Stop It® BoreShield™ ARO I
STOP IT® BoreShield™ ARO I System is a field-applied abrasion resistant outerwrap (ARO) consisting of a unique, heavy duty fiberglass reinforcement and water-activated urethane resin, designed for impact and abrasion resistance in weld seam, small pipeline, and riser applications.
The STOP IT® BoreShield™ ARO I System provides protection from external wear, abrasion, and impact events. The composite system includes a custom weave, heavy fiberglass tape, pre-coated with a toughened, water-activated urethane resin. The high bond strength provides high durability and resistance to shear if pipe is to be pulled. Installation entails only wrapping the composite around the area in need of protection and subsequent compression banding. The STOP IT® BoreShield™ ARO I System can be applied underwater without any influence on final material properties or cure rate.
