HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattresses are one of the best pipeline protection methods in the industry.
Permanent and custom-made, a HYDROTEX pipeline cover is the most effective countermeasure against corrosion for pipelines underwater and above ground.
Used in conjunction with cathodic protection, HYDROTEX can be installed over, under, and around a pipeline to provide superior erosion protection and prevent soil movement under the pipeline.
How is HYDROTEX used for pipeline protection?
Like bridges and piers, pipelines are subject to scour and erosion, which can significantly reduce the longevity of the structure. Such damage can lead to catastrophic failure, costing millions in repair costs.
The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete
Use HYDROTEX fabric formworks to cast a permanent concrete mattress that will protect the pipeline bed from erosion. With HYDROTEX, you can also cast a permanent concrete structure that will support freespan pipelines, preventing critical failure.

HYDROTEX: The Best Oil Pipeline Protection Product
Oil and gas pipelines must be protected from corrosion and damage with a proper armoring system, ensuring the longevity of the pipe. HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete is a cost-effective way to cover pipelines, fortifying them and ensuring the ground around them experiences minimal erosion during their lifetime.
Pipeline protection is typically needed for:
Offshore Pipeline Cover Protection
Don’t leave an underwater pipeline to the mercy of the ocean’s elements.
The metal is subject to scour and corrosion, which could lead to a failure of the pipeline system. HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattresses can be installed over and around the pipeline to provide much needed protection against scour.
