Repair of pipelines with fiber reinforced polymer composite material is one the most efficient methods of restoring pipeline integrity without shutdown permanently or temporarily.
Application of the right composite architecture along with quality materials is key to the performance of the repair.
PROKEM has a long experience with anticorrosion protective coatings and fibre reinforcement materials. The best resin based raw material suppliers have been selected to reach the highest possible performance. Fiber glass or carbon threads are also carefully tested and selected. They are exclusively woven for PROKEM, who designs and specifies the fibre complex architecture.
Research does not only concentrate on sleeve repair strength performance but also on long term bonding performance and installation conditions.
For our certified testings, we use the facilities of Newcastle University in England, EUPEC (Dunkerque), CETIM, ECAM (Lyon) and LNE (Laboratoire National de Méthodologie et d’Essais) in France.
