Superior wear protection for longer pipeline life

Outlasts unprotected steel pipe and metallic pipe linings

Slurries in the Canadian oil sands contain an average of 46% solids. Under these highly abrasive conditions, you need a durable pipeline system to avoid frequent rotation and replacement. Iracore offers superior protection against erosion and corrosion thanks to our advanced elastomeric lining material. The Iracore compound was developed specifically to provide optimal wear resistance for slurry transport and tailings disposal in the Athabasca oil sands.
