The new pipe (diameters from 400 mm – 2400 mm) were transported to the various regional coating yards, checked and cleaned, abrasive blasted or ground to remove any defects or contaminants and skimmed. Surface preparation was followed by application of Nukote EP Prime II and the Nukote ST pure polyurea to client specified DFT.
