Chemical transport – the buried pipe challenges

Buried pipe PICDutch multinational company AkzoNobel, which creates paints and performance coatings for both industry and consumers worldwide, has unveiled a range of products to address various issues in chemical transportation

As the production of chemicals moves from being located near the end customer to nearer to the source of the raw materials, the transportation of chemicals markets is growing. Owners and customers want to ensure that the chemicals are moved safely and efficiently to the end customer with minimal risk of environmental pollution in transit.

One of the big parts of chemical transport is buried pipelines. This brings on unique challenges ranging from the type of soil or environment it will be buried in, what type of cargo will be transported as well as the climate that the pipelines will be exposed to. Selecting the correct coating can directly determine the lifespan and reduction of risks of the installed pipeline. AkzoNobel offers a wide range of products for any scenario.

By utilising a unique technology of high-performance epoxy formulation, the Enviroline range delivers the very best in chemical, high temperature, abrasion, impact, and cathodic disbondment (CP) resistance and is backed by extensive laboratory testing and a proven track record of successful applications. With an understanding that poor application can be just as detrimental to the best corrosion protection plans as inferior products, we also designed our Enviroline coatings to minimise application problems.

Enviroline can be applied in a single, thick-film coat which significantly reduces overall application cost as well as inter-coat adhesion problems common with multiple coat systems and with a superfast cure of only hours, not days, your tank or pipe can be returned to service quickly.

Rich in history and experience, AkzoNobel’s linings product range is world-renowned for its quality and reliability. With over 200 years of combined history, our linings products; Ceilcote®, Enviroline® and Interline® possess an extensive track record in corrosion protection. Our complete range of performance linings are proven to provide long-term asset protection, reduce process downtime, and protect against the most aggressive industrial cargoes at a wide range of temperatures.
