• Pipe_Sock___Main

    The Pipe Sock™ system is a fiber-reinforced polymer designed to eliminate crevice corrosion problems caused by direct metal-to-metal contact. It consists of a pre-formed, size specific fiberglass wear pad and a specially formulated adhesive system that combines to form a resilient crevice corrosion solution. Additionally, it can withstand temperatures up to 250° F and provide complete fit-up integrity with the pipe, eliminating moisture penetration and condensation cavities.
