Demilec, one of North America’s largest manufacturers of spray foam insulation and polyurea products, has introduced two new products, Geolok and MaxGuard SLAM 250, to address common issues seen during pipeline construction and containment, making the processes faster, safer and more durable.
Geolok, a polyurethane spray foam, helps field workers create pipe pillows, trench breakers and rock shields during pipeline construction. Geolok eliminates the common practice of sandbag laying, which poses various hazards to workers, as well as reduces the number of workers needed from as many as 10 to only two: one to operate the spray gun and another managing the back of the rig. The foam sprays continuously without combustion, preserves the integrity of pipelines and has a quick and extremely durable application process.
MaxGuard SLAM 250, an elastomeric spray coating, is often used for secondary containment, a major part of any oil and gas drilling site. The two-component, fast-set coating results in a very durable lining that can be used to make in-ground or above-ground constructed ponds. Other uses include tank and pipe protection, concrete and metal rehabilitation projects and abrasion resistance. MaxGuard SLAM 250 has no VOC emissions and is impact resistant.
