Composite Strengthening (FurmaWrap)

Composite Strengthening – FurmaWrap  – Capabilities

  • Maximum Service Temperature 185°C 365°F
  • Maximum service pressure is dependent on diameter of pipe, design temperature and thickness of repair applied. The majority of applications will be at 50bar (750psi), but service at up to 100bar (1500psi) is possible.
  • Designed to strengthen and/or repair pipes where defects are not leaking
  • Ideal where corrosion has reduced wall thickness below minimum allowable
  • Can be used in splash zones, underwater and on wet surfaces
  • Available in range of widths and lengths to suit pipe sizes and defects
  • Validated in accordance with ISO TS 24817 and ASME PPC-2 Article 4.1
  • Simple to use, pre-impregnated, glass fibre reinforced, structural repair system
  • Ideal for repairing external corrosion
  • Installation takes typically 20 – 30 minutes and a cure time of just 2 hours
  • Saves time and money
  • Strengthens corroded lines, and prevents further damage
  • Can be applied in demanding conditions
  • Simple application technique minimises time on site





Furmanite FurmaWrap is the ideal repair and strengthening solution for pipes where the defects are not leaking.

FurmaWrap can be used underwater and on wet surfaces, is easy to apply, versatile, cost-effective. FurmaWrap has been validated in accordance with the requirements of ISO TS 24817 and ASME PPC-2 Article 4.1 for the repair of pipes that are not leaking and the thickness of the repair required is determined by assessment of the defect in accordance with these guidelines.

FurmaWrap is available in a range of widths and lengths to suit different pipe diameters and defect sizes and can be applied to form a continuous repair along an extended length. It is an ideal solution for pipes where corrosion has reduced the remaining wall thickness to below the minimum allowable or where mechanical damage has affected the line. It provides excellent corrosion protection and strengthening even when applied to wet surfaces or underwater.

FurmaWrap combines a high-strength, glass fibre reinforcement with a durable, moisture-cured polyurethane resin. The system is factory-manufactured so that the glass fibre cloth arrives on site already impregnated with the resin. An initial layer of epoxy adhesive is first applied to fill any defects and provide a corrosion barrier. The composite is applied over the top of this to provide the strength. Installation is therefore straightforward, safe and fast and gives a repair that will outlast the 20 years life currently allowed in the ISO and ASME guidance documents. Whilst best suited for straight lines, elbows and reducers it can also be used to repair tees and other off-takes and can be applied to wet surfaces or even under water. With installation taking typically only 20-30 minutes and a cure time of two hours, it’s easy to see how FurmaWrap can save you time and money on a regular basis.
