Coatings

 


 

Sintakote

SINTAKOTE is a medium density polyethylene which is applied to the pipe by a fusion bonding process. Polyethylene, supplied as a powder, is fusion bonded onto a blasted preheated steel pipe. This process provides a continuous and holiday free coating, with a smooth surface, ideal for above and below ground applications even in aggressive soils and when exposed to direct UV sunlight.

 

SINTAKOTE was developed by Steel Mains, in conjunction with Australian Water Authorities, to overcome pipeline failures due to inadequate coating systems. A worldwide research project was undertaken by Steel Mains to find the best coating system available. Further developments have maintained SINTAKOTE as a world leading coating and lining system for steel water pipelines.

 

Please refer to our Design Manual for more detailed information on our Sintakote Coating system.

 

Features of the coating include:

  • Excellent adhesion
  • High impact and load resistance
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High dielectric strength
  • High electrical resistivity
  • Low water absorption
  • Resistance to soil stresses
  • Wide service temperature range temperatures from minus 40°C to plus 70°C have no detrimental effect on SINTAKOTE
  • Ability to accept cold bending of the pipe in accordance with AS 2885 without damage to the coating
