Materials are needed for piping applications that have high strength and are resistant to corrosive chemicals. Polymer concrete pipes are one solution to this problem. These pipes are made by mixing a high strength, thermosetting resin with oven-dried aggregate to form a type of concrete. The resin within the mix provides for bonding the aggregate much like Portland Cement does in traditional concrete pipes.
