The patented Scar-Guard line of products is designed to protect weld joint and mainline coatings from the mechanical stresses and scarring associatied with horizontal direction drilling (HDD), boring and micro-tunneling of pipelines. Scar-Guard is a composite abrasion resistant overcoat comprised of fiberglass cloth and pre-impregnated flexible resin that is activated by water and cured within minutes. This sacrificial outer laminate system protects pre-approved anticorossion weld joint coatings and mainline coatings such as FBE, liquid epoxies, shrink sleeves and tape.
The Scar-Guard line of products minimizes the need for costly repairs after pull back and provides robust protection of the underlying pipeline coating.
The main application for Scar-Guard is for Horizontal Direction Drilling and boring, but Scar-Guard can also be used in other applications such as; Onshore/Offshore Pipelines, Abrasion Resistant Overcoat (ARO), Girth-Weld Joints, Mainline Coating Protection.
