Nearly two years after purchasing its pipeline corrosion protection technologies, Berry Plastics is ready to begin  distributing Stopaq products in the United States.

Berry, based in Evansville, IN, announced in June 2012 that its Corrosion Protection Group had completed the acquisition of Frans Nooren Beheer B.V. companies, which include Stopaq.

Stopaq’s products include Wrappingband CZH and Outerwrap PVC, which provide corrosion protection for pipelines.

Earlier this month, Midsun Specialty Products Inc. of Berlin, CT, announced that it had entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Seal for Life Industries, a newly restructured division of Berry Plastics, to bring the Stopaq line to the northeastern U.S.

Corrosion Prevention Portfolio

Stopaq's corrosion prevention technology was invented in the Netherlands, and has been used for more than 20 years on pipelines and other infrastructure across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Stopaq supplies a wide range of green visco-elastic coatings and sealants to protect assets from corrosion and water ingress. Its products are produced in the Netherlands and Saudi Arabia. Applications for the systems include onshore and offshore, field- and factory-applied, in extreme environments subsea and above ground.

Last fall, Stopaq won a long-running legal effort to block Canusa Systems Ltd. from bringing its corrosion-protection Wrapid Bond product to the German market already occupied by Stopaq's anti-corrosion product Wrappingband.

'Synergy'

Midsun Specialty Products is the leading manufacturer of self-fusing silicone tape in the retail and commercial markets. Its portfolio includes self-fusing MSP Industrial Wrap for a variety of applications.

MSP

MSP, maker of self-fusing silicone tape, will distribute Stopaq's products in the U.S. northeast.

MSP says the addition of the Stopaq line will enhance its current product lines.

“The synergy between Stopaq and MSP mirrors our vision of vertical growth and innovation,” said Mark Hatje, CEO of MSP.

MSP’s territory includes the U.S. northeast, from Maryland to Maine. The company serves the oil and gas pipeline, refinery, and water and wastewater markets
