Corrosion Control International (CCI) is recognized as an industry leader in the design, production, and installation of inshore and offshore subsea and splash zone corrosion control systems. CCI developed its patented, cold, applied Retrowrap ® systems for retrofit protection of pilings, risers, and pipelines as an alternative to factory coatings for new underwater construction in remote areas for quick and easy installation.
Engineered to be the best product on the market, Retrowrap provides years of worry-free protection. Its triple layer construction consists of an outer urethane coating, polyamide reinforcing scrim and a polyester felt inner layer. All three layers are simultaneously bonded together to form a monocoque fabric. This unique construction can be varied by altering the coating thickness or modifying the fabric, which allows us to change physical characteristics such as induced hoop tension, impact and abrasion resistance and puncture strength. This capability permits us to supply different Retrowrap models for various applications.
A significant advantage of Retrowrap's multi-layer construction is its ability to furnish active corrosion protection throughout its design life. A water repellent thixotropic gel, containing corrosion inhibitors or biocidal treatments, is impregnated into the absorbent layers of the wrap. This neutralizes surface onctaminants on the inside and keeps them inert, while controlling marine growth on the outside.
Retrowrap's convenient one piece design and flange closing system makes it the easiest and fastetest system to install, when using our supplied tools. These two features also allow the wrap to be easily removed and refitted for substrate inspection.
All Retrowrap models exhibit very similar quality characteristics, making whichever model you choose a worthwhile investment for years to come.
