StrongBack® Marine Solutions

There is no more adverse or corrosive environment than the sea and due to its simple wet-layup application and water-activated resin component, StrongBack is at home in the water.

StrongBack can be applied in the splash zone and underwater, generally without the need and expense of a dry environment or habitat. No underwater welding is required to return a compromised underwater pipeline to full-strength. The StrongBack application procedure is simple and fast, limiting the amount of time that a diver or technician must spend in adverse conditions.

For repairs in the splash zone, where less-than-perfect surface preparation is possible, water will not interfere with StrongBack’s effectiveness or compromise the integrity of the repair.

Due to its great strength, StrongBack is ideally suited for abrasion prevention applications, where persistent abrasion by flotsam, jetsam and marine debris can deteriorate platform risers, pipes, footings and pilings.

StrongBack is widely used by the marine sector in oil and gas exploration and recovery, shipping, port operations and bridge maintenance.
