FORTIDE Epoxy Coatings New In Portfolio - DENSO With Largest Range Of Corrosion Protection Systems

With its various corrosion protection systems, DENSO Group Germany has been setting quality standards on countless pipeline projects worldwide for a century. Under the brand FORTIDE, DENSO Group Germany is expanding its range to include high-performance epoxy coatings. To meet the diverse, ever-increasing demands of pipeline construction, FORTIDE offers durable corrosion protection for a wide range of applications in tough conditions.

FORTIDE-HT is ideally for use at the highest operating temperatures up to +150 °C. Other FORTIDE variants are specially designed for moist surfaces or as internal coatings for tanks or pipelines. All FORTIDE products comply with the international standard ISO 21809-3 and are unified by the DENSO quality guarantee: 100 percent Made in Germany.

Strong tensile strength, easy to apply and fast curing
FORTIDE is suitable for the rehabilitation of pipelines, as a whole pipe coating or for welded joints and complex geometries. The products are characterised by an outstanding coating hardness and exceptional indentation strength. As a brush or spray coating, they are simply applied to the surface in one step, even in high layer thicknesses. FORTIDE is free of volatile solvents and isocyanates. "Epoxy coatings are highly tensile, chemically resistant, fast curing and therefore ensure early commissioning of the pipeline. In addition to its versatile applicability, FORTIDE meets our demands for simplicity, economy and durability and guarantees what our customers especially appreciate about DENSO: the proven quality Made in Germany", says Thomas Kaiser, Managing Director of DENSO Group Germany.

Four product solutions for a wide range of applications

  • FORTIDE-HT | High Temperature: Corrosion protection of pipelines at maximum operating temperatures of up to +150 °C. For pipes transporting particularly hot media or exposed to very high ambient temperatures.
  • FORTIDE-ST | Standard Temperature: Corrosion protection for pipelines at operating temperatures up to +95 °C.
  • FORTIDE-TL | Tank Lining: Internal coating for tanks and pipelines with exceptional chemical and water resistance, e.g. against crude oil, various hydrocarbons, acids, lyes and waste water.
  • FORTIDE-WS | Wet Surface: Specifically for use on wet surfaces, which are often a challenge, for example, when rehabilitating old coatings during pipeline operation.

DENSO offers largest range of corrosion protection systems
With the new FORTIDE epoxy coatings, DENSO Group Germany as manufacturer offers the most comprehensive product portfolio for passive corrosion protection of pipelines. " Along with FORTIDE, we cover all relevant corrosion protection systems with DENSO Petrolatum tapes, DENSOLEN PE/Butyl tapes, DENSOLID Polyurethane coatings, DEKOTEC Heat shrinkable sleeves and the universally applicable SEALID All-in-1, among others. This scope of our product portfolio for passive corrosion protection of pipes and pipelines is unique in the market. We are proud of this", explains Max Wedekind, Managing Director of DENSO Group Germany.
