“Axalta is excited to bring these highly effective functional products to the oil and gas industry,” said Meghan Hodge, Axalta Global Product Marketing Manager, Functional Coatings. “Our new high temperature internal pipe coatings are formulated to provide superior corrosion protection in severe downhole environments.”
Corrosion caused by carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulphide (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 exhibit extreme corrosion protection against high levels of H2S and CO2, as well as methane (CH4) even at high temperatures and pressures.
Axalta’s Nap-Gard collection of powder coatings are 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. Axalta’s functional coatings offer innovative solutions for today’s epoxy-based coating applications and are designed to provide superior corrosion protection for products used in the most demanding environments.
