Case Study - First successful UHMW-PE pile sleeve installation in the region
First Regional UHMW-PE Installation
We installed UHMW-PE sleeves on two piles in Dubai Marina last year - a first for the region. UHMW-PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals and abrasion, and has extremely low moisture absorption, making it the ideal material for use in marine environments.
The sleeves were heat-shrunk onto old corroded piles that were in need of replacement, in order to prolong their lifespan and provide a significantly better aesthetic appearance.
Almost 9 months on, the results are very promising. The sleeves prove to be more than satisfactory, clearly protecting the piles from wear and corrosion.
