Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to introduce the latest addition to its high temperature, corrosion resistant internal pipe coatings with the release of Nap-Gard® 7-0016, a thermosetting epoxy powder that is designed to provide excellent chemical resistance in temperatures up to 150°C (302°F).
“Axalta is excited to bring another innovative product to its internal pipe coating line,” said Meghan Hodge, Axalta Global Product Marketing Manager, Functional Coatings. “Nap-Gard 7-0016 is a good option for customers who need corrosion protection in severe downhole environments.”
The environments explored by oil and gas operators today have higher temperatures and concentrations of hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide and other gas contaminants. These conditions require the use of costly metal chrome alloys to avoid pipeline corrosion and failure. Axalta’s new generation of high temperature coatings offer a low cost alternative to protect the internal diameter of the world’s pipelines.
Axalta’s Nap-Gard collection of powder coatings are used on external and internal oil, gas and water pipelines with single, dual, and multilayer application options. Nap-Gard also provides corrosion protection solutions that can be used to coat valves, fittings and rebar. Axalta’s functional coatings offer innovative solutions for today’s epoxy-based coating applications and are designed to provide superior corrosion protection for products that are used in the most demanding environments.
