Strohm and Evonik’s Carbon Fiber PA12 for Thermoplastic Composite Pipe Receives DNV Certification for Hydrocarbons Transport January 17 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, January 17, 2022

Strohm and Evonik have been awarded the full certification from DNV, attesting that the unidirectional Carbon Fiber PA12 tape “VESTAPE PA12-CF” (PA12) used for Strohm’s Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) is fit to use for dynamic sweet and sour hydrocarbons, water, and gas injection applications according to DNV-ST-F119. PA12 is a fully non-metallic, corrosion-resistant solution. Due to the use of carbon fibers, it is exceptionally resistant to fatigue-based failures, marking it a perfect choice for any dynamic application from jumpers to flowlines and risers, including sweet and sour hydrocarbon, water, and gas service.

The two companies, in partnership with the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR), have led the way in the development, qualification and supply of PA12 for TCP applications following an intensive investment and testing program over the past five years.
