Directional Drilling


Protection against pull-through forces.

Superior corrosion protection.

Gouge and abrasion resistance.

Layers of protection.

The DDX - Directional Drilling Kit is a high performance system designed to protect welded joints on PP, PE and FBE coated pipelines in directional drilling applications.

This system offers unmatched installation simplicity while delivering exceptional protection at the joints during and after the tough conditions associated with HDD activities.

Layers of Protection

  • Force-cured epoxy is applied directly to steel for maximum corrosion protection.
  • Primary sleeve composed of high shear strength adhesive and HDPE heat shrinkable backing provides both corrosion and mechanical protection across the joints.
  • The secondary sleeve provides additional mechanical protection to the leading edge of the primary sleeve during pull-through operations.

Gouge and Abrasion Resistance

  • Designed to mitigate the effect of forces associated with directional drilling.
  • Highly resistant to the effects of soil stresses and pipe movements.

Performance Meets Productivity

  • Low preheat temperatures and straightforward application steps reduce cycle times and improve productivity.
  • Simple and forgiving installation results in improved reliability and quality of every joint.
