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® External Pipe Coatings
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.
Nap-Gard® Internal Pipe Coatings
These coatings are used for a variety of internal corrosion protection from drinking water pipes to pipes/tubing in the most stringent down hole environments:
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.
