Three Layer Polypropylene Coating
Bredero Shaw is the world's leading provider of Three Layer Polypropylene Systems (3LPP). Bredero Shaw's 3LPP System is a multilayer coating composed of three functional components. This anti-corrosion system consists of a high performance fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) followed by a copolymer adhesive and an outer layer of polypropylene which provides the toughest, most durable pipe coating solution available. 3LPP Systems provide excellent pipeline protection for small and large diameter pipelines with high operating temperatures.
High Temperature Corrosion Protection
The FBE component of the 3LPP System provides excellent adhesion to steel, providing superior long term corrosion resistance and protection of pipelines operating at high temperatures.
The superior adhesion properties of the FBE also results in excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment, reducing the total cost of cathodic protection during the operation of the pipeline.
Excellent Mechanical Protection
3LPP can be manufactured in a single plant or in multiple coating plants to improve project logistics.
Through Bredero Shaw's global footprint of high capacity plants clients benefit from single point of contact project management, even in the most demanding logistical configuration.
