Proper pipe installation is much more complicated than connecting all the pieces together. It also involves determining the pipe’s environment and establishing preparative measures to prevent any structural damage. Pipes are open game for everything that nature has to throw at it, including harsh weather, sand, wind, heavy soil, temperature extremes, and snow.
Applying a protective coating has long been a standard solution for preserving a pipe’s integrity, but not all coating solutions are equal. Applied in the 1930s, the first coatings were composed of single materials such as tar or asphalt. Soon, people began to realize that a single material did not possess all the properties necessary to form the most comprehensive and long-lasting protection.
Today, polymer coatings are the standard solutions because they hold protective properties from a variety of different substances. Of these polymers, polyurethane pipe coating has proven to be a considerably popular application due to its durability, versatility, and ease of installation. We at Slabjack Geotechnical have years of experience applying polyurethane pipe coating in Northern Idaho and Washington and have seen the effects it has on a pipe’s long-standing security.
