Optimum protection from corrosion

PPG PMC’s advanced technology in pipeline coatings offers outstanding corrosion protection, temperature resistance, and enhanced flow characteristics for the transportation of petroleum products, crude oil, gas and potable water.

PPG’s expertise in pipe coatings dates back to the 1960s and its liquid applied coatings are now used globally for internal and external oil-, gas- and (potable) water pipelines in the most extreme environments.

Building on this heritage, PPG today offers a range of advanced pipe coating solutions. In addition, PPG has the supply capabilities to manage huge, complex projects, such as mega water schemes in South Africa and also has the recognized technical knowledge to support highly specialized in situ refurbishment projects.

PPG SIGMALINE® 415: Internal Pipeline Refurbishment for Middle East Oil Major

On this project, as with many others, the challenge was to deliver the most cost-effective system compared to alternatives, supported by highly technical solutions, technical support and advice. The overall aim for the pipeline refurbishment was not simply a ‘quick-fix’ but to offer a long-lasting solution that would help reduce the total cost of ownership. The PPG SIGMALINE 415 epoxy coating was identified as the ideal solution.
