WHAT IS POLYKEN?

  • Polyken tape coating systems provide proven long term corrosion prevention utilizing cold-applied and fused tape coatings. These coating systems can be applied in plant and in field installations that meet current global standards. For more than 55 years, the Polyken tape coating systems have been utilized to protect pipelines against corrosion in various climates and environments around the world.
  • Polyken consists of a wide range of tape coating systems that meet the rigorous demands of on-land and off-shore pipelines. Polyken coating systems utilize expertly engineered high tensile polyolefin backings formulated for resistance to water absorption and soil stress. Polyken’s proprietary cross-linked butyl-alloy adhesives are specially formulated for high bond strength, high shear resistance and long term stability. Polyken’s anti-corrosion pipeline coating system is known and documented to provide long term anti-corrosion protection to steel pipelines.

3ply / 2ply cold applied tapes

The Polyken 980,955 is a multilayer system used for the protection of steel pipelines. Polyken 1019,1027,1033A or 1039 Liquid Adhesives can be used as primers for this system.In addition to serving as primers, these liquid adhesives themselves represent an anti corrosion layer and provide a uniformly smooth contact surface to promote high adhesion of the coating system to the pipe.
