What is an integrated weight coating?

The integrated weight coating is an optional fourth layer of the TCP. The materials used for this layer are the base polymer of the TCP (being PE  or PVDF) mixed with heavy particles. Like all other layers in TCP, also the weight coating is fully bonded to the outer coating layer.

Who is Strohm and why does it claim to be the first and leading manufacturer of TCP?

Airborne International, as former parent company of Strohm, developed the concept of TCP in 1999. Strohm, at the time called Airborne Oil & Gas, was set up as dedicated Business Unit under Airborne International to commercialize and further develop TCP. As such, Strohm was the first company to have developed TCP in the world. Airborne Oil & Gas became an independent company in 2014, and rebranded to Strohm in 2020. Today, we have the largest track record with most pipes in operation and several records including the world`s deepest TCP in 2140 meters water depth, and the world`s first TCP Flowline for hydrocarbon service.
