Modular protection with PALIMEX®-880/-855

Leverkusen, 7th November 2018 – DEKOTEC GmbH, leading manufacturer of corrosion prevention systems for welded joints, pipe rehabilitation and pipe coatings, expands its comprehensive product range with new PALIMEX® protective tapes for pipes and station construction.

The new co-extruded PALIMEX® tapes – which are ideal for use on buried steel and cast iron pipes – provide long-lasting, high-strength protection, whether they are used individually or combined as a tape system. The protective tapes reliably absorb the high mechanical loads that occur in these applications.

The flexible modular structure of the tapes means that varying tape dimension and thickness can be combined as needed. PALIMEX® tapes provide excellent electrical insulation for a wide range of building projects: On straight pipe sections, the tapes are easy and cost-effective to apply, and on components with different geometries – such as pipe bends and moulded parts – they are flexible and adhere perfectly to the pipe.

With this new addition to its range, DEKOTEC is offering a permanent protection solution for pipes designed for temperatures of up to 85 degrees Celsius. Applied directly to the pipe surface requiring protection, PALIMEX®-880 forms a strong and impact-resistant pipe coating. The UV-resistant PALIMEX®-855 is diffusion-resistant against external factors such as water vapour and oxygen. The tapes are resistant to corrosive media, either on their own or as part of a system solution comprised of both types of tape.


For almost a century, DEKOTEC GmbH has built its reputation on high-quality and forward-thinking solutions for sealing technology and corrosion prevention. DEKOTEC products reliably protect road construction, buildings, pipelines and station construction long-term. The company has developed into an international group of companies, with branches in six European countries and sales partners in over 100 countries worldwide. The group is market leader in key Central European markets and is intensifying its dynamic growth in Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
