Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) recently announced its latest addition to its internal pipe coatings line.

Known as Nap-Gard 7-0016, the coating is said to protect against corrosion in high-temperature environments, and is produced as a thermosetting epoxy powder. The coating is designed to also be chemical resistant in temperatures up to 150 degrees Celsius (302 degrees Fahrenheit).

“Nap-Gard 7-0016 is a good option for customers who need corrosion protection in severe downhole environments,” said Meghan Hodge, Axalta’s global product marketing manager for functional coatings.


Known as Nap-Gard 7-0016, the coating is both high-temperature and corrosion-resistant and is produced as a thermosetting epoxy powder. 

Oil and gas operators today explore environments that have both higher temperatures and concentrations of hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide and other gas contaminants. Axalta presents its new epoxy as an alternative to metal chrome alloys in avoiding pipeline corrosion and failure.

The Nap-Gard powder coating line is used on both external and internal oil, gas and water pipelines with single, dual and multi-layer application options. The coating also provides protection against corrosion, which can be applied to fittings, valves and rebar.
