Piping & Structures
Protect against corrosion, reduce waste and better manage HSE risks while prolonging the lifetime of equipment or assets.
STOPAQ® is most recognized for its use with piping systems. STOPAQ® Basecoat and STOPAQ® EZ are products designed for application on complex structure geometry.
STOPAQ® can be applied on:
- all metal alloys
- cured liquid coatings
- various rubber types
With over 30 years product lifetime, STOPAQ® is a preferred LCC solution for asset owners.
Superior waste, cost and CO2 reductions – all in one product
By choosing STOPAQ® as a corrosion protection system, your operator will mitigate risk and reduce waste compared to blast and paint by nearly 99%.
STOPAQ® can easily be applied on in-service pipelines, up to 120°C, with no risk of under creep, osmosis, cracking or bridging. STOPAQ® there is need to shut down operations to do maintenance- a huge cost savings.
The CO2 emission reduction using STOPAQ® per m2 when compared to blast and paint is up to 95%.

No Dust, VOC or Noise Application Process
No dust, VOC, noise, or need for anchor pattern pertains to STOPAQ®. The application of the STOPAQ® system is manual, hence no garnet blasting, primer or pre-heating is required. Surface prep ST2 (mechanical hand tool, wire bruks acc. ISO 8501) vs. SA2 (garnet blasting) makes a huge impact in time savings, waste and safety.
Clients often comment that the STOPAQ® corrosion protection system is as easy to use as wallpaper. STOPAQ® is user friendly and lasts at least 30 years. To apply, clean application surface, cut STOPAQ® to size and apply to the desired surface. Adjustments can be made using scissors.
STOPAQ® Basecoat and STOPAQ® EZ are produced with a top layer of visible mesh. The mesh is in place to ensure bonding between the STOPAQ® product and mandatory topcoat.
Topcoats can be 2-component coatings like polysiloxanes, epoxies or polyurethanes, or 1-component coatings like waterborne acrylics. The topcoat ensures UV protection and desired color at surface.
