UTComp, Inc is pleased to announce that F.I.T. LLC, (Fiberglass Inspection Technologies) of Morrison, IL has been licensed to collect information using the UTComp System. F.I.T. LLC is able to meet the needs of clients throughout North America.

In 2009, UTComp introduced a unique and innovative approach to the inspection of FRP. In response to repeated requests from end-users needing reliable and valid information about the integrity of FRP equipment and information about life-cycle planning, UTComp began to examine alternatives to traditional inspection techniques: acoustic emission, visual inspection and destructive testing. This work is based on more than 50 years of cumulative academic work.

Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP)
• Lightweight, strong material with very many uses, including tanks, pipe, wind turbines, boats, etc.
• Three key ingredients : Resin/Matrix, Reinforcement (Glass) and Shop Methods and Procedures
• Corrosion resistant for many acids, and chemicals
• Provides structural support and good corrosion protection for thermoplastic linings.
• Shop Methods and Procedures produce most variability in the properties of the product
