About Pipeline Division:
Polyguard’s Pipeline Division was the first coating manufacturer to highlight the cathodic shielding problem, and the first to develop a coating to address the shielding problem. We’ve been active in the Pipeline Protective Coating industry for more than 50 years. In addition to standard types of Corrosion Coatings, this division has designed, manufactured, and introduced a number of innovative Underground Pipeline Coatings and Girth Weld Coatings, which have become commercially accepted as standards for the industry. They are both Non-Shielding Coatings and Soil Stress Tolerant. Our product offerings include NHT-5600™ 2-Part Epoxy with a 30% – 50% longer pot life than the competition, and Reactive Gel, in addition to our popular RD-6® Coating System.
The use of Polyguard Pipeline Tape Coatings that don’t cause Cathodic Shielding if Coating Disbondment occurs, helps mitigate Pipeline Corrosion often associated with buried steel pipe. Our Non-Shielding Coatings, Cathodic Protection Compatible, and Offshore Girth Weld Coatings are industry leading protective applications.
