The Worlds Most Researched FRP Products

What sets PipeMedic™ products apart from the rest of the industry is their rare proprietary compositions engineered for unprecedented strength at the molecular level. Products developed by Dr. Mo Ehsani (Professor Emeritus of Civil/Structural Engineering at the University of Arizona) underwent decades of extensive research and development, along with years of field installations to physically test, improve, and perfect the products which are readily available! PipeMedic™ products are engineered to capitalize on their unique capabilities wich offer all unforeseen projects unmatchable services in comparison to any other products or companies available on the market today. PipeMedic™ laminates, for example, with a tensile strength of over 160,000 psi are nearly four times stronger than steel.

One of the most common applications of StifPipe® is for cases where the loads on the pipe are significantly produced by gravity (along with the weight of soil and traffic). The most applicable testing procedure for such pipes is provided in ASTM D2412 – (Standard Test Method for Determination of External Loading Characteristics of Plastic Pipe by Parallel-Plate Loading). Similar tests on StifPipe® were carried out at the laboratories of the Department of Mining and Geological Engineering, at the University of Arizona, Tucson.

The application of SuperLaminate™ for the gas industry has been extensively tested by the Gas Technology Institute (GTI). In these various tests, it has been shown that SuperLaminate™ can be used as a liner to create a pipe where a section of a pipe as long as 24 inches (610 mm) is missing. In these tests, the SuperLaminate™ liner was subjected to a pressure of 250 psi and there was no signs of stress. In addition, the unwavered laminate proved to take on 3x more pressure without any signs of stress or failure. PipeMedic™ – SuperLaminate™ may have even withstood significantly higher pressures.

PipeMedic™ laminates (with a tensile strength of over 160,000 psi) are nearly four times stronger than steel. The StifPipe™ honeycomb construction allows us to construct pipes that are 3-4 times stronger than pipes that are made solely with carbon fabric. We welcome you to examine some of the test results presented below so you can appreciate the unique characteristics of our innovative products.!
