KalenbornAbresist Corporation has announced the introduction of a range of specialized adhesives to be used for pipeline coating. These include pressure transfer fillers for the repair of high pressure pipelines. The adhesives, KALFIX 911 and KALFIX 913, will allow for ultra-strong adhesion even when used underwater. KALFIX 563 displaces water and creates permanent bonds between all substrates with little substrate preparation required. It will be used as a pipeline coating and for cold weather applications. KALFIX 206, a liquid epoxy resin combined with a high temperature curing agent, will cure hard and free of dust under normal temperatures thanks to its heat distortion properties.
The new range of coatings will complement the existing line of KALPOXY coatings currently offered by the company which also produces abrasion and wear resistant linings for bulk materials pipelines. The company says it aims to reduce downtime and maintenance requirements through its products.（(Source: ASC)）
