A major infrastructure project in China which is using powder coatings on the interior of potable water pipes has specified sustainable products supplied by AkzoNobel.

 

The agreement with Guangdong Water involves providing high-performance Resicoat R2 coatings for the Pearl River Delta water resource allocation project – the largest investment in a water diversion project in the history of Guangdong Province.

 

Designed to ensure the supply of clean and safe potable water to more than 50 million people, the landmark project will feature the highest water transmission pressure and the longest shield tunnel in the world. It consists of a mainline, a branch line, three pumping stations and four storage reservoirs.

 

“We have rich global experience in drinking water and pipeline projects and will continue to play our part in improving people’s lives through our eco-premium and high-performance solutions,” says Daniela Vlad, Director of AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business. “We’re excited to be contributing to this significant project by supplying products that will provide comprehensive protection to the new water pipeline.”

 

The company’s Resicoat R2 coating is specially designed to be used in the drinking water industry, typically being applied to valves and fittings and water pipelines.
