From reservoir to tap, 3MTM ScotchkoteTM provides a single source of coatings supply for both new build and maintenance projects to provide asset protection and ensure product purity. 3M is a recognised leader in providing sustainable, economic solutions for maintaining and protecting critical infrastructure. By leveraging more than 50 years of pipe coating experience and unsurpassed research and development capabilities, 3M can help solve the issues which threaten our potable and wastewater systems and improve the efficiency with which these systems operate. 3M Scotchkote Water Infrastructure coatings include Fusion-Bonded (FBE), Liquid Epoxy and Liquid Urethane coatings, as well as low-viscosity primer/sealers. They offer long-term, maintenance-free coating protection and finishing of pipes, tanks, storage reservoirs and ancillary equipment such as pumps and valves, whether in contact with clean or dirty water, and the process chemicals associated with water treatment. The new products are designed specifically for the needs of the water industry and address a wide range of application requirements such as flexibility, adhesion, temperature performance, corrosion resistance and damage protection to suit even the harshest of environments. Whether 3M Scotchkote products are used to help protect new assets or rehabilitate ageing infrastructure, they are designed to help improve both the longevity and efficiency of potable water and wastewater systems. The products may be used to remedy issues such as: • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Epoxy Coating 162PWX has been specifically developed to help provide corrosion resistance in potable water applications. This 100% solids lining can be spray- applied on the internal linings of metal pipes, tanks, vessels and other equipment. Ease of use, combined with excellent corrosion and chemical resistance, make this an extremely versatile product for infrastructure protection. It has been extensively tested and meets the requirements of international recognised potable water standards such as: AU/NZS 4020, NSF/ANSI 61 and WRAS. It has been designed to be applied by plural feed heated airless spray into steel, ductile and cat iron surfaces and sealcoat for CML lined pipe. • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Epoxy Sealer SP 810 is a low viscosity primer/ sealer for use with concrete and cementitious surfaces applied by brush or roller, prior to application of other 3MTM ScotchkoteTM solvent-free epoxy systems. • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Epoxy Coating KSIR88 is a high-performance solvent-based coating for pumps, valves, fittings, tanks and pipelines applied by brush, roller or airless spray; it combines good application characteristics with excellent corrosion protection and chemical resistance for steel surfaces. • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Fusion-Bonded Epoxy Coating 206N is a baked-on epoxy coating that can be custom applied to protect pipelines (external and internal) and a variety of components including valves, pumps, tapping saddles, pipe appurtenances, manifolds, sewage aerators, tanks, pipe hangers, ladders, hydrants, cast iron risers and flow meters from corrosion. It has been designed to be applied by manual flocking, electrostatic spray or fluid bed for steel surfaces. • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Urethane Coating 165HB is a two component 100% solids urethane coating system formulated to combine outstanding abrasion and impact resistance with a significant degree of flexibility. Used for diverse applications including internal and external protection of steel and concrete pipes, tanks, and vessels, bridges and related building and engineering structures and fabrications, it is suitable for a variety of immersion conditions including sea, foul and raw water; and also in chemically polluted, marine or underground environments. It has been designed to be applied by plural feed heated airless spray into steel or pre-primer concrete surfaces. • 3MTM ScotchkoteTM Urethane Sealer 165CS has been specifically developed as a low viscosity primer/ sealer for concrete and cementitious surfaces prior to application of other 3MTM ScotchkoteTM urethane coatings systems. 3M will provide information on this product range during the Ozwater'12 Exhibition. Expressions of interest from distributors and applicators for these solutions are being received by 3M Australia at the moment.

Aerzen now has four different technologies to offer. The market-leading Delta blower package and 100% oil-free screw compressor packages are now joined by the new Delta Hybrid Rotary Lobe Compressors, as well as High Efficiency Turbo units. This year not only sees Aerzen launch two new product technologies, but also sees the formation of Aerzen Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary. After nearly 40 years of Aerzen blowers being supplied and serviced in the Australian market through distributors, January 2012 saw Aerzen opening its own wholly owned subsidiary -- Aerzen Australia Pty Ltd. Located in Dandenong, Victoria, Aerzen Australia will be able to directly provide the complete Aerzen product range, including rotary lobe blowers, oil-free screw compressors, the new Hybrid lobe compressors, process gas screw compressors, gas meters and the new Aerzen Turbo blowers.
