Universal Pipe Coating from AkzoNobel
A Universal Coating Solution
The Universal Pipe Coating (UPC) range is designed to help ensure maximum performance and deliver cost savings vs. traditional solutions. It provides long term corrosion protection for equipment operating at extreme temperatures, and is flexible to use in both insulated and non-insulated conditions.

Standardizing coating specifications
The UPC approach has been developed to simplify the specification for process pipework, valves and vessels. This approach reduces complex specifications down to just two products - Interbond 1202UPC and Interbond 2340UPC:
- Temperature resistant from -196°C (-321°F) to 230°C (446°F)
- Fast, low temperature cure down to -5°C (23°F) improves productivity in cold weather
- Excellent tolerance to over-application reduces rework costs
- Temperature resistant from -196°C (-321°F) up to 650°C (1202°F)
- Effectively cures at ambient temperature, ensuring long term performance without a primer as per the performance criteria of the ISO12944-9:2018 (ISO20340) standard.
- Short minimum overcoating intervals maximize productivity
Have you considered the effects of UV radiation on high temperature coatings during project construction?
For many years, Epoxy Phenolic technology has been a common solution specified to protect pipework operating at high temperatures. These coatings evolved from linings used for the internals of storage tanks, where a highly crosslinked film was advantageous to resist the damaging effects of strong chemicals or high temperature service. Over time, it was realized that the high crosslink density also provided an effective barrier to mitigate the damaging effects of Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI). What happens when this technology is exposed to UV radiation over an extended construction phase?
In our latest article, we present a benchmarking study of several commercially available Epoxy Phenolic coatings alongside novel Alkylated Amine Epoxy technology in uninsulated conditions. Complete the form to download our exclusive white paper.
