• ARC_product_imageDesigned for fast and easy installation, Abrasion Resistant Coating™ (ARC™) consists of a tough fiberglass fabric and a unique abrasion resistant epoxy coating. ARC bonds to a wide variety of materials including metals, composites and concrete. It’s a cost effective way to protect vessels, structures piping and other assets from corrosion, sand erosion and UV exposure. ARC conforms easily to any contour and can be used to protect reducers, tees, elbows and other complex shapes. The system, which is especially effective at soil-to-air interfaces (transition zones), ships in pre-measured kits, containing everything you’ll need for installation.

    1. Surface Preparation 
    Remove all soft coatings and media blast the pipe to provide an anchor pattern (NACE- 3 minimum). Wipe the surface with a solvent such as Acetone, Toluene, or MEK.


    2. Apply Wear-Resistant Coating 
    Wearing protective gloves, mix equal parts of the coating. Apply the material to the pipe surface ensuring even coverage (approx. 30 mils).


    3. Apply ARC Wrap to the Pipe 
    Wrap the fiberglass fabric around the pipe tightly, using a cigar wrap method.


    4. Apply Additional Wear-Resistant Coating 
    Ensure that the fabric is completely wet out with the wear-resistant coating.
