CanusaTube™ by Canusa-CPS is a heat shrinkable tubular sleeve designed for corrosion protection of buried and exposed steel pipelines. CanusaTube™ consists of a crosslinked polyolefin backing, coated with a protective heat sensitive adhesive which effectively bonds to steel substrates and common pipeline coatings including polyethylene and fusion bonded epoxy.
Features & Benefits Rapid & Reliable Installation: Because CanusaTube™ consists of a unique tubular configuration that has been factory constructed, quick and reliable field installation is easy to accomplish. CanusaTube™ is available with a specially formulated adhesive to accommodate demanding operating temperatures and soil stress conditions. To further optimize installation, CanusaTube™ is available in yellow which includes a thermochromic indicator to visually confirm proper installation.
Long-Term Corrosion Protection: CanusaTube™ provides excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment resulting in effective long term corrosion protection. The high performance crosslinked backing in combination with the specially formulated adhesive is engineered to have excellent resistance against temperature cycling, and chemical and environmental attack.
Saves Time & Money: With CanusaTube’s™ unique construction, less time is required handling, positioning and installing separate closures. With the application of heat, this feature allows for fast, simple and complete installation of the sleeve. No additional costly primers are required. This minimizes installation time and labor costs while promoting high production rates. CanusaTube™ is also available in a high shrink ratio for high profile joint protection.
