Application

This kind of PE UD tapes is especially suitable for high strength pipes in oil and gas industry. Pipes coated with continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites are called reinforced thermoplastic pipes (RTP).  They are much stronger than metal or plastic pipes made of traditional materials.
