Innerkote® is a range of liquid paint coatings applied on the pipe inner surface aimed to reduce roughness. In virtue thereof, Innerkote® coatings are applied on gasline where its smooth finishing enables to reduce the fluid's friction, thus saving energy in compression stations. In this case, Innerkote® usual thickness is of 65 to 100 µm.
Nevertheless, Innerkote® can also be applied in ducts aimed at liquids transportation on condition that an appropriate liquid paint selection is made.
Once the pipe inner surface is blasted, the liquid paint is applied using "airless" pistols in order to obtain a uniform and smooth layer which is cured in a furnace or in open air, depending on the type of paint chosen.
