Pipeline Powders Designed for H2S Corrosion
Coatings manufacturer Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) has introduced two new products to its Nap-Gard line of pipeline coatings.
Nap-Gard 7-0017HT and 7-0017VHT FBE Black Beauty are thermosetting epoxy powders that Axalta says are designed to provide chemical resistance at temperatures up to 392 degrees Fahrenheit. The internal pipeline coatings are designed to fight corrosion caused by carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfate, often found in sour crude oil.
Both new powders diiffer from the already-existing Nap-Gard 7-0017 product in that they are capable of withstanding higher temperatures.
In addition to internal FBE coatings, Axalta’s Nap-Gard line of products also includes external pipe coatings, rebar coatings, valve coatings and girth weld coating and FBE repair materials.
