The client selected HCL due to the following reasons;
The HCL Pile Protection System is comprised of 6 simple components, Petrolatum Paste, Petrolatum Tape, 2mm HDPE Outer Armour & Edging Strip (to protect the seal) and 19mm or 32mm Smart Band Hybrid system (Width dependant on Pile Diameter) made from POM material.
