Compliance Testing

Testing is the single most important aspect of any composite product used for Restoration and Repair. Powerwrap's technology has been researched and tested by Stress Engineering Services, and internally by Air Logistics Corporation Engineers, Powerwrap staff and augmented by credible and respected laboratories and test facilities recognized around the globe. These laboratories and test facilities have played an instrumental role in the evaluation, verification and enhancement of products. Our Products have been thoroughly tested to meet the material qualification and design requirements of the ASME PCC-2 standard as well as U.S. DOT 49 CFR 192 and 195 and ISO 24817 of composite repair systems for high and low pressure pipelines. These highly recognizable agencies have reviewed enough data on composites to allow them to be used. Through extensive research and design, Aquawrap® has been proven to be a reliable method for repairing external pipeline damage such as corrosion and dents. Additionally, our products have been tested and approved by numerous governmental and private industrial laboratory and technical groups. Please do not hesitate to request a copy of the different tests that have been performed on the product for use on high pressure piping and concrete structures.

The Composite Repair System that is chosen to be used should be able to meet all the requirements of DOT 192 & 195, ASME PCC-2 and ISO 24817. Aquawrap® is also ANSI/NSF 61 approved for contact with potable water. Companies that are either unwilling or unable to meet the requirements of these standards should not be used to repair high pressure pipelines . Our Products Meet the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR 192.713 (a)(1) for natural gas pipelines and Title 49 CFR 195.585 (a)(2) for liquid pipelines which states "Repair the pipe by a method that reliable engineering test and analyses show can permanently restore the serviceability of the pipe"

Various tests have been completed to qualify the material, some of which were: Tensile Strength, Tensile Modulus, Flexural Strength, Glass transition Temperature and Heat Distortion Temperature, Full Scale Burst Testing of Pipes with Corrosion and Dent Defects, Full Scale Testing of Pipes with Dent-Gouge Defects, Lap Shear to Steel, Alkali and Salt Water Soaks, Compressive Strength, Long Term Creep Testing, Cyclic Loading, Interlaminar Shear.
