DIRAX Road Bore Sleeves

DIRAX Bore Sleeves 

     When selecting a coating for a section of pipeline that will be involved in a road bore or directional drill, it is important that the right coating is selected.  When looking at factory applied coatings, you are most likely going to be looking at dual layer FBE coatings or Powercrete coatings.  Those are both special coatings designed to withstand the rigorous conditions of a road bore.  Someone is spending millions of dollars on this pipeline, we need to make sure that the steel you're buying is well protected!  Those same requirements exist for the field joint coatings as well.  Many companies allow either a two part stand alone epoxy to be used...or a DIRAX heat shrinkable coating system.

     DIRAX is a multi layer field joint coating system that incorporates all of the best aspects of two part epoxy coatings and combines them with the best parts of a top of the line, unmatched heat shrinkable sleeve technology.  DIRAX incorporates S1301M Epoxy Primer, a high performance hot melt adhesive a fiber mesh and two radiation crosslinked polyolefin backing layers.  On the front end of a field joint, we are talking about a 9 layer coating that is fast and simple to install.  That just doesn't exist anywhere else.

     Boasting extraordinary peel resistance, sheer resistance, penetration resistance and abrasion resistance, DIRAX has it all.  Include the incredibly fast cure time (normally 30 minutes or less after installation) and the fact that coating integrity does not require any special skills from installers - and using DIRAX really is a simple decision.  Contact us today for pricing and technical expertise!  936 321 3333
