Syntho-Support™

Syntho Support™ has been specifically designed to be a superior wrapping system for pipe support areas to prevent future corrosion and abrasion due to crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion, heat affected zone corrosion, and vibration abrasion. This system, when used with a corrosion coating of your choice, provides exceptional mechanical and impact protection on steel (CS & SS), galvanized, concrete, FRP, iron, PVC, wood. Syntho Support™ can be used underwater, underground or above ground. Syntho-Support is used for corrosion/abrasion prevention only.

Design

Syntho-Support was designed to protect pipe supports. Consult NRI Engineering for specified use.

Surface Preparation

Surface preparation and profiling shall promote continuous intimate contact between the FRP system and pipe by providing a clean, smooth, and circumferential surface. Surface preparation shall be in accordance with SSPC-SP1 “Solvent Cleaning” and SSPC-SP11 “Power Tool Cleaning” with a 1-3 mil surface roughness (25-75 microns) minimum. If existing coating is present, roughen to degloss. NRI’s composite repair systems are bond-critical and require a strong adhesive bond between the clean pipe and the composite system.

Installation

Surface preparation, and installation of the system shall be in accordance with NRI’s SynthoSupport Installation Guide, latest revision. Quality control inspection during and after installation of the system shall be performed per NRI’s Installation Validation Procedure: Quality Control Records, latest revision.

Cleanup and Safety

For proper information regarding the safe handling, storage, and disposal of chemical products, users shall refer to the most recent SDS, latest revision, containing physical, ecological, toxicological, and other safety-related data.
