A Scientific Breakthrough in Composite Technology

6408

The strength of C464 is based on high-performance carbon fibers. The carbon atoms arrange themselves in a pattern to create a rigid structure that does not easily deform.

A proprietary resin strongly bonds to steel and the carbon fibers to create a stiff matrix that can transfer any load or force from the steel pipe onto the ultra-strong carbon fiber.

Safer Than a Steel Repair

Noncorroding with no “heat-affected” zone

 

Super-strong composite created at room temperature on-site with no vacuums, high temperatures, or molds necessary

 

Lightweight material easy to install — no welding, no hot work, no shutdown, and less equipment necessary than with steel repairs

 

Material certification and certification of analysis are provided with each lot

Lower Strain Than Pristine Steel Pipe

6412

  • 50% corrosion defect repaired with Steel Wrap demonstrating lower strains than the pristine pipe without a defect
  • All strain measurements under repairs with Steel Wrap are below 400 microstrains
  • Most current repair systems allow the defects repaired in pipelines to see 1800-8800 microstrain based on the PRCI long-term study
  • 250k cycles represents a minimum 50 year design life
