Axalta Coating Systems introduces two new high-temperature, corrosion-resistant internal pipe coatings to its Nap-Gard Functional Coatings collection. The new Nap-Gard 7-0017HT and 7-0017VHT Black Beauty FBE products are thermosetting epoxy powders designed to provide chemical resistance when operating in temperatures up to 392°F (200°C).
According to the company, corrosion caused by carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S), often found in sour crude oil, is a major challenge for oil and gas industry. Axalta’s introduction of these high glass transition (Tg) temperature internal pipe coatings are designed to combat this problem. When properly applied with Nap-Gard 7-1808 primer, Nap-Gard 7-0017HT and 7-0017VHT can offer corrosion protection against high levels of H2S and CO2, as well as methane (CH4), even at high temperatures and pressures.
The Nap-Gard collection of powder coatings is used on external and internal oil, gas and water pipelines with single, dual, and multi-layer application options. Nap-Gard also provides corrosion protection solutions used to coat valves, fittings and rebar.
