Maverick Applied Science is an internationally recognized expert in the field of engineering and inspections of FRP solutions for corrosive applications.
Since 1999 we have built our reputation on personal service, advanced FRP technology and proven FRP engineering practices. While other engineering firms continue to shy away from fiberglass reinforced plastic solutions, we welcome the challenge and meet it through our comprehensive understanding of the behavior and performance of composite materials and fabricated components.
Our tag line "We Build Confidence in FRP" means exactly what it says. We are dedicated to proving that FRP piping, vessels and tanks are safe, reliable, cost effective solutions. Our engineers, designers, inspectors, pipe support staff and other personnel are among the most knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated available anywhere in the world.
