Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to announce the forming of a strategic relationship between Axalta and Hempel (USA) Inc. The relationship will enable the formulation/availability of a coating system that boasts external coatings with significant corrosion protection and internal coatings with advanced flow efficiency for natural gas transmission pipes in the North American oil and gas pipeline market.
“We, at Axalta, are thrilled to partner with Hempel to offer a full product line of world class powder and liquid coatings for the North American market,” stated Ron Hull, Axalta North American Sales Manager.
This new relationship combines the corrosion protection found in Axalta’s fusion-bonded-epoxy powder for external pipe for oil and gas pipelines with Hempel’s advanced, liquid, flow-efficiency epoxies for internal coating. The resulting product is a corrosion and abrasion-resistant internal and external coating designed to be suitable for even the harshest of environments.
“By pairing Hempel and Axalta’s product offerings, we offer the gas-pipe industry an unparalleled technology and competitiveness platform,” explained Martin Miller, Hempel U.S.A. Downstream Segment Manager.
This new relationship provides customers with an excellent value-proposition for the quickly growing gas transmission business in North America. For more information please visit www.north-america.hempel.com and www.axalta.us/powder.
