Milliken Infrastructure Solutions LLC (MIS) has announced a strategic alliance with WrapMaster to offer customers a broader set of composite repair solutions. WrapMaster, a Texas-based fiber reinforced polymer manufacturing company, specializes in rigid coil systems for the oil and gas industry.
“Our partnership with WrapMaster emphasizes our commitment to integrity and bringing best-in-class solutions to our customers,” said Jim Souza, director of technology at MIS. “Together, we now have the industry’s widest composite repair product offering, with the only rigid coil system to be third-party tested and approved up to 80 percent wall loss.”
The Pipe Wrap family of products, which include A+ Wrap, Atlas, FormaShield and SplashGard, combined with the capabilities of WrapMaster’s products, will offer a broader set of solutions to its customer base.
WrapMaster manufactures PermaWrap and WeldWrap, the only composite pipeline repair sleeves designed to be detected by magnetic flux leakage (MFL) “smart pig” tools. PermaWrap composite reinforcement sleeve is a patented, pre-manufactured rigid coil system available in widths up to 18 in. with “diamond grip” embossment technology. This technology provides a mechanical locking system that allows the individual layers of the wrap to nest within each other, minimizing the risk of telescoping and providing an overall easier installation process.
PermaWrap no longer requires the composite to solely rely on the adhesive and risk disbondment, an unresolved issue among other rigid coil systems. WeldWrap is the only single unit rigid composite pipe repair system designed to reinforce defects in or near the girth weld, which can reduce repair time by nearly 60 percent and save on material costs.
“It makes sense to align with MIS and its similar values of superior customer service and continuous innovation,” said Glenn Davis, president and CEO of Wrapmaster. “Our constant dedication to provide a worldwide customer base with trusted products that last will continue with this partnership.”
WrapMaster has served the oil and gas industry for more than 20 years, attracting a worldwide customer base with innovative products at a reasonable price.
