New Product Announcement: Epoxy Pipeline Coatings


Anticorrosion coatings manufacturer Denso Group Germany recently introduced its epoxy coatings brand, Fortide, for pipeline construction.

According to the company’s release, the Fortide variants are designed for moist surfaces or as internal coatings for tanks or pipelines and have achieved compliance with the international standard, ISO 21809-3. 

Denso states that Fortide can be used to rehabilitate pipelines either as a whole pipe coating or for welded joints and complex angles. The products are reportedly defined by coating hardness and indentation strength.

As a brush or spray coating, Fortide products can be applied to the surface in one step and reportedly contains no volatile solvents or isocyanates.

"Epoxy coatings are highly tensile, chemically resistant, fast curing and can provde early commissioning of the pipeline. In addition to its versatile applicability, Fortide meets our demands for simplicity, economy and durability and guarantees what our customers especially appreciate about DENSO: the proven quality Made in Germany", said Thomas Kaiser, Managing Director of Denso Group Germany.

Fortide reportedly offers four solutions, including:

  • Fortide-HT (High Temperature) - Corrosion protection of pipelines at maximum operating temperatures of up to +150 degrees Celsius. For pipes transporting particularly hot media or exposed to very high ambient temperatures.
  • Fortide-ST (Standard Temperature) - Corrosion protection for pipelines at operating temperatures up to +95 C.
  • Fortide-TL (Tank Lining) - Internal coating for tanks and pipelines with exceptional chemical and water resistance, e.g. against crude oil, various hydrocarbons, acids, lyes and waste water.
  • Fortide-WS (Wet Surface) - Specifically for use on wet surfaces, which are often a challenge, for example, when rehabilitating old coatings during pipeline operation.

"Along with Fortide, we cover all relevant corrosion protection systems with Denso Petrolatum tapes, Densolen PE/Butyl tapes, Densolid Polyurethane coatings, Dekotec Heat shrinkable sleeves and the universally applicable Sealid All-in-1, among others. This scope of our product portfolio for passive corrosion protection of pipes and pipelines is unique in the market. We are proud of this," stated Max Wedekind, Managing Director of Denso Group Germany.
