For more than 30 years, NRI has focused its strategic research initiatives on the development, manufacturing, and marketing of state-of-the-art pipe repair solutions that withstand the tests of time, water, and other elements. The company’s Syntho-Glass® system has proven to be reliable enough for the U.S. Navy, the Coast Guard, and international natural gas and oil industry conglomerates to require Syntho-Glass® availability for all pipe repairs.
Founded in 1982, NRI developed its pipe repair systems for application within the marine industry. As the original inventors of the moisture-cured, pre-impregnated composite material, NRI caught the attention of the U.S. Navy and, in 1996, secured its first contract with the U.S. government requiring NRI’s Syntho-Glass® system to be carried aboard all Navy vessels.
The company’s success with the U.S. Navy led to the creation of larger and more robust materials. This expansion of its product capabilities allowed for the exploration of opportunities within the natural gas and oil industries. NRI focused on further developing its original product to specifically address the pipe repair and reinforcement challenges within those unique industries.
With its focus on development, NRI experienced substantial success and growth, requiring a move to a new facility in 2009. Since that time, the company has tripled in size and revenues as the demand for its solutions continues to grow. To support this demand, NRI has introduced an average of one new product per year over the last four years, with each product focusing on the company’s participation in the evolution of leak repair and pipe reinforcement.
Next Generation Research and Technology
Upon the invention and patenting of our original, moisture-cured composite system in 1982, NRI has been leading the industry in next-generation research, engineering design, development, manufacture, and marketing of quality pre- and field-saturated composites that restore, protect, and reinforce pipes, pipelines, and civil structures. And today, our dedicated team of engineers and chemists are on the cutting-edge of research and development, formulating, testing and designing tomorrow’s new product breakthroughs in quality composites.
We Serve An Extensive Range of Markets Both Domestically and Globally
NRI’s quality engineered solutions have been used by leading companies, engineers, distributors, contractors, municipalities, and military in the U.S. and globally. Our extensive product portfolio serves a broad range of markets including construction, industrial, marine, military, mining, municipalities, offshore, oil and gas distribution and transmission, and refining and petrochemical. From leak repair, pipeline integrity solutions, to corrosion protection, corrosion repair, coating repair and mechanical reinforcement, NRI engineers work behind the scenes and in the field to restore and protect degrading or failing assets at a fraction of replacement costs.
Engineering that Results in Better Solutions
Leading the industry in the manufacture and installation of quality, cutting-edge composites for nearly 30 years, NRI has earned a reputation for innovative engineering solutions that have stood the of time. With a focus on developing and engineering quality moisture-curable carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar® and other aramid composite solutions, NRI can retrofit and reinforce defects and anomalies to original specifications in pipes, pipelines, and civil structures to help clients restore and protect their degrading or failing assets. And because NRI provides industry-leading engineering solutions in the field, we can repair and reinforce pipelines or civil structures while they remain operational, thereby saving clients millions of dollars in costs and lost revenues.
More and More Government Agencies, Municipalities, and Utilities Trust NRI’s Expert Solutions and Patented Products to Repair and Restore Aging or Damaged Infrastructure
When civil structures need dependable products and solutions to repair structures in a fast and cost-effective manner, they turn to NRI. We know that time lost for repair or replacement disrupts the flow of goods and services, so our quality, state-of-the-art infrastructure repair solutions are designed to ensure that operations are quickly restored or effectively maintained.
