PipeStrand® S1000

Maximize Performance, Minimize Cost

PipeStrand® S1000, made for fabricators that want to reduce material cost, while increasing product performance. Designed to provide excellent hydrostatic bases, fight corrosion, increase efficiency and service life in the low-pressure filament-wound pipe, tank and vessel markets


Performance Attributes

  • Outstanding Mechanical Properties

    Excellent shear and hydrostatic properties in all major resin systems, provide maximum part strength, long service life and hydrostatic design basis.

  • Reduce Cost

    Fast, uniform strand wet-out in all major resin systems, results in optimized part production speed and increased productivity, reducing manufacturing costs.

  • Multi Resin Compatibility

    Excellent glass/resin bonding in polyester, vinyl ester, polyurethane, acrylic, and epoxy resins, providing the processor maximum flexibility with one input glass. This reduces inventory and eliminates the need for costly downtime and labor during product change overs.

  • Excellent Processing

    Smooth run-out combined with low fuzz properties, result in smoother parts and less downtime for clean-up, enabling higher efficiencies and lower manufacturing costs.

  • Corrosion Resistant

    Excellent corrosion resistance with Advantex® Glass compared to standard E-glass: providing longer service life in applications facing corrosion.

  • Applications

    PipeStrand® S1000 roving is specifically designed to match the unique needs of the low-pressure filament winding market. Compatible with polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy and polyurethane resins, it serves a variety of applications: water distribution (water desalination, water treatment, sewage), industrial (petrochemical), transportation (marine), infrastructure (light poles) and power/energy (LPG). PipeStrand® S1000 products can meet pipe user requirements for high mechanical properties, durability, corrosion resistance, and low weight.

Packaging (Standard Reference)

Rovings are available in a single-end internal-pull package. Pallets are stretch wrapped for load stability. All doffs are wrapped with Tack-PakTM or shrinkable film for protection during transport. More information is available in the Customer Acceptance Standards.


Each individual package is labeled with information including: product name, tex/yield, producing plant, and production date.


It is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. The product should be stored in the workshop in its original packaging, 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during the cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water.

Regional Availability

PipeStrand S1000 is available in North America, Europe and India.
