This article discusses the need for standardization in wastewater specs and how we as coatings professionals can better support specifying engineers to bring about some consistency.

UHP Waterjetting for New and Aged Steel

by Joao Azevedo, The Sherwin-Williams Company, Portugal

Through performance testing and live project cases, this article confirms that when the proper coating technology is implemented, the use of UHP waterjetting can potentially cut cost and time, reduce project uncertainties and assure high durability corrosion protection at the same level (or better) than the durability expected when using abrasive blasting.

Meeting the Challenges of Offshore Coating Service: Methods & Materials

by Mark B. Dromgool, KTA-Tator Australia Pty Ltd

Due to the risks of hydrocarbon fires or explosions and the fragility of some operating equipment and controls, the surface preparation practices employed widely throughout the coatings industry can oftentimes not be used on offshore structures. Too often this means that less productive and/or less effective surface preparation occurs, which can shorten coating system life spans or adds to the frequency of repainting. This article explores methods and materials that have been adopted by a major Australian offshore oil and gas field operator to reliably clean and prepare surfaces for coating.
