AbstractThis digest is the last in a series of three on plastic pipe. Reinforced thermosetting plastic-based pipes, because of their higher cost, constitute only a small percentage of the total plastic pipes in use. These pipes are used where higher strength or resistance to higher temperatures are required. The digest describes the general nature of reinforced thermosetting materials with respect to composition, fabrication, properties and applications, and discusses in detail two major types of pipe products in this class, glass-fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) and glass- fibre reinforced epoxy (GRE).
