Snoozing Not Losing: Novel IMM Coatings with Increased Productivity for CUI Service

by Mike O’Donoghue, Ph.D.; Vijay Datta, MS; George Sykes; Graeme Ross and Ana Sanséau-Blanchard, M.Chem; AkzoNobel

This article focuses on a novel multi-polymeric matrix coating for corrosion under insulation (CUI) service that will “snooze” as it protects process pipes, valves and vessels that might lay around for months in ambient conditions. On the other hand, the novel IMM coating also goes into a full weaponized mode when it protects the same steel exposed to cryogenic conditions or hot CUI service.
