Asphalt is used in many coating applications. AWWA, AASHTO, ANSI and other similar organizations specify the application of “bituminous coatings” when protecting steel or concrete pipes, pipe casings or other structural steel items from corrosion. Two such specifications are ASSHTO M190 and M243. Specific requirements range from the suitable methods of application (spray, brush and trowel), resistance to hot or freezing temperatures, physical properties and adherence characteristics.
McAsphalt’s pipe coatings create an impermeable, water-deterring layer that offers excellent resistance to acids, alkalines and salts. Our products can be used as a primer or coating above or below grade and can be applied by roller, brush or spray equipment. Our product line will dry to a tough, durable finish that maintains performance under a wide range of temperatures and conditions.
