ChTPZ starts making nano-coated LDPs

May 20, 2014. ChTPZ Group started mass production of large-diameter pipes with a three-layer, corrosion-resistant polyethylene coating based on nano-modified materials made by Rosnano Metaclay. These unique materials are expected to replace their foreign counterparts on the domestic market, the enterprise’s press service says.

Russian high-density polyethylene is modified with the help of nanosilicates and has the properties necessary for making pipes that are resistant to heat, wear, and cracking and stay flexible in low temperatures.

The first industrial-scale shipments of nano-coated pipes will be made to Gazprom.
