Pipelines, Valve and Rebar Coatings
Axalta functional powder coatings serve the vital oil and gas sector. Our Nap-Gard® brand of fusion bonded epoxy thermosetting powder coatings prevent corrosion on the exterior and interior of underground and sub-sea oil and gas pipelines from short distribution feeders to transcontinental pipelines for major oil and gas transportation. Nap-Gard also meets requirements for valve and rebar used in construction.
Nap-Gard powder coatings offer decades of performance and a world of experience. Since 1954, Nap-Gard fusion bonded epoxy powder coatings has been the innovator behind many of the practices used today in coating pipe with epoxy coatings. Available in single, dual, and multi-layer systems Nap-Gard® was developed to provide maximum corrosion protection of internal and external pipe for oil and gas pipelines, gas risers, hydrants, wire mesh, potable water and rebar for concrete structures. The latest development from Nap-Gard offers a coating with added high temperature tolerances that enable wells to drill more deeply.
