Fast Cure, High Build Pipeline Coating
Protal 7200 is a VOC free, 100% solids, 2 part epoxy coating specially formulated to compliment FBE coated pipe. It is a high build liquid coating that is brush or spray applied in one coat in the field or shop. It cures very fast to allow quick handling and backfill times.
On-site protection of girth welds, tie-ins, welds for boring applications, repairs to FBE, push-rack applications, station piping, fittings and fabrication. Also used for main line pipe coating, sacrificial coating for directional drill (ARO) and road bore pipe, and rehabilitation of existing pipelines.
- Fast touch dry and set times
- High temperature resistance up to 203°F (95°C)
- High build (up to 70 mils / 1778 microns in one coat)
- Excellent adhesion (compliments FBE coated pipe)
- High abrasion resistance for drilling applications
- Can be used as an abrasion resistant coating (ARO)
- Safe and environmentally friendly
- Does not shield cathodic protection
- Can be applied with brush, roller or spray
- Available in a variety of packaging options
- Meets AWWA C-210-92 Standard
- Outstanding self-leveling characteristics
- CSA Z245.30 compliant
Prepare surfaces by grit blasting to a clean near-white finish, SSPC-SP 10 / NACE No. 2. Appropriate angular grit shall be used to achieve a 2.5 to 5 mil (63 to 127 microns) anchor profile. Initially stir the base and hardener. Add the hardener to base and mix at a slow speed until a constant colour is achieved making sure all sides of container are scraped. Apply mixed material onto surface and brush, trowel or roll to required mil thickness. A wet-fi lm thickness gauge shall be used to measure mil thickness. If surface temperature falls below 50°F (10°C), surface should be preheated to achieve faster cure. Preheat may be achieved with a propane torch or induction coil. Resin and hardener component shall be kept warm, at a minimum of 60°F (15°C), to mix more easily.
Prepare surfaces by grit blasting to a clean near-white finish, SSPC-SP 10/ NACE No. 2. Appropriate angular grit shall be used to achieve a 2.5 to 5 mil (63 to 127 microns) anchor profile. The equipment shall be a XP70 Plural Component Sprayer or similar designed to mix and atomize 100% solids epoxies. Please refer to the Protal 7200 Plural Spray Application Specification for equipment details. Part A should be heated to 140°F – 160°F (60°C – 71°C) and Part B heated to 100°F – 110°F (38°C – 43°C). Hose bundle shall be set at 140°F – 150°F (60°C – 65°C). A wet on wet spray technique should be used to achieve a minimum thickness of 20 mils (508 microns). The coating thickness should be measured using a wet-fi lm thickness gauge. The equipment settings are only guidelines and may vary based on equipment.
