Production Process

Novafast pipes are made by high-strength continuous fibreglass filament winding process, with exclusively self-retained manufacturing techniques. Our self-developed internal heating curing technique and computer controlled winding allows quality control during the whole course of production. We are always pursuing new techniques to improve our products, with continuous innovation as a focus to providing the best solutions for the market.

Quality Control

Selection and Inspection of raw material

Before selecting raw materials, we make an overall evaluation for production, checking through our quality control systems.

All material inspection standards are established according to the pipe quality requirements and each item is examined and inspection procedures are performed accordingly.

Pipe Winding

by Microcomputer Automatic Control

Pipe Curing

by PLC Automatic Control

Production Inspection

100% Product Appearance Inspection, 100% Hydrostatic Pressure Test, TG Test, Short-Time Hydraulic Failure Pressure Test, Thread Parametric Test, Certificate of Analysis and others.
