Polymer concrete consists of a mixture of mineral, quartzite fillers in the hardly porous grading curve range to DIN 1045 [DIN1045:1988] and reaction resin on the basis of unsaturated polyester resins with properties to DIN 16946 Part 2 Table 3 [DIN16946:1989].
The material properties are made up as follows:
- Compressive stress: 100 N/mm2 (and higher)
- Tensile bending stress: 13 N/mm2
- E- Modulus: 18.000 N/mm2
- Density: 23 kN/m3
- Long. compressive stress: 80 N/mm2 (and higher)
- Oscillation width: 6 N/mm2
- Wall roughness:
Qatar German Pipe Company testing facilities, located inside the factory, are staffed with over 6 experienced Engineers, and Technicians working on product, machinery, and process design and improvements.
Over 500 tests are conducted annually addressing product long-term testing including Hydrostatic Design Basis (HDB), Ring Bending, Strain Corrosion, Creep, UEWS (ultimate Elastic Wall Stress), Survival Testing, and Abrasion and Impact resistance. These tests are executed using highly specialized automated in-house testing equipment with 24/7 data logging system to ensure accuracy in according with international standards including ISO, ASTM, BS, API and many others. Our long-term testing equipment has over 80 pressure points for simultaneous sample testing with a capability of up to 700 bars and 150°C.
