Precision. Accuracy. Quality.

Compass Bending Ltd. is a new company open for business in the Oil & Gas pipe bending industry to service pipeline and facility construction projects.


We offer an array of options for coating pipe bends. We supply holiday-free  polyethylene (YJ and UB) coated pipe bends as well as several types of post-bend spray-on coating, both external and internal. Compass Bending also provides tape wrap, shrink sleeves and polyurethane insulation. Insulated bends are usually provided with tape as the outside layer but this can also be shrink sleeves or hardshell (spray-on polyurea). We can supply coating materials and patch kits to ship to site for repairs and for covering field joints.

Prior to coating, pipe bends are prepared with sand blasting to SSPC-SP6 or SSPC-SP10 depending on coating requirements.
Appropriate primers are applied as required (e.g. prior to tape wrap).
All coated bends (including YJ pipe) are patched if necessary and holiday tested before shipping.
YJ1 and UBRA coated bends are patched with K60 shrink sleeves. YJ2K and UB IIISE coated bends are patched with GTS-80 shrink sleeves.
We can supply coating materials and epoxy patch kits for site repairs and field joints. We keep these materials in stock.
We keep the coating manufacturers' spec sheets on file as well as installation guides, general information and MSDS sheets. Call us for copies.
All coatings applied by us come with quality assurance inspection reports.
