Aathaworld Sdn Bhd is your preferred pipe coating system supplier and contractor Malaysia, from existing to new piping, covering KL Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Klang Valley and other states in Malaysia. As a pipe coating service provider and applicator, we specialize in multiple types of pipeline such as concrete pipe, mild steel, stainless steel and many more. There are many areas in building, industrial plant or even infrastructure require proper coating system, to ensure the durability and safety level are being maximized.
There are several organic coatings can be used to protect pipeline against passive external corrosion, active corrosion protection such as cathodic protection is also being supplemented with the organic type. Depending on multiple aspects consideration, it will determine the selection of which coating system option will be used. Pipe coating supplier in Malaysia will normally take into account concerns such as compatibility with cathodic protection, operating temperature, soil characteristics, level of external stress need to withstand. Few properties that are important in the coating system, the first one should be defect-free protective coating shall be there within a time frame under the practical limitations including fluctuating temperatures. Coating should have certain tolerance level to deal with in service deterioration, field bending and convenient to handle during construction. Pipe coating supplier Malaysia understands properties of good coating system must meet numerous criteria in order to deliver the best performing pipes to customer.
Those benchmarks needed to be attended are including resistance against impact, penetration, cathodic disbondment, water absorption, soil stress, chemicals as well as damages caused during handling stage. Impact resistance is more or less similar to the hardwearing feature (include during handling process), it must have equipped with this because impact received from foreign objects could be very frequent and nearly unavoidable too. If impact resistance level is high for the coating, then the maintenance and replacement cost will be lower. Pipe coating supplier in Malaysia strongly emphasize on this point because when pipe has strong surface treatment, the tendency of breakage and leaking will be lower. Meaning to say, there is lesser chance to have a plant maintenance just to repair the pipe; since the maintenance of plant will cause the shutdown of manufacturing or fluid transportation, subsequently hike up the opportunity cost of generating revenue. After all, lower water absorption rate or resistance to water is also essential to plant owner because fluid internally will pass through at any point of time; need to make sure the fluid did not actually sip through the surface protection layer. Water is also a main cause to the corrosion, pipe coating supplier Malaysia knows it well and definitely will formulate at the lowest water absorption rate.
Although there is a low possibility where water penetrates the pipe and dilute the fluid content, but it must always have full attention because it might cause severe problem, especially for the oil and gas (O&G) industry. Soil stress level is also relatively important because many pipes are installed underground with soil and other elements. The weight, the properties of soil will definitely a burden to pipe and its coating. Pipe coating supplier in Malaysia has already done enough studies to make sure in specific circumstances, the pipe coating can withstand those stress brought by both dead and dynamic loads. Chemical resistance is one of the top priorities that most customers look for, despite of the industries. Industry ranges from petrochemical, oil and gas, palm oil, food and beverage, manufacturing plant, power sector, pharmaceutical, chemical to many others. Chemical resistant against specific or a few elements must be evaluated properly by both customer and product maker, irrespective of whether it is related to acidity, alkali or other chemical properties. Pipe coating supplier Malaysia should aware of these chemicals will affect the strength of the pipe if the coated layer was broken through and penetrated to the pipe substance, causing safety issue.
In addition, few other aspects of a proper coated system on the pipeline are including the abrasion resistance (hardness), bending flexibility, volume resistivity, stability at temperature changes, HSE consideration, frequency of maintenance and refurbishment. Hardness or known as abrasion resistance aspect is not only applied to the pipe itself, also the coating layer in order to safeguard double protection. Pipe coating contractor in Malaysia needs to make sure abrasion resistance is high, wear and tear maintenance is highly dependable on this feature. Pipe has high tendency in receiving third party or foreign component’s impact and potentially scraping happens to the metal, therefore, it is essential to use high resistance against abrasion damage. At the same time, bending flexibility shall be there for pipe coating layer so it can be stable over circumstances of temperature changes, dynamic vibration, overloaded flow rate. Pipe coating contractor Malaysia claims that high flexibility or volume resistivity coated pipe will allow pipe to function well under working environment that is high pressure, high volume, high fluid flow rate, high temperature and other stresses.
Several coating are bring applied to the pipe, including fusion bonded epoxy coating (FBE), three-layers poly-ethylene or propylene coating (3LPE / 3LPP) as well as the coal tar enamel coating (CTE). The first one is also commonly addressed as FBE coating, it is widely applied epoxy-based powder coating that named by its resin cross-linking as well as method of its application since it is dissimilar to traditional paint. The second one usually called by pipe coating contractor in Malaysia as 3LPE or 3LPP is a three components functional multilayer coating comprise of FBE, copolymer adhesive and final layer made up of either medium or high density polyethylene (MDPE or HDPE). Last but not least, another coating kind that used by the industry players is known as CTE. CTE is a coating system prepared by primer, coal tar enamel as well as glass fibre inner and its outer wrap. Experienced pipe coating contractor Malaysia always prepare that pipe coating through blast cleaning, primer and before followed by the specified components or method.
