Quantum have introduced composite flexible pipeline & cable markers to identify underground pipelines and other utilities quickly and cost effectively.
These composite markers can help reduce exposure to accidental dig-ins and service interruptions by quickly and clearly identifying buried pipelines, valves, cables and other underground utilities.
The unique fibreglass composite construction stands up to the toughest field conditions and the flexible pipeline markers can rebound to their original upright position after vehicle impacts, livestock contact and vandalism in virtually all weather conditions. The fire resistant characteristics of the material will withstand small grass fires and controlled ditch burns.
A typical installation takes less than one minute using a hand-held post driver even through the toughest soil. The markers are simply driven into the ground like a steel fence post.
INEOS Styrolution announces that it is planning to set up a new production site for its successful composite StyLight.
