XCorr Composite Repair Kit
XCorr Composites employ a filled, novolac epoxy resin paired with a non-crimp, high-strength quadraxial fiberglass weave to provide superior mechanical reinforcement and chemical resistance.
When pipe strength has been compromised due to corrosion or mechanical damage, XCorr Composite Repair Kits provide a path to return to service without costly pipe replacement. The high performance epoxy resin and advanced-weave fiberglass reinforcement create a PCC-2 compliant composite, which is easy to install, yet provides superior mechanical strength and high chemical resistance.
