A new line of protective coatings for the water transmission pipe industry has been introduced by BASF. Elastocoat AC line of two-component polyurethane coatings are ideal for transmission pipes used in new installation and infrastructure renovation projects. It is a 100% solid elastomeric coating, which can be utilized as a corrosion-resistant exterior coating or as an interior lining for clean and polluted water transmission pipelines. The two-component pipe coating is free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It offers several benefits, including exceptional cathodic disbondment property and high resistance to abrasion and impact. Elastocoat AC has been developed for the cathodic protection of ductile iron and steel pipes and associated fittings. The material meets the American Water Works Association’s AWWA-C222 specification, a polyurethane coatings standard.
