Composite Material Approval

July 6th, 2000

Carver Pump has received approval from the United States Navy to supply Carver material CPC-550, which is a proprietary thermoset composite with vinyl ester resin and glass reinforcement. This material will originally be used for impellers, casing rings, and shaft sleeves.

Approval of this material, which will extend pump life expectancy and reduce weight, represents the culmination of over two years extensive R & D, testing, and qualification processes. Shipments to the U.S. Navy will begin immediately.
