ProTek Composite Wear Pads

APP’s ProTek Composite Wear Pads are designed to prevent metal-to-metal contact in steel piping systems.

APP’s ProTek Composite Wear Pads are in stock and designed to prevent metal-to-metal contact in piping systems. They effectively isolate the pipe from contact with I-Beams, guides or concrete supports. These areas are the most susceptible to corrosion and cost millions to repair and maintain. Our wear pads are the most cost effective solution to piping system corrosion.

Wear Pad Installation (pdf)
The wear pad can be installed before or after paint/coating is applied, during fabrication or in the field.
Wear Pad Manufacturing
The wear pad is manufactured to the exact outer diameter of the pipe for a precise fit and seal. The inside is pre-roughened ID to NACE 1 coating specification to provide anchor profile for epoxy.
Epoxy Adhesive (EX-100)
The epoxy system has 2,500 psi of shear strength and ensures an impermeable seal for the lifetime of the pipe. MSDS (pdf)
