About HLB


First in Korea to obtain class certification for offshore pipes

Since developing GRE/GRP Pipes in 2009, the HLB Pipe division has specialized in supplying high-quality GRE/GRP Pipes to shipyards in and outside of Korea, and the power generation & petrochemical plant market.

Recently, for industrial and marine piping, GRE/GRP pipes are being substituted for conventional steel pipes. Compared to steel pipes, GRE/GRP pipes offer a longer service life at a lower maintenance cost, at a similar or lower price, depending on the operating condition.

Following the recent trend to apply GRE/GRP pipes for SOx Scrubbers and Ballast systems, GRE/GRP piping is an emerging entity in the new-building and retrofit market.
