Major oil and gas companies around the world have selected Scotchkote coatings to be their primary corrosion defense for protecting their pipeline investment. Scotchkote fusion bonded epoxy coating is tough. Durable. Field-proven. It's more than just a superior pipe coating - it's a vital element in the gas and oil pipeline network.
Scotchkote fusion bonded epoxy coating has proven so reliable, in fact, that more than 62,000 miles (100,000 km) of pipe treated with Scotchkote coating has been installed throughout the world. Typical pipeline applications include internal and external coatings for natural gas, petroleum, water and sewage, as well as pipe systems for refineries, petrochemical plants, power plants and paper mills.
Worry-Free Service From Day One:
From the moment a pipe is coated with our Scotchkote™ fusion bonded epoxy coating and installed in the ground or in the sea, maximum corrosion protection is assured. The unique chemical characteristics of our coating are carefully engineered for optimum protection of metal - even in the harshest environments: saltwater, wastewater, petrochemicals and corrosive gases. Scotchkote fusion bonded epoxy coating protects against soil stress, bacteria and fungus attack, soil acids, alkalis - all the corrosive elements associated with underground or underwater use. The coating's excellent physical properties minimize damage during transit, installation and operation. It requires very low levels of cathodic protection, even after extended periods of time.
