CORE Coat® is steel linepipe with a factory applied internal coating for corrosion resistance. The pipe is field assembled using CORE ClickWeld® which eliminates traditional welding and enables the pipe to be joined without damage to the internal coating.
CORE Coat® offers alternate solutions to customers who currently use corrosion management solutions such as chemical programs. CORE Coat® provides a corrosion prevention alternative that saves money by elimination of the ongoing operational expenses associated with chemical programs.
We chose CORE Linepipe’s new technology not just because of the significant time and cost savings but also because of the long-term integrity benefits. In this environment when pipelines are coming under increased public and regulatory scrutiny, we wanted a system that we wouldn’t have to even think about for generations. The new CORE Liner™ and ClickWeld™ technologies provided that solution at a discount to what we would have had to pay for older technologies. Given the benefits, we would not hesitate to use this technology on any pipelines we construct in the future.
