Corrosion protection sleeves for water pipelines
Aqua-Shield™ is a family of heat shrinkable sleeve products that have been specifi cally designed for the corrosion protection of large diameter water pipelines. Various product confi gurations are available that utilize a crosslinked polyolefi n backing, coated with a protective, heat-activated adhesive which effectively bonds to metallic substrates and common pipeline coatings.
Long Term Protection
- Once installed, Aqua-Shield™ provides durable protection against abrasion and chemical attack. The high performance crosslinked backing provides the superior abrasion resistance and mechanical strength required for water transmission and distribution lines. Aqua-Shield™ effectively covers and protects the pipe surface to prevent corrosion. Since no special primers are required, less time is required for installation.
