Extra Co produces GRP (GP or ISO resin), GRV (Vinyl Ester resin), and GRE (Epoxy resin) pipes based on the specifications required for their use. The discontinuous FRPRTRP pipe manufacturing process (also known as dual-helical filament winding process) involves winding the resin soaked fiber onto a fixed position rotating mandrel of the required diameter (up to 4m). The pipe is then left to cure and harden before it is extracted from the mandrel. This manufacturing process limits the length of the pipe to the length of the mandrel (usually 9m or 6m), and is a slower process than the continuous manufacturing process. On the other hand, this manufacturing process allows for both radial as well as helical winding of the glass fibers onto the pipe which allows for achieving different tensile and compressive strength characteristics suitable for addressing different applications of varying pressure thresholds.
