The benefits of Pipe Coatings go beyond aesthetic appeal. They offer corrosion protection, improved hydraulic efficiency, and increased lifespan. These coatings are also extremely durable. A good choice for internal pipelines, 100% solids formulations have no solvents or water to evaporate. They are designed for long-term corrosion protection and can withstand high temperatures and UV radiation. These coatings are also environmentally friendly. And because they are 100 percent solid, they are considered an excellent choice for use in sub-sea environments.
Today's pipelines have increased in size and complexity. They have become increasingly complicated. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) have introduced regulations for corrosion protection in pipelines. International organizations like the International Organization for Standardization have developed guidelines for friction-reduction coatings. In the past, low-solid epoxies were the most commonly used formulations for flow coatings. However, VOC regulations have made it difficult to use these products for internal pipelines. Recently, some companies have experimented with new formulas for pipelines.
