PowerSleeve®, our engineered composite kit, consists of a fabric that is a
hybrid alloy, non-crimped system, employing a high grade E-glass and Kevlar®
yarns, or C-2 carbon fabric arranged in a multi-axis layout that maximizes the ultimate composite strengths.
This fabric is factory pre-treated using a state-of-the-art process which assures that all
the micro-fibers in the wall will be matrix-wetted. Tests of these pre-treatments show a
finished PowerSleeve® installation is much stronger than an untreated lay-up.
Powersleeve is available in varius carbon and glass fabirc to fit numerous applications.
PowerMatrix grade is selected for your application type. We used custom formulations
that give our product exceptional properties of flexibility, adhesion, toughness, chemical
resistance, thermal resistance, vibration, etc. Special grades are available to handle
Kits ship to field with all components pre-measured and factory sealed.
Everything is included: PowerSleeve® Fabric, PowerMatrix™,
primer, stirring sticks, Stricture Banding™, paint, safety glasses, wipes,
etc. The technician simply lays out a pre-measured fiber reinforcement
segment, mixes the pre-measured resin components (with the furnished mixing
stick) and applies the resin to the reinforcement. No measuring is required
in the field and performance tolerances are tightened with controlled
fabric/matrix ratios. Powersleeve® Brochure

A two-component, ambient temperature matrix used in our PowerSleeve®
composite reinforcement products. This ambient temperature cure matrix wets
out easily and can be applied to our PowerSleeve® W-11 and G-03 Fabrics. It
is relatively fast setting, approximately 30 minutes @77° F and is used
where a maximum service temperature of 180° F is desired. No VOC’s, 100%
solids. This product ships DOT non-hazardous. Technical
A two-component, medium temperature matrix used in our PowerSleeve®
composite reinforcement products. This ambient temperature cure matrix
wets out easily and can be applied to our PowerSleeve® W-11 and G-03
Fabrics. It is relatively fast setting, approximately 60 minutes @77° F
and is used where a maximum service temperature of 300° F is desired.
Intermittent excursions to 325° F can also be tolerated. The color will
change from a mild yellow to dark amber when temperatures rise above 140°
F. This product ships DOT hazardous (corrosive). Technical
Type 70079 Matrix is a premium quality,
two-component, novolac-epoxy hybrid system with excellent exposure
resistance to most military and civilian fuels and a vast array of
chemicals. This product is used as a composite matrix where its fuel and
chemical performances are required. It is very resistant to moisture and
humidity effects. It will cure in high humidity conditions. This product
contains no solvents, is 100% solids, and contains zero VOC’s. This
product ships as non-hazardous.
Technical Data Sheet.
A two-component, heat and chemical resistant matrix used in our PowerSleeve® composite reinforcement
products. This elevated temperature cure matrix wets out easily and can be applied to our PowerSleeve® W-11, G-
03, C-2 carbon and our highly conformable BearTM Fabrics. To achieve its ultimate chemical resistance properties
requires post cure per the instruction sheet. It is relatively fast setting, approximately 80 minutes at the minimum
application temperature of 150° F. Designed for use where maximum service temperature of 450° F is desired.
This product must be post cured in order to achieve the best chemical resistance properties. The color will be dark
amber when temperatures rise above 200° F. This product ships DOT hazardous (corrosive). Technical
