Pile Protection - Series 100 Splash Zone Corrosion Protection

The Smart Band Secured Series 100 Style Pile Protection System is the perfect solution for most Pile Protection Projects. Once the Petrolatum Tape and paste have been applied the HDPE Jacket can be very quickly installed as illustrated by the videos below. A banded Jacket offers many advantages: no expensive hand tools are required for installation, no pre-survey is required, the system is 100% non-metallic and will not interfere with other existing corrosion protection systems. HCL work in partnership with many Petrolatum Tape manufacturers around the world to provide the clients with the best solution
