Exploration into Technology: Nonmetallic Standards

Over the last 10 years, innovations in engineering have resulted in nonmetallic (nm) pipes that can support higher pressures and temperatures. For engineers who are designing and working with these materials, expert guidance is needed, as the design requirements are significantly different from those applicable to metallic piping. Which is why ASME recently published its nonmetallic pressure piping system standards: NM.1, NM.2 & NM.3.

Discover the efficiencies of nonmetallic pressure piping and explore ASME's NM standards, which deliver:

  • Clear guidance on which nonmetallic materials to use across multiple applications
  • Comprehensive material properties including physical, mechanical & allowable stress values
  • Industry best practices that will help you plan ahead and drive future opportunity
