Nano Filament Composites Presentation


Reinforcement and corrosion protection of steel substrates using Nano Filament Composites and Vacuum Application Technology


This pressure test of pre-cured C-Clamp tested to 7500psi has no circumferential reinforcement 3 .C – Clamp bonded to pup joint being lowered for pressure testing.

C – Clamps are reinforced composite laminates either prefactory formed or Site cured soft laminates under vacuum 1 C-Clamp 2 3 Structural laminates 4 .

Nano Filament and Vacuum Applied C – Clamps Benefits • Nano provides a stronger bond to the substrate • Consolidates the laminate and substrate interface • Removes air molecules under vacuum conditions • Considerably reduces the potential for corrosion 5 .

Good surface preparation ensures long term corrosion protection. Nano Filament Bonding Paste bonds to steel grain (even when highly corroded). Through hole Surface preparation SA 2.5 6 .

Nano Filament Bonding Paste Nano Filament Bonding Paste is brush applied as a primer 7 .

C-Clamps are either preformed in two halves (used for leaking pipes) or site applied ‘soft’ laminate wrap 8 .

Pre-cured C-Clamps positioned over Nano Filament Bonding Paste (before vacuum application) Illustration shows pre-cured C-Clamps before vacuum Soft laminates can also used over bonding paste All applications are vacuum de-bulked 9 .

ready for structural wrapping to ASME PCC-2 2011 The Nano bonding paste and C-Clamp provides a tenacious bond to substrate with high flexural properties to accommodate the pipeline thermal expansion stresses Nano Composite C-Clamps have a similar thermal coefficient value to carbon steel 11 .C-Clamps after vacuum application .

The fibres (visible) are from the destruction of the C-Clamp laminate not the Nano filament bonding paste which remains 100% homogenous to the steel substrate and the composite C clamp. chisels and high impact steel bars.

Benefits of Engineered C-Clamp laminates • Tenacious Nano Filament Bonding to substrate • C-Clamps are engineered with high flexural properties • Nano Composites provide a coefficient of thermal expansion very similar to steel • C-Clamp laminates are vacuum applied • C-Clamp are easily reinforced by high modulus laminate wrap 15 .
