Why Composites?
Using composites for repairs and reinforcement offers several significant advantages, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. Here are the primary reasons why composites, particularly carbon fiber composites, are preferred:


  1. Stronger than Steel
    1. High Tensile Strength: Carbon fiber composites can have tensile strengths ranging from 100 to 500 KSI, making them up to 10 times stronger than steel. This superior strength-to-weight ratio ensures that reinforced structures can withstand high loads and stresses without compromising their integrity.
    2. Enhanced Durability: The high strength of carbon fiber composites contributes to their durability, providing long-lasting reinforcement that outperforms many traditional materials.
  2.  
  3. Easy to Apply
    1. Simple Installation Process: The application of carbon fiber composites is straightforward and does not require specialized tools or extensive training. This ease of installation reduces labor costs and downtime.
    2. Flexibility and Adaptability: Carbon fiber starts as a pliable fabric and liquid resin, allowing it to conform to various shapes and sizes. This adaptability makes it suitable for reinforcing complex geometries and difficult-to-reach areas.
    3. Quick Installation: The installation process is typically faster than traditional repair methods, such as welding. The resin cures within 24 to 48 hours, allowing the structure to return to service quickly.
  4.  
  5. Outstanding Corrosion and Chemical Resistance
    1. Chemical Resistance: The epoxy resins used with carbon fiber composites are highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them ideal for applications in harsh industrial environments where exposure to corrosive substances is common.
    2. Corrosion Resistance: Unlike metal, carbon fiber does not corrode. This property is crucial for applications involving exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other corrosive elements, ensuring the longevity and reliability of the repair.
    3. Galvanic Barrier Solutions: While galvanic corrosion can be a concern when combining carbon fiber with metals, various methods (such as isolation layers and corrosion-resistant coatings) effectively prevent it, ensuring the integrity of both materials.
       
  6. Longevity: Our composite systems and equipment are designed to withstand the test of time. By using durable materials that are impervious to corrosion, we ensure that our products maintain their integrity and performance over many years of service, ultimately lowering the life cycle costs for our customers.
     
  7. Cost-Effectiveness: The long-term cost savings are significant. By minimizing maintenance, repair, and replacement costs, our composite solutions offer a compelling return on investment for our customers, often lower than traditional repair methods due to reduced labor, minimal downtime, and lack of maintenance.
     
  8. Tailored Solutions: We recognize that every application is unique, which is why we offer personalized assistance in material selection. Our team of experts will work closely with you to understand your specific process conditions and requirements, recommending the best-suited materials for your application. Whether you're familiar with composites or not, we'll guide you through the selection process to ensure that you receive the most suitable and state-of-the-art materials for your equipment.
     
Additional Benefits
  • Low Visibility: Carbon fiber repairs are discreet and can be painted over, making them nearly invisible and preserving the aesthetic appearance of the structure.
  • No Maintenance: Once installed, carbon fiber repairs require no ongoing maintenance, reducing long-term costs and effort.
  • Longevity: Carbon fiber repairs provide a service life of up to 20 years, ensuring long-term durability and performance.
