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.
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:
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:
Composite overwraps for pressure vessels consist of advanced composites designed to provide additional strength to pressure vessels and tanks. They are primarily used:
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.
A concrete crack repair composite wrap typically includes carbon fiber or fiberglass strips embedded in epoxy resin. They are utilized to:
