Corrosion can occur between uncoated u-bolts and pipes due to metal contact. This corrosion and pitting can eventually develop into pinhole leaks. Metal contact can be completely eliminated by utilizing APS Pipe Support Pads and APS U-Bolt-Cote. (As shown to the left.) U-Bolt-Cote is excellent for use on plastic, FRP, or glass-lined pipe for shock absorption.
U-Bolt-Cote provides corrosion resistance and cathodic protection. All sizes are available. Galvanized long tangent u-bolts ranging in sizes through 20" are readily available. Larger sizes and other types of coating such as zinc, cadmium, stainless, Xylan (PTFE) are also available. Standard APS pipe support pads are die cut from Buna-N rubber. Pre-drilled thermoplastic rods (either round or half-round) can be provided.
