Polyguard RD-6 is a non-shielding coating. This means that if the RD-6 coating ever becomes disbonded, the pipeline beneath is still protected because cathodic protection currents will be able to reach the disbonded area. Once the current reaches the disbonded area it will raise the pH of the water underneath it to 9 or higher – a level too high to support corrosion. Additionally, the RD-6’s geotextile fabric backing does not shield cathodic protection currents.
