Filament wound composite pressure pipes made of newly developed 3P, various hybrid and reference resin materials and glass fiber filaments were investigated. 3P resins consist of soluble silicates, polyisocyanates and other additives, they are flame and chemical resistant, and capable of curing under wet conditions. Tensile strengths, tensile moduli and effective moduli values obtained from ring stiffness tests were evaluated. Properties of pipe types made of new resin materials were compared to those made of reference resins. A special tensile specimen fabricating process and a cross sectional area calculating method was presented. The calculation method is capable of handling the geometric inaccuracies of specimen prefabrication steps e.g. cutting. Evaluated material properties were discussed by defining dimensionless performance factors. Pipes were classified according to these performance factors and the suitability of the new resin materials for composite pressure pipe manufacturing was established. The best newly developed matrix materials were the 16905 type vinylester-3P hybrid and 16907 type vinylester-urethane hybrid resins, because of their outstanding mechanical properties.
