Denso North America has announced a new, innovative pipe wrap product that is designed withstand abrasion.
The Denso Bore-Wrap is an Abrasion Resistant Outerwrap (ARO) that has outstanding performance against impact, gouge, abrasion and fracture. The product creates a superior sacrificial outer laminate layer that protects both pre-approved field joint coatings and mainline coatings, such as liquid epoxy coatings, 3LPE, 3LPP and FBE coatings, from damage during pipeline installation, in difficult terrain or by means of trenchless installation methods, such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) or boring.
Denso Bore-Wrap is easily applied in the field. There is no mixing required. It is simply wrapped over the existing pipeline coating and cured with water. Due to its flexibility and exceptional level of mechanical protection, Bore-Wrap minimizes the need for costly spot repairs or re-pulling pipe from damage.
Denso North America Inc. is a subsidiary of Winn & Coales International, a leading manufacturer of anti-corrosion coatings that include Protal liquid epoxies, Denso petrolatum tapes, mastics, primers, bitumen tapes, butyl tapes, hot applied tapes, Archco tank linings/coatings and a full line of marine pile protection/rehabilitation systems.
Winn & Coales was originally established as a business in London, England, in 1883 and the first petrolatum tape manufactured in the UK was Denso tape, manufactured under license by Winn & Coales (Denso) Limited. Denso tape was developed over 90 years ago for the “Long Life Protection” of buried steel pipelines against corrosion.
