Piping Internal With Glass Flake Coating

Glass

WHAT ARE GLASS FLAKE COATING?

Glass Flake coatings are characterized as Lamella structures, unlike granular fillers in regular coating systems. The principle is to provide a tortuous path through the resin binder so that the corrosive Ions migration becomes more difficult.

Why Internal pipe coating?
  • Pipe internal corrosion prevention
  • Flow improvement
  • To minimize deposit formation
Piping Applications:
1. Sea Water intake pipeline 2. Fire Water Lines and Portable Water Pipelines 3. Pipeline carrying Acid / Alkali solution 4. Pipelines are subjected to the high corrosive environment such as high humid areas.
Advantages of Glass flake Coating
1. Good chemical resistance, 2. Good solvent resistance, 3. Good adhesion, 4. Low permeability, 5. Good weather properties, 6. Excellent gloss retention.
Limitations of Glass flake Coatings
1. Not suitable for abrasive fluids/slurries 2. Requires re-coating intervals DEMECH CHEMICAL has developed the technology for internal pipeline coating with complete automation. We have complete automatic blasting and coating set up which can line up pipes from 75 NB onwards and can do the coatings up to 12 meters at one go. Welding joint coating at 12 meters is also attended to on sites by special automatic equipment.

One thought on “Piping Internal With Glass Flake Coating

  1. Thanks for pointing out that the advantages of glass flake internal pipe coating would be resisting chemicals and solvent well, having good adhesion, low permeability, good weather properties, and excellent gloss retention. I can imagine how all of these advantages would be useful for you in the long run if it means that it will not easily get damaged by different elements. With that in mind, it will be a good investment for you if you are also looking for something that will not cost you a lot in the long run by avoiding the need for replacements and repairs.
