Versathane Amlaird

Versathane Used as Part of Scottish Water’s Amlaird Project

Versathane is a high build solvent free urethane anticorrosive coating designed for the efficient long term protection of steel pipes. FT Pipeline Systems has recently supplied over 20kms of new water mains as part of Scottish Water’s Amlaird project. The pipe will connect the Ayrshire potable water pipeline with Greater Glasgow’s network. The client, Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA) are acting on behalf of Scottish Water in improving the water supply network for over 200,000 people and businesses in the Ayrshire and East Renfrewshire area.

The pipes needed to be measured and cut to meet specific project lay requirements. Each pipe was cut to size, welded back together and repaired with Versathane WRAS approved polyurethane, supplied by Advanced Barrier Coatings and pictured above, to achieve high build film thickness and fast cure to enable shortest return to service for pipeline requirements.
