Cold Repair

Description:

Techno-wrap composite repair products are engineered repair solutions for pipework integrity and structural strengthening. They consist of fibers reinforced with an epoxy resin. The fiber reinforcements are either carbon or glass. Three types of epoxy resins are available; their selection is based on the overall design conditions and installation temperature of a repair. The repair systems are wet lay-up systems applied on site.

Advantages of using Techno-wrap composite repairs are:

1. Lightweight - ease of handling and transportation

2. Corrosion resistant - no maintenance

3. Can be applied live - no shutdown

4. Requires no hot work permit - ease of installation

5. Requires minimal on site facilities - simplicity of installation

6. Can be applied to any geometry of component - flexibility of application

7. Can be applied in confined spaces 

Range of application:

The fiber reinforcement is woven into various architectures. The selection of fiber type and architecture is based on both performance and cost. Components that can be repaired include:

1. Piping systems (all components, e.g. bends, tees)

2. Pipelines

3. Vessel/tanks (e.g. shells, supports, nozzle attachments)

4. Caissons and risers 5. Walkways, handrails, roofs
