In addition to the strength, weight and conform-ability advantages, composites are more widely used now because they have been field proven and are cost effective.
As a repair or reinforcement, composites can cost much less to install when compared to traditional welded sleeve or replacement methods. In piping or infrastructure repairs, costs associated with downtime, fabrication and installation can be tremendous. In most cases composites can be installed with no downtime, no hot work, less manpower and can be designed as a permanent repair.
Introduction of standardized testing and regulatory compliance guidelines have also made the composite repairs a more viable alternative. Manufacturers that perform testing in accordance to these exacting standards can provide more accurate data used to engineer effective composite repairs.
