BONDSTRAND GLASSFIBER REINFORCED BONDSTRAN EPOXY (GRE) (GRE) PIPE SYSTEMS ®
The many advantages of Ameron Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipe systems Durable and corrosion resistant Ameron GRE piping is inert to internal corrosion from chemicals, crude oil, residues, injection water and bacteria. Similarly it resists exterior corrosion even in aggressive environments. Cathodic protection is not required. Y R T S U D NI
Lightweight – easy to install GRE pipe systems, being just a quarter to an eighth the weight of comparable steel pipe, are easy to install without the need of heavy equipment. S A
Reduced costs G D
The installation cost of GRE pipe systems are typically 80% of the costs of carbon steel. The corrosion resistance and resistance to UV light reduce the maintenance costs for both aboveground and buried pipelines. The smooth internal surface reduces the head loss resulting in lower pump energy consumption. N A IL O
Ameron Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipe systems – the cost effective alternative Ameron Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipe systems represent the costeffective alternative to corrosion-prone metallic piping and non-reinforced thermoplastics. Reduced installation and maintenance costs, longer service life and the ease of relocation are just a few of the advantages of the glassfiber piping technology.

Bondstrand® is corrosion and chemical resistant*. It is inert to bacterial growth and does not deteriorat e with age, maintaining excellent flow characteristics during the lifetime of the system. syste m. The low absolute roughness of the inner surface and the large cross-sectional area result in a significantly lower pressure drop than for example same size Schedule 40 carbon steel. The epoxy resin/ fiberglass matrix never requires cathodic protection against corrosive soil conditions and stray current electrolysis.

IT CAN TAKE THE PRESSURE Bondstrand® and Centron® pipe systems are cost-effective solutions for high-pressure pipeline systems for oil and gas services such as gathering lines, subsea flow lines and water injection lines. Bondstrand ® SSL
With a new revolutionary technology of encapsulated high-tensile steel in a GRE jacket, Bondstrand® SSL enables operating pressures up to almost 400 bar (5750 PSI), far higher than conventional non-metallic materials. Ideal for the most demanding applications in corrosive environments including carrying crude oil, salt and sour water. Bondstrand ® 3400 and Centron®
The technically advanced filament wound construction of Bondstrand ® 3400 and Centron® SP/SPH pipes allows for tubing and casing with deep hole capabilities over 3 km (10.000 ft.) and operating pressures of up to 245 bar (3500 PSI). ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■
Fast, reliable make-up, no adhesive required Flow characteristics 1.5 times better than comparable steel Low solids build-up and low pressure drop Excellent resistance to abrasion and wear Exceptional corrosion resistance Exceptional pressure and axial load capabilities
IT CAN TAKE THE HEAT Epoxy pipe Bondstrand can be used for systems which are normally water filled without additional passive fire protection. Fire exposure will cause the outer surface of the pipe to char, but the inner piping is able to perform, stabilized by the water. Epoxy pipe with intumescent coating For dry services where epoxy pipe is preferred, an outer layer of passive fire protection can be used. Intumescent coatings can be applied in the fie ld (unreinforced) or in the factory (reinforced or unreinforced) to provide the fire endurance needed. The coating also provides very high resistance to damage and may be considered for areas where the piping is vulnerable to impact. Flame-retardant Flame-Retardant means the ability to retard burning and extinguish the flame once the flame source is removed. Bonstrand pipe meets rigorous requirements with respect to flame spread and fire endurance.
