October 10, 2013

Carboline Company, one of the leading global manufacturers of high performance coatings, linings and fireproofing products, has launched Polyclad ARO, an advanced high performance coating formulated to protect Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) coated buried steel pipe from damage during horizontal directional drilling installations. Polyclad ARO is specially designed for the protection of FBE or epoxy coated pipeline from gouge and mechanical damage during directional drilling or slip bore installations. Polyclad ARO is applied directly over coated pipe as an abrasion resistant overlay (ARO) and provides superior protection in rocky, rough and mountainous environments. It absorbs the destructive energy and minimizes coating damage.
