Today’s advanced chemicals create many corrosion and abrasion challenges, often involving the materials used in process piping and equipment construction.

The challenges of these hazards quickly lead engineers away from traditional materials, such as carbon steel and stainless steel. Advanced alloys are one option, albeit a very expensive one. In comparison, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) is a reliable and budget friendly option. Used in the chemical processing industry for over a half century, FRP has not only gained acceptance, but preference in many cases.

Chemical processors have been relying on Maverick Applied Science for our expertise in FRP processing solutions since 1999.

Four steps to maximizing the benefits and service life of FRP and dual laminates:

  1. Specify the best materials of construction
  2. Detailed engineering and design validation
  3. Demand the best fabrication practices
  4. Document the entire process
