Due to Polyethylene (PE) pipe's ability to withstand harsh chemicals without corrosion or leaking, it is an ideal material for buried gas and water lines. This method of heat fusion involves heating two surfaces to a designated temperature, and then fusing them together by application of force. The pressure causes the melted materials to flow, producing mixing and thus fusion. Evisive is becoming the worldwide standard for inspecting high density polyethylene (HDPE) thermal butt fusion weld.

Electro-fusion joining uses embedded electrical conductors in the pipe coupling. A high electric current is applied, causing resistive heating which melts and fuses the pipe and fitting material. Evisive technology is unsurpassed at inspecting HDPE.

Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) overwraps. Overwraps stop external corrosion, and structurally reinforce steel pipes by the external wrapping of damaged sections using FRP materials. Evisive technology can be used to monitor the progression of the underlying corrosion.

Ceramic Matrix composites are finding uses in everything from ceramic armor to high temperature engine parts. Evisive inspection has proven to be valuable in the manufacturing process and in in-field periodic maintenance inspections.

High-tech modern composites such as honeycomb panels are used extensively in aircraft and aerospace. Internal structural damage may not be visible from the surface. Inspection of these parts is vital.

Overwraps can be used to structurally reinforce steel pipes by distributing the hoop stresses. Poor overwrap installations may look fine. Evisive inspection can ensure initial installation is performed properly, with no voids, inclusions, or poor bonding, which could weaken the protective capacity of the overwrap.
