test vs reality


You might meet the standards but what about reality?

Our Mission & Vision


Are we designing for the standard or for reality?

the standard

We are very much aware of the coating’s performance in laboratory conditions, but how often are we faced with those in reality? Impact resistance, holiday detection, peel strength, cathodic disbondment and many more parameters are tested in artificial conditions.

the reality

On site challenges make us wonder: are we designing for the standard or for reality? STOPAQ is purpose designed by practical
engineers and is always challenging the rules in order to comply with reality.

Our latest article on standards and approvals

Purpose designed

  • Polyisobutene (PIB) based coating
  • with self-healing properties
  • impervious layer to oxygen, water and MIC
  • permanent adhesion to the surface
  • simple and easy to apply
  • maintenance free asset protection
  • 90% saved on surface preparation costs
  • up to 95% reduced waste production

how about

coating a 90°C pipe without shutting it down?

Or a 6°C surface with a a -20°C atmospheric temperature? Or a pitted surface with minimum surface preparations? How often do we test the product and its performance according to the versatile application conditions in reality?

Our reality in this case was a 90°C pipe and with limited access to all components, the client also required a solution flexible enough to withstand vibrations, flexing and movement of equipment. STOPAQ provided a simple and easy to apply solution that will last for the long term.
