Advanced Structural Composite Housing
Durcor® is the world’s first composite pipe designed exclusively to support free-standing PTFE fluoropolymer liners. Through a proprietary process, Durcor® pipe is manufactured with glass fiber bundles, pressure saturated with a highly chemical resistant formulation of premium vinyl ester resin to provide maximum exterior protection. The fiberglass bundles are oriented in strict axial and hoop routes which provide outstanding impact, stiffness and pressure capabilities. Durcor® is dimensionally equivalent to schedule 40 steel pipe and can be essentially treated the same. Durcor® also has excellent insulating properties and can often eliminate the need for tracing and/or reduced thickness of insulation required to maintain a given temperature.
Durcor® Piping System is NOT a Dual Laminate
Durcor® piping system should not be confused with dual laminate. Unlike dual laminate fittings & pipe, Durcor® has excellent dimensional control and tolerance as well as outstanding surface quality. Durcor® utilizes thick, seamless PTFE liners that don’t require any chemical or mechanical bonding to composite that could lead to delamination failure. Dual laminate liners typically are made from sheet that are rolled and welded to form geometrical shapes.
Strong, Light Weight, Zero Corrosion.
Durcor®’s thick wall PTFE liner provides unmatched internal chemical resistance while its revolutionary vinyl ester fiberglass housing provides outstanding exterior corrosion protection, high impact resistance and excellent span and burst capabilities. The construction of Durcor® offers the ultimate in physical properties and corrosion resistance and carries the industry’s first (5) year “Bumper-To-Bumper” warranty against environmental corrosion.
