Pipe & Valve
For more than 50 years, Valspar has been protecting pipelines in the most demanding operating environments. Designed for application on a wide variety of pipe sizes and wall thicknesses, Valspar Pipeclad™ coatings assure consistent field performance with outstanding resistance to cracking, cold flow and softening over a wide temperature range. With Valspar Pipeclad, coated pipe is able to stand up to a wide range of chemicals, providing around-the-clock protection against the caustic effects of corrosion.
Meeting the Challenge: Protecting a $2.65 Billion Pipeline Investment
The 680-mile long Ruby natural gas pipeline stretching from Wyoming to Oregon meets the growing needs for clean-burning, competitively priced natural gas in the western United States. A trio of Valspar coatings protect this $3.65 billion pipeline infrastructure: Valspar Pipeclad® 2000 rough coat, Pipeclad 2040 abrasion-resistant overcoat on the outside of the pipes and Pipeclad Flowliner coating on the inside of the pipes to improve the flow efficiency of 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.
