Dragged pipeline

Solartech Laminates all have excellent Impact & Abrasion resistance properties and can be used as sacrificial protection solutions.

This particular application is a perfect example of how Solartech laminates can over come the most aggressive type of abrasion.

The pipeline in question was factory coated with an approved corrosion protection paint system and had to be dragged for 1 kilometer under a motorway and canal in Holland. However, when the dragging process began the project team quickly realized the potential damage to the factory applied coating system.

The Solartech laminate system was identified as a solution to the problem, not only in protecting the factory-applied coating, but also as a product that could be easily applied in situ on top of the existing paint system.
