U.S. Composite Pipe, Inc. is a full line custom shop. Using our corrosion resistant polymer concrete, we can pour varies shapes and products to meet the custom design needs of our customers. Whether we are using our metal forms or building special wood forms, we can accommodate the ever changing needs of today’s design engineers. As long as we can ship it, we can build it.
Advantages of USCP custom structures:
• Corrosion resistant material, requires no coating or lining
• Can be built to the size and shape required
• Same unit weight as Portland cement concrete allows it to be designed to counter the affects of buoyancy when required
• Steel reinforced

16′ Diameter Steel Reinforced Polymer Concrete Wet Well
USCP has provided multiple 16’ diameter wet wells to projects requiring a large capacity round structure. These sections are 17.5’ wide and can weigh up to 20 tons each. This diameter structure is also used in tunnel shaft applications.
Steel vs FRP Reinforcement
Corrosion of steel rebar: There has been some attention given to the use of steel reinforcement in the polymer concrete products. Sadly, the attention has been an attempt to portray our design philosophy in a negative fashion. These attempts are an effort to try and...
Rubber Gasket Joints
USCP utilizes a rubber gasket on all of our round structures. The gasket and joint are designed to meet the requirements of ASTM C443 in order to provide a long term watertight joint. The profile shape of our joint is designed as the same profile used by standard...
Is Higher Compression Strength Better
How important is the compressive strength of polymer concrete? Polymer concrete is known for having robust material properties. Both compressive and tensile properties of polymer concrete will typically exceed those of a standard Portland cement concrete. Along with...
