One of the biggest water transfer projects in Iran, is 80-inch buried steel pipeline, from the border between Iran and Turkmenistan to Mashhad. While the primary system of pipe lining was concrete lining, according to the advantages of epoxy, after the first piece, the epoxy coating system was changed in accordance with AWWA C20 standard. An international tender was held to provide paint for this project. With regard to the quality confirmation of 73527 Bajapox SF paint with reasonable price and on-site service, Bajak Company undertook to provide paints for 150 km pipeline of the project.
Given the size of the project, the contractor company decided to build a new rolling mill factory and produce spiral pipes on the project site. And Bajak experts, from commissioning and startup process of coating line, to applying paint and dispatching pipes to the project, were continuously active. Preparation and application of paints were performed under the most stringent quality control tests. Due to weather conditions, particularly cold in winter, the necessary changes were made in the formulation of paints to avoid any interruption in production speed. The product is also used for seam welding pipes after tubing and have successfully been applied.
Based on research, quality of coverage, after 5 years was inspected and no damage and problems in the applied coating were observed.
