Polycrete polymer concrete pipe is a composite material consisting of polyester resin, quartz sand, silicate aggregate and quartz filler. As portland cement performs poorly in an acidic environment, it is not used as a binding agent. Polycrete polymer concrete pipe uses a polyester resin to bond the kiln-dried silicate aggregate, thereby creating dense, corrosion-resistant matrix. For special industrial applications where added chemical resistance may be required, Polycrete can be produced using a vinyl ester resin.
Polymer concrete pipe is produced using a vertical casting process, very similar to concrete pipe. Exact amounts of the materials are pre-mixed, with the raw material quantities, mixing sequence and material feeds controlled by a computer. Then, the mixed material is loaded into vertical molds where vibratory compaction is used to ensure a dense, void-free composite structure.

Polycrete pipe is manufactured to meet the requirements of ASTM D6783 Standard Specification for Polymer Concrete Pipe. This specification was developed using the German DIN Standard 54815-1,2 Pipes Made of Filled Polyester Resin Molding Materials, as a guide. Like many of ASTM’s product standards, this specification for polymer concrete pipe adopted some of the performance requirements and test methods established for reinforced concrete sewer pipe (e.g. D-loads and three-edge bearing tests) as well as glass-reinforced plastic pipes (e.g. chemical resistance under load). Meyer Polymer concrete pipe is designed to meet all of the standards listed below.Download Product Guide
