Scar Guard


scar guard


The Scar Guard line of products is patented and designed to protect field joint coatings from the abrasion stresses and scarring of directional drilling, HDD and boring. Scar Guard creates an abrasion resistant, sacrificial outer laminate which protects pre-approved field joint coatings such as epoxies, shrink sleeves, and cold or hot applied tapes. Controlled set times, packaging and extreme conformability provide for fast installations in any project environment. The Scar Guard line of products minimize the need for costly spot repairs after a pull back and provide long-term protection of underlying field joint coatings.

Typical Applications

-Horizontal directional drilling and boring

-Coating protection



-Controlled set time

-Simple, easy to install


-Consistency of application, joint after joint

-Smooth profile reduces damage during pull thru

-No UV light or heating required


Polyurethane Benefits

-Pre-impregnated, no field mixing or saturation

-Water activated


Epoxy Benefits

-Increased bond strength and hardness allows for more adverse soil conditions

-Extended working time for hot climates

-Epoxy can act as primary corrosion coating
