Nap-Gard FBE Powder Coatings
Nap-Gard was developed to provide maximum corrosion protection of internal and external pipe for oil and gas pipelines as well as valve and girth weld coating protection. Axalta Nap-Gard fusion bonded epoxy powder coatings are the innovator behind today’s pipe coating practices using epoxy coatings.
Available in single, dual and multi-layer systems, Nap-Gard is designed to provide maximum corrosion protection of internal and external pipe for oil and gas pipelines along with demanding wastewater and saltwater environments.
Nap-Gard also provides corrosion protection for:
- Valve products
- Girth Welds
Nap-Gard External Pipe Coating
Single Layer Systems
7-2500 Series – In buried service, the coating is designed to be capable of withstanding continuous operating temperatures of 107°C (225°F). May also be used on the inside of steel pipe and fittings, and is NSF-61 approved for potable water services.
7-2514 EN Series – Designed to be capable of withstanding continuous operating temperatures of 103°C (217°F). Formulated to offer improved resistance to cathodic disbondment and excellent corrosion resistanceHigh Tg.
7-2555– used in submerged or wet conditions where high in-service temperatures exist, up to 155°C (311°F)
Dual Layer Systems
7-2610- Abrasion resistant overcoat (ARO) provided abrasion an impact resitance, aids in protecting the the corrosion coating from damage during the installation or directional drilling process.
7-2504- Provides water and impact resistance at high temperatures, capable of withstanding continuous operating temperatures of 130°C (265°F).
7-2502NS- Provides a bonded, non-slip surface over standard FBE. This coating provides additional shear slip resistance to concrete coated pipe, used for negative buoyancy in offshore installations. (NS is a sacrificial coating and can be applied over any of our systems.
7-2675 – When used with 7-2555, the operating systems increases to 180°C (356°F). The second layer provides reduced water permeability and improved chemical resistance.
FBE Pipe Coating
7-0008- Capable of withstanding continuous operating temperatures of 93°C (200°F).
7-0017- Capable of withstanding continuous operating temperatures of 140°C (285°F). Provides corrosion protection in high temperature and high pressure sweet and sour gas environments.
7-0014 -Designed for both external and internal pipe coating for buried pipeline service. In particular, it is recommended for use on the inside of steel pipe. Meets the requirements of AWWA standards C116, C213, C550 and CSA standard Z245.20-10. Certified to NSF-61, drinking water system components.
Nap-Gard functional coatings are a leading choice for rebar application for concrete structures and bridges. These systems meet or exceed the performance standards set by ASTM and AASHTO. They are designed to resist cobwebbing and shatter cracking when rebar is formed. These FBE Rebar systems are 100% solids, HAPs free, and are high building in just a single coat.
7-4500 Coatings are designed for use as a valve coating. In testing, it meets the requirements of UL 262 Gate Valve specification and FM 1120/1130, 1510 and 1511 specifications. It has been certified to NSF-61, drinkingwater system components (AWWA C213).
Girth Weld Coating & FBE Repairs Materials
Axalta offers a two-part liquid epoxy material, FBE and epoxy patch compounds for repair of Nap-Gard coated pipe or rebar and for field joint coatings of external girth welds. Select systems are formulated to offer excellent cathodic disbondment performance for temperatures up to 150°C (302°F).
