CSNRI ViperSkin

CSNRI Viper Skin

ViperSkin™ is the first bi-axial, hybrid carbon and glass fiber, pre-saturated system to blend the unsurpassed strength and stillness of carbon with the ease and use of a moisture-cured, factory-saturated polyurethane. The pre-saturated system ensures appropriate fiber-to-resin content ratios to deliver reliable performance in restoring pipeline integrity on lines with complex geometry.

    Typical Applications:

  • Transmission and distribution pipelines
  • Energy risers and subsea structures
  • Process piping: chemicals, oil, gases, water, and steam
  • Mechanical dents and defects
  • Girth welds on vessels and pipelines
  • Straight pipelines, elbows, tees, and flanges
    Features & Benefits:

  • Moisture-cured polyurethane resin
  • Factory-saturated fiber
  • Full engineering consultation and support
  • Non-shielding
  • Can be applied to any geometry including, but not limited to elbows, tees, and flanges
  • Design conforms to ASME PCC-2, ASME B31, ISO 24817, DOT, API, and CSA Z662 standards for nonmetallic reinforcing solutions
  • Factory saturation of moisture-cured polyurethane resin reduces composite field preparation time by more than 50%
  • Factory saturation ensures the right fiber-to resin ratio with constant strength and mechanical properties
  • Easy application in any conditions, including damp or sweating pipes and in submerged environments
  • No heating or post-curing
  • Suitable for irregular shapes and geometries
  • Can be used on lines of any diameter
