FIBREGLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC PIPE


PRODUCT LINE

DESCRIPTION
General
Future Pipe Industries FiberstrongTM Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester (FRP)
pipe and joints are a corrosion resistant underground piping system
constructed for use in both gravity and pressure applications. They consist of
a thermosetting chemical resistant polyester resin, fiberglass reinforcements
and silica sand. Pipes are available in gravity (G), 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250
psig pressure classes. Intermediate pressure classes are available. The
standard jointing system is a double socket FRP coupling joint with two Reka
rubber gaskets. Pipe stiffness (PS) can be 18, 36, 46 and 72 psi. Nominal
pipe diameters (DN) are from 14 through 158.

Construction
Fiberstrong FRP pipe is a filament wound, corrosion resistant composite
laminate manufactured from thermosetting polyester resin, fiberglass
filament windings, fiberglass chopped roving, and finely graded pure silica
sand. The pipe consists of a resin-rich reinforced liner, structural walls, a
stiffness core and a resin rich exterior layer. Chemical resistant C glass
mat or veil is used in all surface reinforcements.

USE AND APPLICATION


Fiberstrong FRP pipe is suitable and approved for use in potable water systems. It
is also suitable for raw water, seawater and corrosive environments including
sanitary sewage and many industrial effluents with a temperature range of -40F to
+95F. Some corrosive industrial effluents may require use of Vinyl Ester resins.
Consult FPI for recommendations on resin choices for use in transporting corrosive
industrial effluents. Gravity sewer pipe meet the long term Chemical requirements
(HSO resistance) of ASTM D 3262 when tested in accordance to ASTM D 3681.

Pressure and Loading Limitations


FRP pipes manufactured per this specification will have the following pressure
capabilities (in psig) regardless of pipe stiffness for continuous service
temperatures up to 95F. Pressure classes are based on long term HDB
testing in accordance with ASTM D 2992 procedure B. Consult FPI on
availability of intermediate pressure classes.

Maximum allowable cover depth varies with the type of installation and native
soil conditions. The above table is based on native soils having an SPT blow
count (N) of at least 4.
Refer to the current Future Pipe Industries
Fiberstrong Underground FRP Pipe Handling & Installation Manual
for details.

** Lightly tamped sand backfill should not be used where the groundwater
table is higher than the trench bottom.

*** Minimum cover restrictions may be reduced with special installations such as

concrete encasement, concrete protection cover slabs, casings, or other


provisions to carry the surface load. FRP pipe require a minimum cover equal
to 80% of the pipe diameter of compacted granular fill to prevent flotation in
areas with a high ground water table.

Blow counts shall be determined as per ASTM D 1586 Standard Method for
Penetration Test and Split-barrel sampling of Soils (SPT).
Very soft
cohesive soils and very loose granular soils with an SPT count (N) of less
than 2 will require special installations for stability (e.g. permanent
sheeting, and/or geo-textile membrane trench lining and/or cementstabilized backfill). A soil specialist should be consulted.

JOINTS
Fiberstrong pipes and fittings are joined using a filament wound double bell
Reka Coupling. The sealing of this FRP joint is achieved by the compression of
two Reka rubber gaskets (typically EPDM) when the joint is assembled. The joint
meets the rigorous requirements of ASTM D 4161. Restrained versions are
available. Available in all diameters up to 158.

Alternative Jointing Systems


Pipe sections may be laminated together utilizing an external (and
internal) lay-up "butt-wrap" consisting of layers of fiberglass mat and
woven roving impregnated with polyester resin. The minimum
strength of the lay-up is equal to the minimum pipe wall strength.
Mechanical step couplings as manufactured by StraubTM, TeekayTM,
Viking-JohnsonTM or approved equivalent may be used for joining to
different pipe materials such as cast iron or steel pipe. Refer to
section 5.4 for pipe O.D's. Fiberstrong Pipe in sizes 16 through 64
are compatible with standard AWWA ductile iron fittings.
Flanges are filament wound or contact molded and are drilled to
standard ANSI B16.1, 125 psig flange dimensions. Flanges can be
drilled to other standards (AWWA C207, ISO, BS etc...)

Pipe may also be supplied with bell and spigot type joints with
one elastomeric EPDM rubber gasket for sealing in sizes below
16. Consult FPI on sizes available.

Fittings
FPI manufactures a full range of fittings such as elbows, tees, reducers,
Wyes, flanges are manufactured entirely from pipe sections laminated
together with Fiberglass reinforcements and resin or contact molded.
No metal parts are used in the manufacture of FPIs fittings. Fittings are
available with spigot ends, flanged ends or with plain ends.

REMEDIAL WORK
Repairs of pipe wall will not exceed 5% of the interior surface and 5% of
the exterior surface.
The number of repairs will not exceed an average of 1 per 3 Ft length of
pipe in each surface.
Pipe sections may contain factory lay-up joints which will not be considered
as repairs.

MARKING AND IDENTIFICATION


Each pipe section and coupling shall be marked with the following
information:
1.
2.
3.
4.

"FPI, pipe pressure class (PN) and stiffness (SN).


Manufacturing Number
Nominal diameter (ND) in inches, and length (L) in feet.
Applicable specification.

PACKAGING
Pipe shall be suitably cradled, wedged or braced to prevent damage during
shipment per FPI packaging specification.
Rubber ring gaskets, and joint lubricant (if purchased from FPI) will be
shipped in suitable containers or bags.

HANDLING AND STORAGE REQUIREMENTS


Do not stack pipe for storage without prior written approval from Future
Pipe Industries. FRP Reka couplings should be stored flat.
When storing the pipe directly on the ground, make sure that the ground is
loose sand, level and free of potentially damaging debris or stones.
Pipe sections 40 feet or less in length may be lifted using one support point.
Any pipe section may be lifted using two support points separated by a third
of that of the section length and located equidistant from the pipe section
center.
For lifting pipe, use pliable straps or rope. Do not use steel cables or chains
unless sufficient padding is used to protect the pipe surface.
Store rubber gaskets in their original containers (bags) in a cool, dry area
shaded from sunlight.

Do not drop or impact the pipe, particularly at pipe ends.


Caution: Workers should wear gloves when handling pipe to protect
hands from the rough pipe surfaces.
Additional handling instructions shall be according to the
Fiberstrong FRP Pipe Handling & Installation Manual for
underground Pipe Systems.

CUSTOMER INSPECTION
The customer is responsible for inspection of all deliveries for shipping
damage at the time of taking delivery and must note any damage or
shortage on the delivery note at that time.
The customer is responsible for visually inspecting the pipe upon
delivery for adherence to the product standard set forth therein.

INSTALLATION
Installation specifications have been developed to ensure that pipe will
perform as designed, and therefore, must be adhered to during
installation.
The Contractor shall ensure that the pipe is being
installed according the Fiberstrong FRP Pipe Handling &
Installation Manual for underground Pipe Systems.
Always use a vegetable based joint lubricant. As with all piping
systems, unbalanced thrust forces will be present at changes of
direction or cross-sections such as in elbows, reducers, tees, wyes or
bulk heads. These forces must be restrained for system stabilization.
Adequate restraint can be achieved through concrete thrust blocks or
restrained joints.
Pipe deflection should be measured immediately after completing
backfilling of the trenches.
