Polymer Repair Patch for Civil Structures
Category: Worker Health & Safety > Engineering Controls > Others
Reference # : Model No :
Sellafield experts are leading the development of a repair patch methodology for civil structures, specifically reinforced concrete structures. The technique developed can be used in isolation or in conjunction with the other polymers and sprayed onto a structure to form a repair or seal. This technology and methodology has been developed by Sellafield in conjunction with significant input from expert specialist contractors. The repair applicator is required to work remotely using heating to enhance cure rates and be non-stick to remove the applicator from the cured patch once in place. The patches were proven using simulation and were proven to be climatically independent for deployment.
Can be used in isolation or in conjunction with the other polymers. Can be sprayed onto a structure to form a repair or seal.
Can be deployed using a remote repair applicator.
This technology is still in development and it is not commercially available yet.
