Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) pipes (also known as fiberglass reinforced polymer) have been in use worldwide for more than sixty years. FARATEC® GRP pipes have been in production since 1992 and exported to countries in Asia, Africa and Europe estalishing itself as a trusted brand in water and sewarge indusries. FARATEC® brand GRP pipe designs undergo vigourous long term and short term tests ensuring a minimum service life of 50 years. All of the production pipes are hydro and pressure tested, and all production batches undergo a battery of short term tests prior to release for shipping. We pride ourselves in having one of the most stringent quality control processes in the industry ensuring all pipes meet their specified performance specfications.

Our pipe designs have been in use in a variety of applications, including:

  • Potable water transport
  • Municipal sewage disposal and raw water supply
  • Desalination
  • Sea water outfalls and intakes
  • Cooling network systems and geothermal lines,
  • Fire mains,
  • Chemical processing and effluent systems,
  • Oil and petrochemical industries,
  • Slurry lines,
  • Ducting and conduits,
  • Power plants,
  • Rehabilitation and relining of old steel or concrete pipes,
  • Pipe jacking,
  • Cargo and ballast lines for tankers,
  • Micro-tunneling

FARATEC® GRP pipes have been used in varied conditions including areas of high soil erosion, extremly harsh environmental conditions, and highly earthquake prone areas without any leakage or other pipe damage. FARATEC® GRP pipes have superior performance compared to other piping material. They install faster, repair easier and generally require less maintenance.
