is a polymer modified bitumen pipe coating system which combines the ease of hot applied coating processes with a high degree of corrosion protection and offers both reliability and affordability to clients.
In terms of its technical properties, Bituseal® matches and even outperforms 3-layer polyethylene coating.
Bituseal® has an excellent record in gas, water and offshore pipelines.
This system consists of:
Bituseal® Field Joint Membrane
Joints are the weakest link in any pipeline.

Bituseal® Membrane is to cover pipeline joints or repairing damaged sections of coatings.
It can be supplied either in the form of rolls or patches. It is a unique form of cover from both technical and economical viewpoints and a superb substitute for heat shrinkable sleeve.
Apart from Bituseal® system it is also applicable on several other coatings like 3-layer polyethylene, bitumen enamel and coal tar with great consistency.
