Carboline Co. has introduced Polyclad 975, an advanced, 100% solids epoxy coating designed for corrosion protection of buried steel and ductile iron pipeline exteriors, girth welds or tie-ins.

“We are very excited about this technology, because it has excellent cathodic disbondment resistance, making it ideal for long-term protection needed for oil and gas pipelines,” said Mitch Connor, senior market manager for Carboline, a global manufacturer of high-performance coatings, linings and fireproofing products.

Applications and Performance

Polyclad 975 can be applied by plural airless or dual-cartridge spray, while the companion product Polyclad 975H is designed for hand application by brush or roller.

 Polyclad 975
Polyclad 975 is a 100% solids epoxy designed for corrosion protection of buried steel and ductile iron pipeline exteriors. 

The formulation is designed for fast setting to ensure quality control and quick return to service. The product is compatible with other pipe coatings, such as FBE, coal tar and tape systems.

Polyclad 975 is also designed to provide excellent compatibility with cathodic protection, according to Carboline, which says cathodic disbondment was tested at temperatures up to 176°F (80°C). Carboline says the system is easy to apply and suitable for field and shop applications.

Doug Moore, Carboline’s Vice President of Global Marketing, called Polyclad 975 “the latest technology in external corrosion protection for buried pipelines with fast curing, easy application and unparalleled performance features.”
 
St. Louis-based Carboline has been a global manufacturer and supplier of high-performance coatings for the industrial, commercial and architectural industries since 1947.
