Leading composite repair specialist IMG Composites has published a new white paper on the subject of composite pipe repairs versus the more traditional repair technique of utilising clamps. The extensive white paper, which will be published on the IMG Composite Offshore Technology profile, accessed via the below link, goes into great detail on the many benefits and disadvantages of using each method.

The technical department at IMG Composites work on studies of many aspects of the composite repair business, often writing technical service reports for the information of clients and internal development. The paper is primarily the work of a technical support engineer, Stuart McKay, whose background is mechanical engineering and who has previously worked on designs for steel fabrication before joining the technical team behind CompoSol® in 2013.

IMG composites commercial manager Ian Taylor states: "The article is an excellent addition to our technical database which serves as an invaluable information resource for our personnel. We chose to publish this in order for our clients and partners to better understand the issue. It is not a matter of pretending that composite pipe repairs are a panacea for all problems, instead the article is designed to help clarify those areas where composite pipe repairs are more advantageous than clamps and visa versa."

The subject of Clamps vs Composites is a pertinent one and is briefly explored at the IMG Composites website dedicated to Composite Pipe Repairs at www.compositepiperepairs.com.
