Oil and gas transmission and distribution pipelines are a critical part of worldwide infrastructures. Construction activity has undergone unprecedented increases in the last few years due to demand and population growth. Hundreds of thousands of kilometers of new crude oil and natural gas pipelines are either being built, planned or being studied globally. Investment in pipeline construction is extremely high. Protecting such valuable assets against corrosion and other damage presents a technical challenge.
Hard Shell LIQUID ARMOUR® INDUSTRIAL protects pipelines from heavy soil loads or any other physical impact, due to its high tensile strength, tear strength and flexibility.
Hard Shell LIQUID ARMOUR® INDUSTRIAL has high elasticity with high surface hardness which results in exceptional resistance against abrasion during the construction and installation process or when exposed to harsh environments.
When pipelines are left without protection they are exposed to corrosion and abrasion which causes leaks and spillages leading to serious impacts on both life and the environment. Pipeline coating is one of the most adequate and reliable methods used by industries today. It is a cost effective and feasible solution to augment the lifespan of pipelines. Liquid Armour® provides a sustainable protective lining that protect pipelines from the damage and give them a long and durable life.
Liquid Armour® coatings provide UV protection, anti-corrosion protection and anti-abrasion protection to pipe lines and piling structures with excellent resistance when immersed in salt water and chemicals. It is designed to prevent from abrasion and corrosion to protect steel, concrete, wood and various other substrates.
It serves as a cost-effective and low-maintenance solution that offers ample and reliable protection. Liquid Armour® is designed to protect both the internal and external surfaces of pipelines. It protects the drinking water pipelines as well as the pipelines which are used for transporting sea water, raw water, sewage, waste water and water-based slurries. Liquid Armour® is also helpful for the lined pipe to maintain drinking water purity.
Liquid Armour® also offers the best solution for the pipelines carrying refined products like diesel oil, fuel oil, aviation fuel, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), petrol, kerosene etc.
Through technological advancements using revolutionizing nano technology we have been able to consistently produce high-end quality pipeline coatings.Read More

LIQUID ARMOUR® ensures Blast and ballistic protection of vessel, munitions magazines, and storage. It is neutrally buoyant and is significantly lighter weight than traditional methods of blast protection. LIQUID ARMOUR® provides non-skid surfaces for all working areas while also providing excellent protection against corrosion and abrasion with it’s self-healing properties. LIQUID ARMOUR® is an ideal solution for creating safe rooms for crew travelling in high risk regions.Read More
The unparalleled weight to protection ratio of LIQUID ARMOUR® allows for a reduction in vehicle weight while maintaining or increasing blast and ballistic capabilities. LIQUID ARMOUR® provides for improved vehicle mobility and durability, with enhanced protection for personnel; a true alternative to traditional up-armoring systems.Read More
LIQUID ARMOUR® reinforcement of the primary ring of protection, enhances the stand off distance of possible threats to government buildings, embassies, military bases, barracks, bunkers, armories, and checkpoints.
During a blast event, LIQUID ARMOUR® coated exterior walls and surfaces absorb blast impacts to reinforce and maintain structural integrity and prevent collapse. LIQUID ARMOUR® coated interior surfaces prevent spalling and fragmentation penetration, which is a leading cause of casualties.
LIQUID ARMOUR® can be used to create “Safe” or “Panic” rooms to protect personnel during a terrorist threat or natural disaster.Read More
Extreme corrosion can lead to failure of engineered components. These failures can possibly be prevented by a combination of correct material selection and surface coatings. Liquid Armour®- Anti-Corrosion coatings protect the components against degradation due to salt spray, moisture, oxidation or exposure to different types of environmental and industrial chemicals. Liquid Armour® coating provides added protection to the surfaces and performs as a barrier to impede the contact between chemical composites or corrosive materials. Liquid Armour® coatings also provide a bonus of abrasion resistance, non-stick performance and chemical protection.
Liquid Armour® Coatings with anti-corrosive properties ensure the substrate to have the longest possible lifespan. It provides excellent adhesion to all types of surfaces. It is the revolutionizing protection engineered with advance nano technology.
Liquid Armour® coating system is highly durable, seamless, UV resistant, weather resistant, protective layer and easily applied by specialized spray gun.
Liquid Armour® coating is highly recommended for chemical plants, oil refineries, public utility works, and other facilities for anti-corrosion protection for the components. Also it can be used to enhance the lifespan of marine assets like ships, offshore oil drilling rigs and production platforms and other structures.
