The main applications which make up this water contact market are water meters, water pumps and valves/fittings.
Key glass Reinforced Thermoplastic (GRTP) parts for water meters are meter casings and flaps. GRTP materials are used for light weighting and part integration. They are also capable of resisting water pressure cycling without creep.
For water pumps, GRTP are used in impellers, pump casings and other internal pump parts mainly for part integration and hot water resistance.
