  • No cathodic disbondment, osmosis or MIC

Certified and patented technology

STOPAQ® Corrosion Prevention & Sealant systems are certified according to the KIWA BRL k911/02, TUV Nord for the ISO 12068, class C50. The system are approved and tested from minus 45°C to 95°C according to ISO 21809-3. Stopaq is NSF/ANSI 61 approved with additional offshore approvals from the Southwest Institute for smoke and toxicity.

Why Stopaq?

STOPAQ's primary layers within a system consist of a fully amorphous, non-cross-linkable, non-polar polymer composition which is totally impermeable once applied.

STOPAQ’s primary layers within a system consist of a fully amorphous, non-cross-linkable, non-polar polymer composition which is totally impermeable once applied. It is impenetrable to water, oxygen and bacteria, the elements that commonly cause corrosion. Unlike conventional coating types, the STOPAQ compound features a liquid-like behavior to flow and ensure a full wetting of the entire surface of a substrate. This behavior does not change with time, meaning that STOPAQ retains its corrosion preventative properties (non-ageing).  STOPAQ provides superior adhesive to any surface (steel pipe or existing coating) through a permanent molecular bonding with the substrate. With a glass transition temperature of -67°C, STOPAQ will flow and adhere even in the coldest working environments, and it will self-heal in case of minor damages.
