It is designed to protect field joint and mainline coatings from the mechanical stresses and scarring associated with horizontal directional drilling (HDD), thrust boring, direct pipe and micro-tunneling installation of pipelines.

Scar-Guard® functions as a sacrificial outer laminate system to protect pre-approved anti-corrosion field joint and mainline coatings such as Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE), liquid epoxies, shrink sleeves, and tapes. Using Scar-Guard® provides robust protection of the underlying pipeline coating.


  • Excellent abrasion resistance for protecting coated pipes subjected to trenchless pipeline installation
  • Prevents gouging and coating damage
  • High impact resistance
  • Easily installed over field and factory applied coatings


  • Superior mechanical protection
  • Non-shielding
  • Eliminates the need to re-pull pipe
  • Prevents gouging and coatingdamage
  • Ensures future pipeline integrity
  • Prevents future external corrosion
  • No environmental hazards
