Project Details

The Sydney Desalination Pipeline project was completed in two sections, underground and above ground.

The Steelcoat 400 System™ was used to protect the 700 metre above ground pipeline. The System consisted of Penetrating Primer, Bitumen Mastic, which was then wrapped with Ultraseal Tape and over coated with 2 coats of Acrylic Topcoat. Once trimmed to a manageable size the Ultraseal Tape was applied over the primer and mastic. Two coats of black Acrylic Topcoat were applied once wrapping was completed.

The system chosen to protect 700 metre long underground pipeline was Denso Primer D™, Bitumen Mastic, Ultraflex 1500 then over wrapped in MP/HD Overwrap Tape (not photographed). Both systems were chosen keeping in mind that the customer required that the pipeline be easily maintained and monitored.
