Lightweight / high strength
m-pipe® has a strength of up to 1500 Mpa and a strain to failure in excess of 2%, this exceptional performance compared with steel and titanium enables m-pipe® to solve many of the problems associated with high pressure and deep water.
As a rule of thumb, an m-pipe® riser or jumper designed to match the pressure performance of conventional steel or flexible pipe would be 1/10th the weight.
