US-based pipeline coating specialist Polyguard Products is pleased to announce the launch of its latest innovative surface protection solution, the RD-6® UVO liquid overcoat.
This is a single-component, low-volatile-organic-compound (VOC), UV-resistant, water-based coating that is highly resistant to the damaging effects of harmful UV light rays.
This new overcoat is used to protect Polyguard’s highly effective and popular RD-6® anti-corrosion coating from UV rays when it’s used for above-ground pipeline field joint girth welds, valves, fittings and FBE-coated pipes.
Polyguard conducted in-depth research and saw that direct exposure to sunlight could result in degradation of the RD-6 product.
The result was adding this new product to ensure maximum stability.
This is an environmentally friendly, moisture-resistant product that has excellent adhesion characteristics resulting in fast touch, drying and cure times.
Although designed for RD-6, the RD-6 UVO overcoat can be applied over multiple coating types such as FBE or other epoxies.
