Corrosion protection in offshore and onshore applications with a variety of products.
Corrosion Protection Heat-Shrinkable Sleeves in Any Location You Require
For more than 35 years, Shawcor has been a leading developer and manufacturer of specialty pipeline coatings for the sealing and corrosion protection of pipeline joints and other substrates. We can provide our heat-shrinkable sleeve systems offshore on pipelaying vessels or onshore on spoolbases and in any other locations needed.
Our high-performance products are manufactured to the highest quality standards
Our products, available in a number of configurations to accommodate any specific project requirements, include:
Hotmelt Heat Shrink
Global Transmission Sleeve, or GTS™, refers to a series of high-performance field-applied coating systems that provide superior corrosion protection for buried exposed and offshore pipelines.
Shawcor also provides a range of hybrid GTS-type systems that offer a more forgiving application procedure, with a more “fit for purpose” performance level that may be suitable for your application.
Hybrid Heat Shrink
We offer a range of polypropylene-based hybrid GTS™ systems that combine Canusa-CPS patented polypropylene backing technology for advanced mechanical protection with our more forgiving adhesive technology.
The design delivers outstanding resistance to external mechanical loads, while allowing for a very simplified and forgiving installation procedure for 3LPE and 3LPP coated pipelines operating at temperatures up to 100°C (212°F).
Mastic Heat Shrink
The K-Series products are mastic-based heat-shrinkable systems, which have been designed for fast and flexible installations.
The product range offers systems for offshore and onshore applications, with a range of operating temperatures.
The XCS™ system is designed for use in extreme conditions, including cold weather applications and rehabilitation of pipeline coatings.
This system is designed for situations where pre-heating of the substrate is not possible.
DDX™ and TBK™ systems were specifically designed to protect welded joints on PP, PE and FBE coated pipelines in directional drilling applications.
Provide superior corrosion protection at pipeline weld joints.
The tubular heat-shrinkable products offer a fast installation method for flexible application requirements.
The products are used extensively in alternative construction applications, including on bridges and street lamp posts.
Aqua-Shield™ is a family of heat-shrinkable sleeve products that have been specifically designed for corrosion protection of water pipelines.
Available in various configurations which effectively bonds to metallic substrates and common pipeline coatings.
Heat-Shrinkable Sleeves for Protection of Pre-Insulated Pipe Joints
SuperSeal™ and UltraSeal™ sleeves have been specifically designed for long-term sealing of joints on pre-insulated pipes. Advanced-grade polyethylene backing material, combined with function-specific adhesive technology, ensures superior barrier against water ingress and exceptional protection from the soil stresses associated with pre-insulated pipelines.
The SuperSeal™ system features include:
- Compliance with the stringent requirements of EN 489 standard
- Proven and extensive track record of sealing district heating joints over the past 25 years
- Exceptional performance to value ratio
The UltraSeal™ system features include:
- Surpasses the requirements of EN 489 standard
- Strongest bond to substrate and highest shear strength in class across the entire width of sleeve
- Lowest installation temperature of any comparable system ensures forgiving installation
