DEPROTEC®-GFK

High mechanical stress-resistant, light-curing GRP protective casing for trenchless pipeline installations, e.g. when laying by pipe driving or pipe ramming.

  • For temperatures up to +80°C (+176°F).
  • One-component - simple application.
  • Abrasion-resistant and impact-resistant.
  • Especially suitable for trenchless pipe laying and installation.
  • DEPROTEC®-GFK is a protective system for pipeline constructions that are subject to high levels of mechanical stress during installation or operation.
  • It consists of a one-component, light-curing vinyl ester resin, a nonwoven and a glass fiber fabric.
  • Typical applications include field joint coating of welding seams in trenchless pipeline installations, e.g. using pipe ramming or driving methods, and if the pipeline cannot be bedded in sand.

Industries and solutions

DEPROTEC®-GFK is excellently suited for the coating of welds on pipes and pipelines, which are laid in a trenchless installation by ramming or pressing. The balanced property profile, the fast curing time as well as the high abrasion and shear resistance and the simple processing have proven to be excellent in many construction projects.
