Pipe Repair for Leaks
Reinforcement Containment and Corrosion Protection
Introduction: Syntho-Glass®,a patented fiberglass cloth impregnated with a water activated resin, is the latest advancement in composite reinforcement technology. An external fiberglass sleeve is fabricated in the field, over the pipe requiring repairs for; leaks, reinforcement containment or corrosion protection. Application techniques are simple, quick and cost effective. Syntho-Glass® is very versatile and can be applied underwater, above or below ground.
Syntho-Glass® is the latest development and technological advancement in the use of composites for remedial repairs to defects and anomalies in pipelines. De-pressurizing and shutdowns are very costly and are not the most desirable method of repairing pipelines. Pipelines that are in jeopardy of a catastrophic failure due to wall thickness erosion, from external and/or internal corrosion, are especially suited for external pipeline reinforcement and containment, using a fiberglass cloth & resin composite, such as Syntho-Glass®. Syntho-Glass® is a patented, fiberglass cloth impregnated with a resin that is activated by salt or fresh water. Packaged in a hermetically sealed foil pouch, it is ready to use and does not require any measuring or mixing. This fiberglass cloth tape can be applied underwater, in arid, humid or dry conditions, including tropical climates. The initial cure (setting) time of Syntho-Glass® is 30- 60 minutes with a complete cure in less than 24 hours @ 70°F (21°C). This innovative fiberglass cloth / resin composite, once cured, is resistant to petroleum products, has very good chemical resistance and resists both high and low temperature extremes. Syntho-Glass® is safe to use, non-toxic, non-combustible and odorless. Syntho-Glass® exhibits good adhesion to most surfaces including; steel, iron, pvc, frp and most metals and plastics. Once cured can also be sanded and painted.

INTRODUCTION & DESCRIPTION
Syntho-Steel Epoxy Mastic, is a two part steel reinforced, non sagging, formulation with a pot life of approximately 1 hour and is available in 8 oz. and 16 oz. pre-weighed kits. Syntho-Steel, Epoxy Mastic contains a steel reinforced epoxy resin and a special hardening agent which, when combined, will cure overnight to become as hard as steel. This versatile epoxy is designed for repairing and sealing large anomalies, surface imperfections, leaking joints, pipes and fittings on large diameter piping. Ideal as a reinforcement metal filler on pipelines with wall loss abnormalities, caused by corrosion and erosion. Ideal for repairing almost anything made of metal, masonry, wood, ceramic, glass and many plastics. It contains no solvents, is non-toxic and easily prepared for application. Unlike liquid epoxies, Syntho-Steel will not drip or sag and can be applied to wet surfaces. The Syntho-Steel Epoxy Mastic is a high performance formulation that exhibits improved adhesion and withstands very high pressures.
Use Syntho-Steel Epoxy Mastic to repair cracks and holes in; pipes, tanks, valves, ducts, air conditioning coils, as well as for, pipeline; anomalies, reinforcement and re-construction.
