New Technologies, New Products, New Applications # 2001 Munich
Topics concerning pure or further developed materials take priority within the framework of this event. This lecture treats the combination of different materials and the possibilities of creating out of them the optimal construction for the respective, individually defined case of application. Chemical, mechanical and environmentally technological aspects will be considered and integrated in long-term solutions guaranteeing a long-lived service in contact with dangerous liquids. The development of new production processes also requires the appropriate handling of the used liquids especially with regard to the environmental protection. Thermoplastics compete directly with the so-called classical materials and offer primarily practical advantages to the user because of their excellent corrosion resistance. In the following, two areas of application will be treated in more detail : Liner Constructions and Double Containment Piping Systems.
