Composites & Wraps

REPAIR AND REINFORCE A WIDE RANGE OF STRUCTURES WITH COMPOSITE WRAPS


Composite wraps’ versatility, durability, and ease of installation make them a valuable asset in maintaining the integrity of critical infrastructure Colt’s repair techniques rehabilitate and strengthen damaged structures.

The wraps work by sharing the hoop load carried by the structure. A high-compressive composite strength material fills the external defect to its original wall thickness, preventing leaks from the compromised structure.

FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMER (FRP) WRAPS


FRP wraps are typically made of layers of fiberglass fabric or carbon fiber fabric impregnated with epoxy resin. An FRP composite wrap is commonly used for:

  • Rehabilitating and strengthening concrete structures, including columns, beams, and bridge piers
  • Repairing and reinforcing pipelines and tanks

COMPOSITE REPAIR SLEEVES


Composite repair sleeves are composed of composite materials similar to FRP wraps but in the form of pre-manufactured sleeves. Composite repair sleeves are used for:

  • Repairing defects in pipelines, including corrosion, dents, and cracks
  • Providing a quick and effective solution to ensure the integrity of a pipe

COMPOSITE OVERWRAPS FOR PRESSURE VESSELS & TANKS


Composite overwraps for pressure vessels consist of advanced composites designed to provide additional strength to pressure vessels and tanks. They are primarily used:

  • To reinforce and extend the life of pressure vessels, tanks, and piping systems

PIPE WRAP REPAIR KITS


Pipe wrap repair kits contain composite materials, often in the form of rolls or patches, along with adhesives and tools for on-site repair. They are versatile and can be employed in emergency situations to repair leaks and damage in pipelines, even while they are in operation.

CONCRETE CRACK REPAIR WRAPS


A concrete crack repair composite wrap typically includes carbon fiber or fiberglass strips embedded in epoxy resin. They are utilized to:

  • Strengthen and restore the structural integrity of concrete elements, such as buildings, bridges, and process equipment pads.
