Composite pipes were introduced in 1948. They were initially used in the oil industry as these pipes are still used as replacement for steel pipes due to their lower weight, anti-statics characteristics and resistance against corrosion.

From the 1960s composite pipes were also used in water management applications.
Today composite pipes are available in a variety of sizes and pressure ranges:
