ProTek Rod

APP’s non-metallic rod is a durable thermoplastic pipe support that inhibits corrosion cell formation between a metallic pipe and its metallic support.

APP’s ProTek Rods serve as a barrier between a metallic pipe and the metallic support. The ProTek Rod is made out of a durable thermoplastic material. It effectively prevents pipe corrosion by inhibiting a corrosion cell from forming, thus prolonging the life of your piping system.
