Uncoventional Repairs and Composite Repairs

Since 2014 we provide unconventional repairs services for pipes, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, condensers etc. We can help you minimize the downtime of your plant by combining fast rope access methods with unconventional polymer repair and sealing solutions: polymers of the latest generation, reinforced with glass fiber, carbon or ceramic fiber.

Unconventional repairs, without facility's complete shutdown

Unconventional Repairs Services Description

When common repairs (e.g.: welding) are not possible for various reasons such are: an explosive atmosphere, operating facility that cannot be shutdown, we find unconventional repairs solutions using reinforced polymer resins.

Polymer-based solutions are easily applied after the surface has been properly prepared and, when dried, they reach mechanical properties close to those of the substrate.

NRI Logo

AlpAccess is an authorised applicator for NRI (Neptune Research International) products, world leader of reinforced polymer coatings.

For more than 30 years, NRI has been the leader in the research and development, design and manufacturing of pre-impregnated and saturated composite repair systems that restore, protect and reinforce the pipelines and civil structures.


The reinforcements are stronger than steel and are tested in accordance with ASME PCC-2 and ISO 24817. In the video attached, it is noted that carbon fiber and fiberglass products are tested according to ASME PCC-2 4.1 and ISO 24817, standards that allow the use of non-metallic reinforcements on pipes and pipelines.
