Repair of Utility Poles in Service
Corrosion-damaged steel poles and columns in industrial facilities can be repaired in a few hours while the facility remains fully operational. The retrofit can be designed to enhance both axial and flexural capacity of the pole or column. The carbon or glass PileMedic laminates will prevent the corrosion of the host structure, offering a long maintenance-free service life.
Corrosion-Damaged Bridge Piles
The ease of installation of PileMedic allows repair and strengthening of corrosion-damaged bridge piles without any disruption of service or road closure to the traveling public. The jackets can be installed over a portion or the entire height of the column. PileMedic jackets offer significant gain in strength and will prevent further deterioration of the piling from deicing chemicals.
Deteriorated Underwater Piles
PileMedic's unique technology and moisture-insensitive resins allow repair and strengthening of piles underwater eliminating the need for coffer dams. In many cases, these repairs can be performed without the need for costly divers. The jacket stops the flow of oxygen to the pile, and nearly ends the corrosion process!
