V.I.P. Pesaro is one of the few companies able to offer the 3LPP coating on pipes as well as on custom pieces.
The coating is a multilayer composed of a primer fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) followed by an adhesive copolymer and another layer of polypropylene which provides resistance and long-lasting protection.
The system ensures the applicability of the sintered coating also on pieces with special shapes.
Long-term anticorrosive protection
The FBE primer offers an excellent adhesion to the substrate and provides a long-term corrosion protection for pipelines operating at moderate temperatures. It also ensures resistance to cathodic disbondment so the total cost of cathodic protection of the pipeline decreases.
Very good mechanical protection
The layer of applied polypropylene protects the pipeline during transport and installation, thus reducing repair costs and guarantees underground protection against mechanical, chemical and abrasive attacks.
The thicker the applied polyethylene the higher the obtained mechanical protection.
Other advantages of the sintered system
V.I.P. using this special application technique is able to coat also specific pieces with special shapes. (bends, tees, reducers, joints, etc.).
There aren’t any limitations about the amount of pieces to coat, even the single piece can be treated.
3LPP can be applied in different thicknesses to meet the requirements of the project specifications.
