  • Scotchkote Pipe Renewal Liner 2400

    Potable Water Rehabilitation Products

    3M Scotchkote Pipe Renewal Liner 2400 helps protect water quality and service life in existing potable water pipes without the cost and community impacts of full pipe replacement.

    Scotchkote Liner 2400 is a quick curing polyurea formulation. A trenchless solution, it is spray applied using a spin cast method. Pipes can often be returned to service within one day.

    Coating with Scotchkote Liner 2400 can:

    • Protect water quality by removing tuberculation and inhibiting corrosion that contribute to red and brown water
    • Increase water flow by restoring and maintaining internal pipe diameter
    • Reduce water loss by helping to repair cracks, pin holes and corrosion pitting

    Scotchkote Liner 2400 is approved for contact with drinking water in countries in North America, Asia and Europe and for use on pipes between 4" (100 mm) and 48" (1220 mm) made of a variety of materials.

    Protecting Water Tanks

    Whether in a water or sewage treatment plant, power station or refinery, in a hospital, school, factory or other public building, there is a need to protect the externals and line the internals of tanks and vessels to either protect the substrate from attack, or to maintain water quality. 3M™ Scotchkote™ liquid coatings help provide corrosion and chemical resistance and are used for tanks and vessels in contact with potable water, sea water, raw water or wastewater environments.

    Bulk storage of water needs to be within carefully considered vessels or reservoirs. Many of these hold large volumes of water, and need to have a degree of flexibility, either due to their substrate or construction. 3M Scotchkote liquid coatings are recommended for the internals and externals of tanks and storage vessels. Coating solutions provide corrosion and chemical resistance and are recommended for tanks and vessels in contact with potable water, sea water, raw water or wastewater environments.

  • Stacked pipes with epoxy coating

    Protecting Wastewater Pipes and Tanks

    Maintaining raw and wastewater asset integrity is a key requirement for cities and a necessity for public health. Whether in a sewage treatment plant or in the wastewater distribution system there is a need to protect the internals and externals of pipes, tanks, and vessels from attack. 3M Scotchkote coatings provide the necessary protection from a diverse range of wastewater and raw water conditions and offer repair solutions for your wastewater needs.

  • Equipment with epoxy coating EA5WB

    Protecting Equipment from Corrosion

    Equipment in contact with water needs to be protected from the corrosive effect of the water, plus be certified for contact with potable water where applicable. Maintaining and repairing pumps and valves with protective coatings can lead to greater operational efficiency, energy savings, reduced outage downtime and longer asset life.
