High Performance pipeline coatings are now available - HORIZON Industrial distributes for US based Polyguard Products, Inc. which has been a manufacturer of buried pipeline coatings since 1950.
One of the company’s most successful products has been the RD-6 buried Pipeline Coating System, which was launched in 1987. The RD-6 System has been used by a large sector of the U.S. Oil & Gas industry for over 25 years. Whilst the product was initially used by customers for pipeline maintenance and rehabilitation, it is now also used widely for protection of girth welds on all new pipelines such as those installed throughout the massive shale oil and shale gas fields. Millions of square metres of pipelines have been coated throughout the world using the RD-6 System.
As a superior and differentiated tape system, the RD-6 offers excellent soil stress resistance, installs faster than most other coatings, is proven to be non-shielding to cathodic protection currents in case of disbondment, and requires no cure. RD-6 is a single layer system, applied with a liquid primer. In very harsh applications an optional soil stress resistant outer wrapping layer is also available. In accordance with the installation specifications the RD-6 is applied with a 1” overlap. The coating can be applied with or without initial preparation such as sand blasting and as a single layer coating, RD-6 offers substantially higher production rates during application in the field.
Anti-corrosion coating system applied to corroding pipeline
In addition to the RD-6 Coating System the company manufactures a Reactive Gel (RG) with mineralization technology, which has also been in use for decades throughout the USA and more recently throughout the world. Ideally suited for crevice environments, the RG gels have been used by the energy, military, food & beverage, petrochemical and pharmaceutical sectors in the fight against Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI). With a performance independent of surface preparation for results, and highly effective in crevices, the gels have replaced traditional paint solutions, especially in the U.S. food and beverage industry. With features such no need for surface preparation, simplicity of application, no precise thickness control, no precise cure times and no complicated application equipment the RG Gels range have become a highly attractive option for those customers who have ongoing issues with CUI.
Polyguard is celebrating its 20th year of consecutive, unbroken sales expansion throughout the world. The company is 70% employee owned through its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) and has a goal to be 100% ESOP-owned in the coming years.
