COMPA is a method for repair and reinforcement of damaged structures and pipes using composite materials.
The method features application of carbon and glass fibres mixed with epoxy resin/adhesive onto a damaged surface. By curing, the resin hardens and bonds to the surface permanently, impregnating also the fibres that reinstate the strength of the damaged part.
Finally, this procedure creates a solid new layer of material that provides full watertightness.
COMPA bonds strongly to metals, wood and plastics
Reduces crack growth

COMPA repairs can be performed by trained personnel only.
Optimal and robust performance of the repair/reinforcement can be secured if the application is documented and approved by a controlling body, e.g. for ships by a classification society.
All COMPA applications are conducted in a controlled environment and our team takes care of the:
