West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Neptune Research Inc. (NRI) has announced that its innovative new product Syntho-Glass® XT has been chosen as the winner for Plant Engineering Magazine's 2008 product of the year. Chosen by a panel of industry experts, and voted on by reader ballot, Syntho-Glass® XT has been honored for creating a top new product.
Syntho-Glass® XT is a unique pre-impregnated, bi-directional fiberglass composite pipe repair system used to repair and reinforce both internal and external corrosion damage without expensive and time consuming shutdowns. The system is easy to use and conforms to complex geometries making it suitable to a variety of leak repair and pipe rehabilitation applications. XT can be used for Pipeline Remediation to any of the following surfaces: carbon, stainless and alloy steel pipe, fittings, flanges, structural supports, for above ground, below ground, sub-sea and splash zone service. Repairs meet the requirements of the US DOT, ASME PCC2 article 4.1, ISO TS24817 and API 570. XT comes in rolls ranging from 2" wide by 15' long to 12" wide by 120' long.
Syntho-Glass® XT is set apart from other rehabilitation options because its pre-preg system eliminates field mixing and wetting out of the composite, ensuring optimum fiber to resin content ratios, which is crucial to reliable performance. When using XT, long sections may be coated with one single application.
Palm Beach-based NRI engages in the development, manufacture and marketing of a patented resin impregnated fiberglass cloth that provides an effective and cost efficient solution for pipe repair.
