Figure 10 is a partial cross section showing the
sealing of the tubular corrugated structure by
the tape as shown in Figure 9.
Figure l1 is another modified forming of my
apparatus in which I show an apparatus for con

Certain problems arise in connection with the
manufacture of corrugated structures from resin
impregnated ñbrous materials because of the.
particular properties of the resin impregnated
component parts in the structure and operations
involved in forming .and maintaining the corru

It is a further object of the present invention to 15
provide a novel apparatus for continuously form- _
ing resin impregnated corrugated structures of
tubular shape.
