marine frp

The Tyfo® system is installed in severely aggressive marine environments (e.g. ports, wharves, piers, jetties, etc.), to prevent loss of strength due to corrosion and to extend the life of the structure.The Tyfo® system is designed to regain the capacity of corrosion damaged structures in and around waterways, meets specified structural criteria and provides environmental protection by:

  • Rehabilitating corroded or distressed members
  • Performing seismic repairs of structural components
  • Using prefabricated systems for underwater applications
  • Controlling corrosion and protecting elements from aggressive environments
  • Extending the service life of coastal, riverfront and oceanfront structures

In addition to protecting structural elements and regaining their original strength, the Tyfo® system may also be designed to increase the original capacity for change-of-use retrofit projects. The Tyfo®system, whether wet lay-up or prefabricated, can be installed on circular, octagonal, rectangular and alternatively shaped cross sections.

Tyfo® PR jackets are prefabricated using the Tyfo® system and are thoroughly tested, accepted and installed all around the world.

Tyfo® PR jackets are composed of:

  • Tyfo® SW-1 Epoxy: specially formulated NSF/ANI listed, two-component epoxy designated for partial or complete underwater cure
  • Tyfo® PR Jackets: pre-fabricated Tyfo® system jackets that bond back onto themselves using Tyfo® SW-1 Epoxy
  • Tyfo® PR Grouts: Fyfe offers both cementitious and epoxy-based grout for the Tyfo® PR jacketing system

Fyfe also offers the Tyfo® CP (cathodic protection) system. The Tyfo® CP system is composed of:

  • Aluminum mesh (sacrificial anode)
  • Conductive mortar
  • Tyfo® SEH or SCH materials
  • Tyfo® MC (monitoring cables) for measuring electric potentials and corrosion rates

The unique combination of Tyfo® systems with sacrificial anodes provides corrosion mitigation as well as structural enhancement.
