Strongpipe® V-Wrap™ Carbon Fiber

About Strongpipe® V-Wrap™ Carbon Fiber

StrongPIPE® V-Wrap™ Carbon Fiber is a structural strengthening system for the restoration and renewal of concrete, metallic and polymer-based pipelines. The system has been tested and meets or exceeds durability requirements (ICC-ES) necessary to provide the desired service life for pipeline structures.

StrongPIPE® V-Wrap™ Carbon Fiber (CFRP) systems are comprised of high-strength carbon fibers fully saturated in a 2-part 100% solids epoxy matrix. These thin, low-profile laminates are bonded to the interior or exterior of pipelines forming a composite lining with the existing host pipe structure.

Key features

  • * Fully structural repair system – custom designed to address all internal pressure and external loads.
  • * Low profile system (typically 3/8-inch to 1-inch).
  • * Long term lifecycle extension of pipeline assets.
  • * Segmental repairs or extended reaches of pipe, fits straight and curved pipe sections (virtually any pipe geometry).
  • * Restores full functional capacity of distressed, degraded or damaged pipelines .
  • * Upgrade the structural capacity of an existing pipe allowing increased operating pressure .
  • * Maintains water tightness of pipe under changing conditions of original pipe .

Suitable industries

Applied both longitudinally and circumferentially, the StrongPIPE® V-Wrap™ system is layered to meet specific design requirements. Working with STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES, owners and consultants receive comprehensive design and technical support from project start to implementation in the field.
