SKELMERSDALE, UK -- Trelleborg Offshore has launched Elastopipe FOR (Fire & Oil Resistant), an upgraded version of its synthetic rubber-based flexible piping system.

Elastopipe FOR incorporates a specially-developed polymer-based lining material that provides resistance against degradation by hydrocarbons. The product is fully qualified by Trelleborg R&D over more than two years with accelerated testing between -30°C and +100 °C (-22°F and +212° F).

"Elastopipe FOR avoids the replacement problems of corroding steel pipework, achieving a higher grade of safety, and much lower total installation and maintenance costs,” says Jan-Hugo Nilssen, sales and marketing manager for Trelleborg Offshore Norway. “It makes economic sense in both new or replacement installations.”
