Sintakote Steel Pipeline Systems

Premium corrosion protection system with Sintakote


Steel Mains has been supplying Sintakote steel pipeline systems for over 40 years. This system has demonstrated outstanding performance both above and belowground in thousands of different applications and environments. The Sintakote technology has been developed into several core pipeline systems, tailored to suit specific applications along with the operating environment and consists of coating, lining and a joint system on both pipes and fittings. It is recognised by the water industry as the premium corrosion protection system for steel water pipelines. Pipes can be manufactured in a range of effective laying lengths from 6.0 to 13.4 metres with wall thicknesses ranging from 4.5mm to 20mm.


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. It’s versatile enough to endure aggressive soils and exposure to direct UV sunlight.  Steel Mains developed Sintakote in conjunction with the Australian Water Authorities, to help 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. This system of fusion bonded polyethylene coating is proven to provide superior external corrosion protection in almost all operating environments.
