Reinforced thermoplastic pipe
RTP is a plastic pipe, initially developed by Akzo Nobel early 90s and by Tubes d'Aquitaine from France, who developed the first pipes reinforced with synthetic fiber to replace steel high pressure pipes.
Additional recommended knowledge
Technology and history
The idea of synthetic fiber reinforced pipe came from Akzo Nobel, where Bert Dalmolen initiated a project to develop such a pipe. He was later hired by Pipelife where a state of art production line was developed to produce RTP. Pipelife also developed a pipe reinforced with steel wire to achieve even higher pressure ratings of over 150Bar. Mr Chevrier (Tubes d'Aquitaine) also developed machinery that could produce such pipes, but was not successful in commercialising RTP.
