For industrial applications where corrosion resistance is a must, high-performance composite materials are quickly becoming an industry standard alongside stainless steel and nickel alloys. Composite products excel in the oil and gas, marine, petrochemical, energy, and manufacturing industries.

Types of Composite Materials

Composites are the result of combining two or more materials to create an improved version. For example, blending thermoplastics with glass and carbon fibers provides greater strength.

At Andronaco, we work with a wide variety of cutting-edge composites:

  • 300: Versatile vinyl ester and graphite composite with excellent seawater corrosion properties and lightweight profile
  • 310: Glass-fiber reinforced vinyl ester composite for greater pressure resistance, impact resistance, heat resistance, and overall strength
  • 410: Thermoplastic resin and glass fiber composite that offers outstanding resistance to corrosive acids and bases and significant tensile strength
  • 500XP: Epoxy resin and carbon fiber composite known for outstanding fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance, and dimensional stability for challenging applications
  • 610XP: Heavy-duty epoxy resin with glass fibers for enhanced mechanical resistance, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance
  • 610FR: Fire-resistant version of 610 composite for operations that require thermal stability

High-performance composites can resist over 1,000 chemicals and liquids, including phosphoric and muriatic acids, hydrocarbon byproducts, and high-velocity seawater. Our Nil-Cor® brand offers a diverse selection of corrosion-resistant resin systems reinforced with fibers. These systems are engineered to withstand the effects of over 1000 chemicals and various chemical combinations.

Common Industrial Applications for Composites

Composites deliver long-lasting performance for valves, diaphragm pumps, pipe fittings, stem seals, blowout preventers, and many other flow systems. Oil rigs, gas pipelines, hydroelectric generators, and food processing companies benefit from these next-gen materials.

The Benefits of High-Performance Composite Valves

Manufacturers and industrial businesses need dependable, flexible solutions for corrosion resistance. Nil-Cor provides an assortment of composite systems customized to suit specific applications. We can also help our customers choose the right type of composite to meet operational specifications.  View our chemical resistance guide to learn more.
