At STS, we work with the Sociedad Española de Revestimiento de Tubos S.L. (Spanish Society of Pipe Coating or SERT) to coat our pipes. SERT’s premises, created in 1993, are within the STS complex itself, providing exterior coating with hot-melt Extruded Polyethylene, using a 2 or 3 layer system, as well as with Polypropylene, Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) and Polyurethane (PUR). For interior coating, alimentary epoxy paint suitable for drinking water is used, and other epoxy paints are used for gas, oil and various applications.
Both the exterior and interior can be painted in various colours and thickness according to international standards (EN; DIN; AFNOR; UNE; API) in addition to the customer’s own specifications.
