Pipeline Protection

Pipeline protection is provided by 3M™ High Strength Filament Reinforced Tapes.  They are frequently used during the manufacture of flexible flowlines, risers and umbilicals to prevent the phenomenon called “bird caging”. The tapes are spirally wound around the pipes immediately after the armouring process to prevent the steel bands or wires from expanding outwards.

Bird caging is a costly manufacturing problem, requiring the production line to be shut down while the affected area is cut out.
