such products should, in all cases, be addressed to ABS.
