AWWA Coating Standards

Coal Tar Enamel (AWWA C203)

With nearly 100 years of proven corrosion protection, coal tar enamel is unequaled for long term performance. The coating is versatile enough to be used on pipe from 1/2" up to 144" diameters, as well as on any shape fitting or special. The coating is comprised of an adhesive primer, a layer of hot enamel, fiberglass inner wrap, a second layer of hot enamel, a felt outer wrap, and a final wrap of kraft paper or white wash.

Cement Mortar Lining (AWWA C205)

Cement and sand mixture is centrifugally placed to the interior of the spinning pipe. The mortar is evenly distributed to produce a smooth, dense finish of uniform thickness. Cement mortar lining can be applied to pipe sizes 4" thru 36" diameter. All sizes of fittings can be lined by hand application.

Hand Wrap Tape (AWWA C209)

Hand wrap tape applications consist of cold-applied liquid adhesives and prefabricated tapes and their applications to special sections, connections, and fittings to be used for underground and underwater steel water pipelines protected with organic coatings, such as those described in AWWA C203, AWWA C210, AWWA C213, AWWA C214, AWWA C215, AWWA C225 AWWA C216.

Epoxy Linings & Coatings (AWWA C210)

Spray applied epoxy coatings can be used in many environments, such as buried service, exposed, vaults, plant piping, and fabricated pipe spools. NSF-61 approved epoxy is used for lining pipe in contact with potable water. Epoxy linings can be applied in pipe sizes of 2" thru 144". External coatings can be applied to any pipe size. Mobile Pipe is approved by all of the major epoxy manufacturer's such as Ameron/PPG, Carboline, Devoe, International, Tnemec, and Sherwin Williams.

Polyethylene Tape Wrap (AWWA C214)

Machine applied tape coating to straight pipe for buried service. The multi-layer coating system is comprised of a butyl rubber adhesive, 20 mil polyethylene tape inner wrap, and one or two 30 mil polyethylene outer wraps. Can be applied to 2" thru 144" diameters.

Above-Ground Coating Systems (AWWA C218)

Spray applied liquid coatings for corrosion protection and excellent UV resistance. Typical coating systems use zinc rich primers, epoxy intermediate coats, and aliphatic urethane finish coat. Urethane finish coat provides excellent color and gloss retention.

Polyurethane Linings & Coatings (AWWA C222)

100% solids aromatic urethane coatings for the internal and external protection of buried pipelines. Polyurethane coatings can be formulated for many different service conditions, such as for potable water, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. We are approved applicators of the industry's leading products, such as Carboline,LifeLast™ Coatings, Sherwin Williams, Valspar, Chemline and Endura-Flex Products.
