Dirax - Welded joint heat shrink sleeve for directional drilling. A high performance fiberglass reinforced sleeve specifically designed for girth weld corrosion protection.
The sleeve is used for corrosion protection of girth welds on coated pipes used for horizontal or directional drilling.
Features & Benefits:
Highly resistant to shear and peel forces induced by soil and thermal movements
The DIRAX is tough!
DIRAX offers abrasion and wear resistance at pull-through comparable to mill coatings
Provides a monolithic coating system.
Wear cone protects leading edge of sleeve against pull-through forces
Provides additional strength and security---increases reliability.
Sleeve applied over wet epoxy---there are no curing or waiting times / formation of strong mechanical & chemical bonds
Allows fast application---saves time! Ensures high performance!
Superior cathodic disbondment and hot water immersion resistance
Offers the optimum barrier protection against corrosion.
Pre-attached closure patch
Allows fast and easy application.
Low preheat requirements
Makes installation faster and saves time.
