Whether it be for seawater, wastewater or potable, the water industry employs the use of FRP transport, storage, and odour control products throughout their processes. Using composite materials presents clients with a system which protects the purity of the liquid while sustaining the integrity of the assets of the process. The growing industry is driven by a growing population and new and rural developments being established. 

Composites are resistant to corrosion, UV and chemicals but provide a lightweight, low cost, low maintenance solution for various applications. These factors make it practical for their use in sewer treatment, desalination and wastewater plants. Many water management businesses across Australia have trusted our engineering team to design, test and inspect their assets.
