GROEBNER proudly distributes NRI’s pipe repair solutions. For over 30 years, NRI has led the industry in research and development, engineering design, and manufacturing of pre-impregnated and field saturated composite strengthening systems that restore, protect and reinforce pipes, pipelines and civil structures. Below is a sampling of NRI’s offerings. For more product information or to place an order, contact us.  More detailed information can also be found at www.neptuneresearch.com.


Bury, Bore, or Drill with Confidence
The Scar-Guard™ line of products is patented and designed to protect field joint coatings from the abrasion stresses and scarring of directional drilling, HDD and boring. Scar-Guard creates an abrasion resistant, sacrificial outer laminate which protects pre-approved field joint coatings such as epoxies, shrink sleeves, and cold or hot applied tapes. Controlled set times, packaging and extreme conformability provide for fast installations in any project environment. The Scar-Guard line of products minimize the need for costly spot repairs after pull back and provide long-term protection of underlying field joint coatings.


Bury, Bore, or Drill with Confidence
Syntho-Sleeve® Outer Wrap is designed to protect welded field joints on pipelines from the abrasion stresses and scarring of directional drilling and boring. Syntho-Sleeve provides mechanical protection to the preapproved corrosion coating of your choice, such as viscous elastic coatings, epoxy coatings, shrink sleeves, and cold applied tapes. This unique product has a faster setting time, is easy to apply, has a very low profile, is extremely conformable, and is highly impact resistant. The result is cost-effective, long-term protection against corrosion for buried pipelines of with superior mechanical protection.


Fiberglass Pipeline Integrity Restoration System
Syntho-Glass® XT system is a unique pre-impregnated, bi-directional composite used to repair and reinforce both internal and external corrosion on pipelines or structures. Our pre-preg system ensures proper fiber-to-resin content ratios which are crucial to reliable performance. This OQ engineered system minimizes the time and cost of refurbishment by reducing the time to repair, as well as the replacement cost. When used with the appropriate primary coating, Syntho-Glass XT enables one to repair and reinforce virtually any geometry in minutes.


Carbon Fiber Pipeline Integrity Restoration System
Viper-Skin™ is the first bi-axial, hybrid carbon and glass fiber polyurethane pre-preg system that blends the unsurpassed strength and stiffness of carbon with the ease of use of a moisture-cured pre-preg. The time and cost associated with in-field saturation of the composite is removed from the equation altogether and eliminates the inconformity caused by human variability. The moisture-curing properties of Viper-Skin allow for subsea and wet environment applications. This OQ engineered system conforms to all shapes, welds, and irregular geometries, and one size can be used on a variety of pipe diameters.


Superior Protection for Pipes and Supports
Syntho-Support™ was designed to be a superior wrapping system for pipe support areas to prevent future corrosion and abrasion due to crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion, heat affected zone corrosion, and vibration abrasion. This system, when used with a corrosion coating of your choice, provides exceptional mechanical and impact protection on steel (CS & SS), galvanized, concrete, FRP, iron, and PVC. Syntho-Support can be used underwater, underground or above ground pipes and piles. Syntho-Support is used for corrosion and abrasion prevention only.


Fiberglass Water-Activated Composite Solution
Syntho-Glass® is the originally, patented fiberglass pre-impregnated composite that is activated by salt or freshwater. This system, when used with the appropriate primary patch, enables you to repair and reinforce virtually any diameter pipe in minutes. Syntho-Glass not only restores a pipe to its original psi rating, but actually can make the repair area stronger than the original pipe, reducing downtime, saving in parts and labor. With an initial cure time of only 30 minutes (75°F/24°C), Syntho-Glass is a versatile solution for industries where quick-action repair can be critical.


Superior UV and Mechanical Protection
Syntho-Glass® UV has been specifically designed to be an aesthetically pleasing, non yellowing superior wrapping system to provide UV stabilization for pipe coatings, previous composite repairs or anywhere UV degradation is a concern. Syntho-Glass UV prevents future corrosion and abrasion due to mechanical impact, frost heave, crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion, and vibration abrasion at soil to air interface, water to air interface and pipe support areas. This system provides exceptional mechanical and impact protection. Syntho-Glass UV can be used underwater, underground or on above ground pipes and piles.
