Today, the working environments of oil and gas operators have higher temperatures and concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and other gas contaminants. These conditions demand the use of expensive metal chrome alloys to prevent pipeline corrosion and failure. Axalta’s new generation of high-temperature coatings deliver an economical alternative to protect the internal diameter of pipelines around the world.
Axalta’s Nap-Gard collection of powder coatings are used on internal and external gas, oil and water pipelines with single, dual and multi-layer application possibilities. Nap-Gard also offers corrosion protection solutions that can be used to fittings, coat valves, and rebar. Axalta’s functional coatings provide advanced solutions for current epoxy-based coating applications and are designed to deliver excellent corrosion protection for products that are used in the most challenging environments.
