Tapecoat TC 20: Advanced Hot Applied Coal Tar Tape Coating for Pipeline Protection


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , ,


Introducing Tapecoat TC 20, a highly effective 58 mil hot-applied, below-grade coal tar tape coating, meticulously designed to offer exceptional soil stress resistance on pipelines with service temperatures up to 120°F (49°C). Since its inception in 1941, TC 20 has been a trusted solution for preventing corrosion and electrolysis on various metal substrates. Its robust composition makes Tapecoat TC 20 not just durable but also resistant to abrasion and impact, making it an ideal choice for small diameter directional boring applications.

The versatility of TC 20 is evident in its application flexibility, as it can be applied in temperatures as low as 0°F. For optimal adherence and performance, TC 20 requires the use of a wide-mouth propane torch during application to preheat both the pipe and the tape. Additionally, a primer is necessary prior to its application, ensuring maximum efficiency and protection.

Key Features:

  1. Highly Resistant: TC 20 provides superior resistance to soil stress, making it perfect for below-grade pipeline protection.
  2. Versatile Temperature Application: Can be effectively applied in conditions as low as 0°F, ensuring reliability in various climates.
  3. Robust Protection: Since 1941, TC 20 has been safeguarding against corrosion and electrolysis, proving its long-standing effectiveness.
  4. Impact and Abrasion Resistant: Designed to withstand tough conditions, making it suitable for small diameter directional boring.
  5. Broad Use Cases: Ideal for new construction, reconditioning, coating girth-welds, bends, tees, and fittings, as well as mainline or girth weld coating for directional boring of small diameter pipes.
  6. Substrate Compatibility: Compatible with a wide range of materials including Steel, Stainless Steel, Ductile Iron, and coatings like FBE and PE.

Technical Advantages: Tapecoat TC 20’s resistance to substances like gasoline and oil makes it a prime choice for service stations, terminals, bulk stations, producing fields, and similar locations. This coating is not just a protective layer; it’s a testament to Tapecoat’s commitment to innovation and durability in pipeline protection. The TC 20 stands out as a versatile, robust, and reliable solution for a wide array of pipeline protection needs.
