Buried Service Coating Texas

Cor-Pro Systems provides the top-of-the-line buried services coating in Texas and nearby Gulf Coast areas.

Several factors affect the longevity of a buried service.  These include quality of construction and protective coating systems, nature of the environment, operating conditions, and frequency and quality of maintenance, to name a few.

Among those mentioned the one factor that significantly affects the buried service long-term integrity is the effectiveness of its coating system.  Ruptures and leaks are a result of coating deterioration or failure.

In the 2000 estimate, about 24% of the 2.2 million miles of pipelines in the U.S. are more than 50 years old. This pipeline ageing results to deterioration and eventual damage.

Long-term integrity of buried pipelines relies on the effectiveness of buried services coating Texas.

Since 1985, Cor-Pro always over delivers by providing not only effective buried services coating management but also superior services by its highly trained engineers and personnel.

Cor-Pro remains the leader in corrosion protection methods in Texas and nearby Gulf Coast areas because they are reliable and dependable.

External Coating For Buried Services

This section provides the standard practices for the selection, testing and evaluation, inspection, handling, storage, and installation of external coating systems for buried services.

External coating controls corrosion through isolation of the external surface of the buried service from the environment, to improve current distribution, and to lessen the cathodic protection current requirements.

To be achieve these functions, the buried services coating must be appropriately selected, handled, applied, and installed.

Buried services coatings Texas must have the following desirable characteristics:

  • Effective moisture barrier
  • Effective electrical insulator
  • Buried service application with minimal defects
  • Application can be through a method that does not alter the properties of the buried service
  • Must have good adhesion to buried service surface
  • Can resist development of holidays through time
  • Can maintain constant electrical resistivity with time
  • Can resist disbanding
  • Can withstand damage during handling, storage, and installation
  • Can repel chemical degradation
  • Must be able to retain physical characteristic
  • Offers ease of repair
  • Environmentally-friendly

Considerations For Buried Services Coating

Handling and Storage

For equipment applied with coatings before installation, personnel should be aware of the proper handling and storage to ensure that the buried services coating does not deteriorate.

Handling the equipment with the use of proper pads and slings can minimize damage.  Similarly, stored the buried services should have internal and external protection from atmospheric corrosion and coating deterioration.


Buried services should have qualified personnel that ensure every phase of coating operation goes smoothly and that international guidelines and standard practices are in check.

Conformance to specifications must be periodically checked using appropriate testing procedures.  This should be present during surface preparation, primer application, coating thickness temperature, and bonding.

To determine coating flaws undetected visually, holiday detectors is highly recommended.  Operation of the holiday detectors must be in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and must be at a voltage level suitable to the electrical characteristics of the coating system used.


To maintain the corrosion protection of buried services during installation, tie-ins, joints, and fittings should use coatings with a material compatible with the existing coating.

Prior to installation, equipment should undergo inspection and defects, if any, should undergo repair using materials compatible with existing buried services coating.

Special consideration should also be in place for the ditch bottom, as it should be free of rock and other foreign materials that may cause external damage or electrical shielding.

Similarly, careful backfilling is highly recommended so that debris and rocks do not hit and damage the buried services coating.
