DEPROTEC®-GFK System

Mechanically highly resistant corrosion prevention system for pipelines, consisting of a BUTYLEN anti-corrosion coating and the DEPROTEC®-GFK protective casing, when laying in trenchless pipeline installations, such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) or pipe-plough methods.

  • For temperatures up to +80° C (+176°F)
  • Reliable corrosion prevention.
  • Abrasion-resistant and impact-resistant.
  • Especially suitable for trenchless pipe laying.
  • The DEPROTEC®-GFK system is a reliable corrosion prevention system for pipeline structures that are subject to special mechanical stresses during installation or operation.
  • The DEPROTEC®-GFK system consists of a BUTYLEN anti-corrosion coating as well as the DEPROTEC®-GFK protective casing (one-component, light-curing vinyl ester resin, fleece and glass fabric).
  • Typical applications include field joint coating of welding seams in trenchless pipeline installations, e.g. horizontal directional drilling (HDD) or pipe-plough methods, and if the pipeline cannot be bedded in sand.

Industries and solutions

The DEPROTEC®-GFK system is ideal for the anti-corrosive coating of welds on pipes and pipelines, which are laid in trenchless installations by horizontal directional drilling (HDD) or pipe-plough methods. The well-balanced property profile, the fast curing time as well as the high abrasion and shear resistance and the simple processing of the DEPROTEC®-GFK protective casing have proven to be excellent in many construction projects. The unique formula of the BUTYLEN corrosion prevention tape system guarantees durability under high corrosive loads.
