COLDSHIELD The only Cold reinforcement Class-Approved for hull girder strength

Class-approved by
Logo_BV     Type Approved Product Seal
ColdShield is the first product developed by COLD PAD. It is the result of a partnership with TOTAL and the Institut Français du Pétrole – Energies Nouvelles
ColdShield is designed to permanently restore the initial structural capacity and durably protect the damaged area against further corrosion.
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
