Dual-Layer FBE (Nap-Gard® Gold)

Dual-Layer Heat Resistant FBE coating

The dual-layer Nap-Gard® Gold FBE system was developed to provide maximum corrosion protection of oil and gas pipelines; as well as water pipelines operating at higher than normal temperatures. Nap-Gard® Gold provides excellent properties for hot and/or wet environments where other conventional pipe coatings may not be suitable.

High Operating Temperature Capabilities

  • Nap-Gard® Gold system provides excellent adhesion to steel, providing superior long term corrosion resistance and protection of pipelines operating up to 130°C
  • The product is resistant to both hot and wet service conditions
  • The product has excellent corrosion, chemical and soil stress resistance
  • The FBE primer has excellent adhesion to steel and provides superior long term corrosion resistance and protection of pipelines with excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment which reduces the total cost of cathodic protection during the operation of the pipeline.

Excellent Impact Resistance

  • The system provides excellent impact resistance and sufficient flexibility to protect against possible damage to the anti-corrosion coating during pipe transportation and pipeline construction

Improved handling characteristics

  • The system has a flexible and impact resistant top-coat layer which allows for bending of pipes

Global Availability

The system can be manufactured in a single plant or in multiple coating plants to improve project logistics.
