Shanghai Metal Corporation is a leading GRE pipes manufacturer and supplier.
Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) materials are an alternative to carbon steel pipes which are highly useful especially for corrosive, aggressive and normal environments. High strength fiberglass and amine cured epoxy resin processed under discontinuous filament winding process is the technology used in GRE pipes. These are manufactured by numerically controlled machines on a mandrel according to cross section filament winding process.
If you want to know more about our GRE pipes, please feel free to contact us, we will reply you within 24 hours.
GRE pipes are comparatively lightweight, easy to handle and install. The thermal conductivity of GRE pipes is low compared to steel and hence heat loss and insulation cost is minimized.GRE pipes also have a smooth internal surface enables high pipe flow capacity and reduces friction as well. GRE pipes which can be easily installed are maintenance free.
1. The lower pipe friction of GRE pipe ensures improved flow capacity. The maintenance required for GRE pipes are comparatively very less compared to carbon steel.
2. Due to its anti corrosive properties it is suitable for use in moist surroundings and even salty and swampy environment. It is a great advantage for offshore applications as has low weight.
3. SMC's GRE pipes can be safely installed above ground as it is UV resistant. Its assembling is fast and the cost is low as it is lightweight and the jointing techniques are simple.
