A new epoxy coating offers high-temperature protection for oil and gas production equipment and other equipment operating under continuous immersion, Belzona announced.

Belzona 1523 is a two-part spray-applied epoxy coating for equipment in continuous water and hydrocarbon mixture immersion at temperatures up to 140°C (284°F).


Belzona's new two-part spray applied epoxy coating protects equipment in high-temperature, continuous-immersion environments, the company says.

The company says the coating can also withstand steam-out processes up to 210°C (410°F) and rapid depressurization.

Application Features

According to the company, the coating provides corrosion and chemical resistance and comes in light colors for easy inspection in dark vessels.

Applied using heated airless spray equipment, the two-coat application doesn't require flash blasting between coatings, Belzona says.

The solvent-free product can be applied in confined spaces and cures at room temperature. No separate post-cure is needed, because the product's post-cure mechanism activates at service temperatures, according to the company.

wft gauge is being used improperly in the photo. The gauge should be placed in parallel to the curvature to keep from bridging the substrate.

Should have the caption...NOT REAL PAINTERS, PAID ACTORS..Good catch, I think I like the miscues as they keep your mind sharp..

Bryan and Jesse thank you for pointing this out. This staged photo would not be an example of how to measure WFT and we have now supplied a different image to go with the article to avoid confusion. We hope this will not deter you from finding out more on our website.
