    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes requirements for the materials, properties, design calculations, manufacture, inspection and testing of reinforced plastics pipes, fittings and joints consisting of thermosetting resin systems with glass fibre reinforcement (GRP) for process plants. Constructions both with and without a lining of thermoplastics are included. Shows information to be supplied for designs for pipes and fittings. Gives temperature, pressure and non-taint limitations and exclusions.
