Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) and dual laminate piping systems, vessels, and tanks have broad application across numerous industries. We’ve served those mentioned here, but if you don’t see yours listed, please contact us. RPS Composites is always interested in expanding the use and appreciation of composite solutions in corrosive environments.

ENERGY TRANSITION

Our lightweight, corrosion-resistant composite equipment has been specified for EV battery recycling, AWE hydrogen production, carbon capture, battery metal processing, and rare earth oxides processing, to name a few. For a fuller description, see our blog post: Playing a Role in the Energy Transition.

HIGH PURITY

RPS dual laminate fluoropolymers, like MAXAR™ Red Seamless PVDF/FRP, are ideal for high purity environments in the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries (we use unpigmented stock in high purity). Our PVDF has gained FDA compliances, can be steamed and ozone cleaned, is resistant to microbial growth, and above all, limits the impurities that could be leached into acids and other solutions. 

STEEL PICKLING AND GALVANIZING

RPS Composites’ high-performance equipment excels in the corrosive atmosphere of a pickling line. This is a highly acidic environment that requires non-metallic vessels, piping, and venting equipment to contain acid, waste, and vapor. The hotter the process, the more likely that FRP will out-perform thermoplastics alone. Electrogalvanizing is another highly corrosive environment due to the acid-zinc solution, and cleaning and rinsing baths, where non-metallic vessels, piping, and venting equipment are used. Most of our metals industry expertise is in our Ohio facility, where several key employees have direct experience in the steel industry.
