    Abstract

    Glassfiber Reinforced Plastic (GRP) pipes were first introduced into the Middle East in the mid 1970's. High temperatures prevail, high and saline groundwater tables exist in coastal areas, and corrosive soils abound making GRP the ideal pipe material for water and sewer lines, cooling systems for power and desalination plants, storm-water networks, and other applications.
