Advanced heat shrinkable sleeve for protection of pre-insulated pipe joints

UltraSeal™ represents the latest and most advanced in heat shrinkable sleeve technology for long term sealing and protection of insulated pipeline joints.

UltraSeal™ provides exceptional protection from the soil stresses associated with Pre-Insulated Pipes while also delivering a superior barrier to water ingress. The technological advances incorporated into this product result in a very forgiving installation procedure offering the lowest installation temperature of any comparable system.

Fast, Forgiving and Robust Installation

  • The revolutionary UltraSeal™ adhesive technology results in the lowest installation temperature of any comparable system
  • Simple and forgiving installation procedure offers unrivalled assurance that each and every joint will be protected in the same way

Best in class, end-to-end performance

  • UltraSeal™ adhesive offers the strongest bond to the substrate and the highest shear strength in its class, across a range of pertinent temperatures
  • UltraSeal™’s fully integrated design delivers the highest level of end to end functional performance

Proven and reliable joint protection

  • Cross-linked, high density polyethylene outer layer provides superior mechanical strength required in high soil stress applications
  • Maximum sealing and mechanical protection of the joints is ensured by utilizing the ultra-high performance adhesive across the entire width of the sleeve
  • UltraSeal™ meets and exceeds the requirements of the EN 489:2009 standard

Flexible Product Options Maximize Productivity

  • Conveniently available in bulk rolls or pre-cut sleeve configurations
