Why do you use Kevlar® tape for reinforcement?

Because Kevlar® tape has lots of advantages compared to carbon fiber or fiberglass:

  • Strong but not rigid
  • Non-conductive
  • Abrasion resistant
  • No galvanic effect or cathodic protection issue
  • High mechanical properties
  • Non-hazardous for users (it can be handled without any risk for the applicator)
  • High strain at failure allows the composite sleeve deformation according to pipe elongation
  • Large range of application (applicable on welds, oval pipes …) and available in various width sizes (25, 50, 100 & 300mm)
