Under new operational management, Industrial Fiberglass Specialties Inc. (IFS) has launched a multi-tiered strategy that includes expanding its’ line of filament wound, corrosion resistant fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) products.
IFS products are capable of meeting severe duty requirements, a feature that is attractive to the chemical, oil and gas, power, and mining markets. Industrial piping, fittings, and products that can be tailored to customer specifications comprise the company’s core line.
“We have 40 years of experience supplying FRP piping and fittings,” says IFS President Brian Mitsch. “Our goal is to help customers transition into the future by using our skill sets to tackle a wider range of problems whether it’s vents for a potable water tank farm, pipe and fittings for a power plant, or a mold for a specialised industrial product.”
Corrosion resistant methacrylate-modified epoxy FRP pipe, duct and fittings can be engineered for a range of uses including chemical service environment applications. It costs approximately 35% less than epoxy pipe. Methacrylate-modified epoxy products also offer high-performance alternatives to costly alloys and specialty metals for projects that dictate fire retardant and explosion resistant requirements.
Filament wound methacrylate-modified epoxy FRP pipe and duct products are available in sizes ranging from 3/8 in. to 168 in. One of just a handful of manufacturers able to offer pipe in these size ranges, IFS builds its products to ASTM standards for iron pipe outside diameters (OD) and chemical process pipe inside diameters (ID).
IFS is a custom manufacturer of fiberglass reinforced plastic products in a wide range of sizes for structurally demanding applications and corrosive environments. With 40 years of fabrication and engineering expertise, IFS combines specialised resins knowledge, innovative design and materials; manufacturing technology and restoration services to support a diverse product lineup that includes filament wound FRP industrial piping, engineered FRP pipe fittings, custom engineered pipe systems and chemical tanks.
