Hot applied coal tar tape
A hot applied coal tar coating in tape form, composed of specially formulated  plasticized  coal tar  coating   completely saturated and 

bonded to both sides of a high tensile strength fabric.

Himtape : Hot Applied Coal Tar TapeHimtape is used to protect underground gas, oil and water pipelines along with buried metal surface from corrosion and electrolysis.

As it is a pre fabricated coal tar tape, its application is easy and environment friendly and it provides uniform coating thickness. It provides a long term protection to pipelines due to its excellent physical and chemical properties.

It conforms to AWWA C203 and IS 15337(2003).

Available in standard thickness of 2 mm, 3 mm and 4 mm in roll form packed in cardboard / wooden boxes.


Himtape is used to protect underground or submerged metal surface from corrosion and electrolysis.
It is commonly used in :

  • Oil and gas pipelines
