XCS is designed to protect live, fl owing pipelines where pre-heating of the substrate is not possible. XCS is also designed for cold weather application, as well as custom application and usage. These sleeves are supplied with a black backing that is stabilized against ultra-violet degradation.
• XCS is made from materials that provide high electrical resistivity, resistance to corrosive environments, low water absorption, low moisture permeability and an effective bond to both the steel surface and to common pipeline coatings.
• When the sleeve is heated, the adhesive is transformed into an amorphous, low viscosity liquid, which has excellent bonding to the substrates.
Flexible & Reliable Installation
• XCS sleeves are available in widths up to 36” (900mm) and can be applied in overlapping sleeve segments along the pipe length, or as a standard field joint coating.
• XCS is available as one-piece wraparound sleeves or as a bulk roll with a separate closure for greater flexibility.
