Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) pipe consists of reinforcement fabric layers saturated with a thermosetting resin, then cured in a casting machine.

Common uses include fume scrubbers, hood and ventwork, process piping, oil field gathering lines to sewer and water mains in the municipal and industrial markets.
