Acid-Shield™

Description

AcidShield

Composite repair system with superior chemical compatibility for process piping.

Acid-Shield™ is a custom engineered, ASME PCC-2 4.1,4.2 compliant, composite repair system that utilizes chemically resistant, bi-directional fiberglass in conjunction with NRI’s Acid-Shield™ epoxy system. Acid-Shield™ was designed to repair corroded or damaged piping with harsh chemical services such as 98% sulfuric acid.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Repair external or internal corrosion defects on 98% sulfuric acid lines, flare lines, blow down lines, and chemical processing lines

BENEFITS

  • Compatible with 98% sulfuric acid
  • Conformable for repairing elbow, tees, nozzles, welds and headers
  • Ambient-cured epoxy
  • Design conforms to ASME PCC-2, ASME B31, ISO TS 24817, DOT, API, and CSA Z662 standards for nonmetallic reinforcing and repair
