Conley Composites has developed break-through proprietary technology in the manufacture of vinyl ester fiberglass reinforced thermoset we call "Continuous Cast Pipe" that produces a machine-made resin rich pipe to exact inside and outside diameter dimensions continuously. The process not only results in an extremely consistent product but also allows for pipe lengths up to 50ft.
Conley Endurance™ "Continuous Cast Pipe" manufacturing strategically places continuous glass reinforcement directly in the axis of stress loading, axial and hoop, providing outstanding strength in each axis.
The machine-positioned directional glass placement yields much greater stiffness offering higher axial tensile and beam bending capabilites for greater unsupported span situations and lower thermal expansion/contraction, while maintaining an excellent pressure safety factor for hoop strength.
Endurance™ pipe also incorporates a 10 mil resin rich Nexus external corrosion barrier on the O.D. which provides an excellent barrier to environment and airborne corrosives. Endurance™ pipe also contains a UV inhibitor to aid against ultraviolet radiation from sunlight.
Endurance™ internal corrosion barrier consists of up to 11 (on Endurance 100) layers of Nexus veil, each saturated with vinyl ester resin. The resin rich Nexus veil reinforcement provides increased strength and ductility that isn't easily cracked or fractured like "Fragile, non reinforced pure resin" is known to do with competitor's pipe. Endurance™ Pipe has been proven to provide over 2 times the impact resistance over competitor pipes as well.
Endurance™ pipe is rated to 300 psi from -40 °F to 200 °F. Conley fittings also maintain the same pressure / temperature rating as Endurance™ pipe.
