REINFORCEKiT® 4D-ECHT (R4D-ECHT) is a long-term composite repair system for pipes suffering from external corrosion and mechanical damage at high temperature (up to +110°C).

The original 3X ENGINEERING concept is an association of Kevlar® tape and specific bi-component epoxy resin called R3X1080.

REINFORCEKiT® 4D is a wet lay-up system, wrapped helicoidally around the pipe in order to bring the mechanical resistance to the damaged pipe section.

Designed according to ISO 24.817 and ASME PCC-2 standards, this product will restore pipe original integrity. There is no limit in terms of pipe diameter and pressure, and it could be used without shutdown from -50°C up to +110°C (-58°F to +230°F).

We have developed our own software R.E.A (Reinforcekit Engineering Analysis) to design the composite repair and define the material requirements in accordance with international standards.
