There is a bigger version presentation from MOGSIL available (I have got that but it is work related and I cannot put it up), but for whatever reason they do not have a Company website. They are reluctant to mention what polyamide cured epoxy that one is, I read about a Devchem 257 of International PC being used for such a job, in situ rehabilitation of internal pipe coatings, but I cannot say that is the product(s) they have in mind. The only downside is that the operation(s) can be very time consuming and expensive, but the quality of the finish would be very good. Best regards, Bogdan Dana

Dear Bart De Cremer, Thanks for your Inquiry. I will get back to you for the coating used in this job and other jobs, since they have more than one qualified coating system that can be used; depends on the pipeline product’s type & parameters. Kind Regards, Baker.
