The FORTEC system is specifically designed to repair defects on pipelines in service onshore or offshore as a provisional or permanent repair.
It may provide a long term solution for non through wall defects and a short term solution for through wall defects.
It can also be applied underwater.
The FORTEC composite system consists of a glass fibre fabric, designed by PROKEM, impregnated with a high quality, non-toxic, proprietary solvent free epoxy that can cure underwater.
It provides high anticorrosion protection as well as high mechanical reinforcement.
It is particularly suitable for dented or corroded pipelines as well as corroded risers, piping or caissons located in the splash zone or top sides of oil rigs.
It is highly suitable for installations in tropical countries with humid climates.
