Loose polyethylene sleeving is used as the principle means of providing external protection for ductile iron pipelines in aggressive soils, both in Australia and overseas. The technique was developed in the United States of America in the 1950’s and has been used in Australia since 1966.

POLYBOSS performance exceeds AS3680 requirements to maximise performance of all system elements.

Application in accordance with AS3681 assures consistent optimum configuration Training, assessment, accreditation and feedback provided by the CENTURY PLUS® Program for pipe layers maximises correctness of installations.

Fitness for purpose and assurance of performance with PIQS (Pipeline Installation Quality System) QA system of installation

Soil resistivity assessment technique can be used in assessing the need for corrosion protection

Proven, reliable protection system provides confidence in installations with over 30,000km applied in the last 50 years across Australia

Most cost effective means of protection. With extensive experiences here and overseas, it is expected that the effective service life of these systems will exceed 100 years.
