Solmax introduces RockArmour geomembrane for oil and gas pipeline protection

June 1st, 2019 / By: / News

Solmax has partnered with Rock Armour LLC to introduce an innovative rockshield pipeline protection offering to the oil and gas industry. RockArmour is a conductive geomembrane material designed to shield pipelines from rock impact damage during backfilling and problems caused by land movement after pipeline installation. RockArmour is made of a perforated, conductive low-density polyethylene geomembrane that exceeds the industry standards in impact resistance and tear strength. The core layer provides the impact and tear strength, while the inner layer is textured and conductive. The perforation allows for cathodic protection current to protect against damage on the coated pipe surface. “With RockArmour, contractors may save as much as 75% in labor costs and maintain or exceed the run rate required to stay ahead in the field, essentially giving contractors more miles for less,” said Mathieu Cornellier, vice president of technical services and business development at Solmax.
