Performance Testing of GRP Pipe Systems


Testing and Processing

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1979 Brigthon


A description is given of the standard practice performance testing of GRP pipes and materials.

In GRP systems, as in other major construction materials, in most cases the project specification includes a performance test. The performance tests include a number of destructive tests.

These tests have to prove that the demands of the project specification will be met. The tests are often specified in the purchase order(s) and are mostly witnessed by an inspector of an independent laboratory or institution, to ensure the procedures are followed in the right way and in the right sequence.

In most cases the performance tests have to be realised before production is started.
