Turkish Manufacturer Selects Nap-Gard® for Steel Pipes

Published on 2008-09-09. Author : SpecialChem

DuPont CoatingSolutions was chosen to supply Borusan Mannesmann -- the largest steel pipe manufacturer in Turkey -- with Nap-Gard® functional products for an anti-corrosive external powder coating application that will be used on a liquefied natural gas project for pipeline system giant, El Paso Corporation.

El Paso's "Elba Island" liquefied natural gas project consists of 312 kilometers of long steel pipe that will increase natural gas flow in the southeastern United States, primarily in Georgia. To date, this is the largest project manufactured by Borusan Mannesmann.

"This is a big opportunity and a new step for DuPont CoatingSolutions to penetrate the pipe coating offerings in the Turkish market. It will enable the company to extend its offerings to other potential customers in Turkey," said Halide Aydinlik, country business manager, DuPont Industrial CoatingSolutions, Turkey.

Halide notes that DuPont CoatingSolutions was preferred among the competition due to the company's high quality, good service and strong intention to become a solution partner for Borusan Mannesmann.
