Typically Pipeline Coating or Wrapping Systems are designed to protect areas of the pipe surface which cannot be factory coated such as the girth welds on new buried pipeline constructions, river & road crossings and other areas. In addition Pipeline Coating and Wrapping Systems are used on existing buried pipelines to provide protection against corrosion where the existing factory-applied and/or field applied coatings have failed after a number of years in service due to poor quality materials or mechanical damage.
Polyguard Products, Inc. are manufacturers of high performance anti-corrosion pipeline coating and wrapping systems. Specific pipeline anti-corrosion coating systems such as Polyguard's RD-6 allow cathodic protection currents to reach any disbonded area which may occur along the pipeline. To date, neither external corrosion nor SCC has been detected as a problem under the RD-6 Coating System.
Polyguard's coating and wrapping systems are manufactured for individual anti-corrosion/sealing problems and were developed with the realities of an on-site application in mind. The extensive product range is suitable for use in a wide range of highly corrosive environments.
The RD-6 Pipeline Wrapping System has been used on thousands of projects around the world for over 25 years and has a proven track record backed by documented case histories. HORIZON Industrial are the exclusive distributors & applicators for Polyguard Products, Inc. throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
