The pipe coating division of ShawCor Ltd., Bredero Shaw, is the world’s largest pipe coatings manufacturer. Bredero Shaw is the global leader in pipe coating solutions for the oil, gas and water industries, offering a wide range of coating solutions, including anti-corrosion protection, thermal insulation, negative buoyancy, mechanical protection and internal flow efficiency coatings.
ShawCor Ltd.’s Bredero Shaw pipe coating division recently introduced SureBond. SureBond is a new class of line-pipe coating that provides superior pipe protection and field joint integrity. It uses an interlocking topcoat molecular structure that solves the difficulties typical to 3-layer coatings and is half as thick. SureBond eliminates the adhesive layer and forms a bond with both the field joint and anti-corrosion layers.
