    Pile Encapsulation

    Structural repair in marine environments

    Nature’s forces of deterioration are constant and unrelenting. Nowhere is this fact more evident than in marine environments, where corrosion, wave action, marine organisms and other forces are continually at work. The impact of deterioration can range from aesthetic issues to the general serviceability of a structure, including loss of section and reduced load bearing capacity. Severe deterioration can even result in the abandonment of a structure.

    The Advanced Pile Encapsulation Process has been designed to address these issues. Since 1984, MasterBrace Pile Encapsulation Systems have been used on a wide variety of marine and industrial applications, including bridges, offshore oil and gas structures, dams, piers, pipelines and chemical process facilities.
