Can DIRAX Be Used as an Abrasion Resistant Overcoat?That was the question this week. The answer: ABSOLUTELY. The DIRAX coating system is designed to bond to many different substrates including epoxies and bare steel. As a result, the DIRAX coating system can be installed on top of a previously installed FBE, Powercrete or Denso as an added physical protaction - and as a pure abrasion resistant overcoat.
The installation only changes minimally from a normal field joint coating install. DIRAX has been used for many, many years as a stand alone field joint coating. With a long and unblemished record of successful installations, DIRAX is the best product on the market for protecting pipelines that will be involved in road bores or directional drilling applications.
Installed on everything from 2" pipe to 48" pipe; DIRAX offers a quick and repeatable installation that will protect your pipeline throughout its life. There is no other product like it out in the marketplace.
