Below-grade pipe coating systems are subject to accelerated deterioration and potential section loss of the pipe wall if the coating system is not properly maintained. When coating damage is indicated by above-ground surveys, the affected pipeline sections must be excavated and repaired. This webinar will discuss the methods and materials used to repair pipeline coating systems such as asphalt enamel, fusion-bonded epoxy, liquid-applied epoxy, polyethylene tape, and extruded, multi-layer polyethylene and polypropylene. The webinar will also describe the field inspection techniques used to evaluate the condition of coatings exposed during routine pipeline maintenance operations.
