Project Details

During works for the Expressway Program West Corridor 010 (Package 1) project in Qatar in November 2015, a Premier Coatings Ltd corrosion prevention system was used to protect numerous carbon steel coupling joints that were destined to be buried.

The carbon steel couplings were used to connect a GRP pipe on one side to a concrete inspection chamber on the other.

The Premier System was selected for the long-term protection of the couplings based on numerous successful Middle East case histories over the past 20 plus years. The system comprises Premcote Primer applied to the coupling surface, Premier Joint Moulding Putty used to fill voids, and smooth profiles ready for overwrapping with Premcote 1500 Tape.
