Radolid® Protection Caps
Corrosion occurs due to metal contact between the uncoated u-bolts and pipe.
The excessive corrosion and pitting can eventually develop into pinhole leaks.
This interaction can be completely eliminated by utilizing an APS Pipe Support
Pad and APS U-Bolt-Cote. (As shown to the left.) U-Bolt-Cote is excellent for
use on plastic, FRP or glass-lined pipe for shock absorption.
The U-Bolt-Cote is a seamless, vulcanized, polyolefin material that can be applied
to all types of U-Bolts. It is excellent for eliminating corrosion problems on
piping in refineries, chemical plants, paper mills, offshore platforms, rigs and
the shipping industry. The U-Bolt-Cote will also help to reduce vibration and
U-Bolt-Cote provides corrosion resistance and cathodic protection. All sizes
available. Galvanized long tangent u-bolts ranging in sizes through 500mm are stock
items. Larger sizes and other types of coating such as zinc, cadmium, stainless,
Xylan (PTFE) are also available. Standard APS pipe support pads are die cut out
of Buna-N rubber. Pre-drilled thermoplastic rods (either round or half-round) can
VERSATILITY - With a wide variety of sizes available, U-Bolt-Cote can
be applied to all makes and sizes
PROTECTION - A rugged and durable covering, eliminating metal to metal
RELIABILITY - U-Bolt-Cote provides high abrasive and corrosive resistance
in a continuous sheath,
eliminating fraying and unraveling. Virtually
unaffected by heat, ultra violet rays, vibration, electrolysis,
or any other rigors conducive to an industrial and marine environment.
EASE OF INSTALLATION - The U-Bolt size has been considered to accommodate
thickness assuring a good fit over the pipe.
