Latest Technology in Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe (RTP)

5 minute posters # 2014 Chicago

The reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP) is a new type of pipeline which has the unique advantages of flexibility,corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. The superior properties of RTP are now being cognized in China and they are being selected as the best option .Meanwhile, oil and gas industry in Chinese market had been setted the related standard and now RTP has been more and more applied as land and offshore oil and gas field water injection pipe as well as gathering tube, etc. It also has achieved some other successful application such as mine water, salt pan brine, military oil and submarine pipeline, and hot spring fields.

Mesohigh RTP extrusion technology usually has three-layer, which constructed by the inner layer (namely the core tube), winding reinforce layer and an outer protective layer. The inner layer usually adopt high density polyethylene HDPE, also can use PE-RT, PEX pipe or UHMWPE and so on. The reinforcement is usually a synthetic fibre (aramid, polyester fibre) or glass fiber. The outer protective layer is usually HDPE.

RTP has formed the scale in China, and has the independent innovation capability, we believe that RTP will win a great development in the Chinese market.
