Standards and Codes

ISO14692 committee

DRG is a founding member of the ISO14692 committee, the DNV Committee for certification of fiberglass craftsmanship and is (co-)author of many technical papers and code contributions. The objective of ISO 14692 is to provide the petroleum and natural gas industry, as well as the supporting engineering and manufacturing industry, with mutually agreed specifications and recommended practices for the purchase, qualification, manufacturing, design, handling, storage, installation, commissioning and operation of GRP piping systems.

The last decades have seen a large growth in the use of Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping. The most common materials for FRP piping are Glass Reinforced Poly/Vinyl-ester resin (GRP/V) and Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) resin. Their uses differ per production process and product size. Generally GRE piping allows for higher operating temperatures than GRP/V piping.

DRG is often consulted by many of the major fiberglass suppliers as an independent consultant for our practical approach to fiberglass engineering solutions.
