Our mission is to provide the Australian energy pipeline industry with an independent pipeline coating testing facility that has the capability and capacity required to fulfil the growing needs of industry nationwide.
We can conduct testing to support pipeline coating selection and development.
We are a commercial, independent coating test facility available for coating manufacturers, suppliers, applicators and end users of the pipeline industry in Australia.
We support research into pipeline coatings and corrosion inhibitors.
We can carry out standard tests such as ASTM, NACE, ISO, AS/NZS and other specific tests.
The energy pipeline industry has a ‘dream’ to economically extend the safe operational life of their pipelines from 30 to 100 years. I believe that our technology will help them to achieve it.
