Asphalt Enamel

Asphalt Enamel Pipeline Coating

Asphalt Enamel (AE) is a plant applied coating based on modified bitumen which has been successfully used for many years for corrosion protection of steel pipes. Shawcor is the world’s leading provider of AE coatings.

  • Excellent adhesion to steel and long-term performance evidenced by many projects still in operation today
  • Recommended for offshore pipelines requiring concrete weight coating with low shear installation when the continuous temperature of the fluid being transported does not exceed 70°C (158°F)*
  • Available with varying grades of asphalt enamels, wraps and thicknesses to meet your design specification
  • Extensive track record - over 8,000 asphalt enamel pipe totaling over 80,000 km (50,000 miles) coated and installed across the world
* Actual temperature will depend upon design criteria
