COLDSHIELD The only Cold reinforcement Class-Approved for hull girder strength
This new technology is based on the proven techniques of bonded composite reinforcement already used in other industries such as aerospace, military and civil engineering.
• The ColdShield solution minimizes the use of hot work during the whole repair process. As part of COLD PAD products, it enables structural reinforcement capacities in a prequalified and controlled durable manner.• It also acts as a hard coating that offer a reliable protection of the hull by shielding the existing steel panels against further corrosion.
• It is made of highly stable materials already widely used in the offshore industry.
• It can be installed almost everywhere: on a side shell, in water ballast tank or even in a crude oil tank.
• Class-Approved alternative to Crop and Renew

ColdShieldTM Standard Process
|1- First, a prerequisite Site Survey is performed.||2- Then, engineering and structural design are carried out.||3- The Prefabrication of the pads is performed by manufacturers to Aerospace standards.|
|4- The two-step Installation Process is carried out: A qualified Surface Preparation is performed prior to the Vacuum-Assisted Injection of the structural polymer (epoxy resin).||5- Finally, specific NDT are used for Structural Monitoring.|
