This European Standard defines the application of factory applied external two layer extruded polyethylene based coatings for the corrosion protection of tubes and pipeline components.
External extruded polyethylene coating can be used for the protection of buried or submerged tubes service at temperatures up to + 60 °C for type 1 and + 30 °C for type 2.
The coatings in this standard can be applied to longitudinally or spirally welded and to seamless steel tubes and components used for the construction of pipelines for conveying liquids or gases.
Tubes coated with this type of coating may be further protected by means of cathodic protection.
