Climate Control in Shipyards

by Don Schnell, Polygon US Corp

Along with changes in coating technology and application techniques has come a demand for tighter parameters for climatic conditions and closer attention to interior climates. This article explores innovations in documentation and inspection techniques to ensure that all parameters have been met.

Polyurethane Pipeline Coatings: Do Changes in Appearance Indicate Changes in Performance?

by Stuart G. Croll, Dr. Chunju Gu and Dr. Vinod Upadhyay, North Dakota State University; and Brent D. Keil, Northwest Pipe Company

Occasionally, construction delays can result in pipe sections remaining aboveground for extended periods of time. Under these atmospheric conditions and exposure to solar UV light, coating properties such as color and gloss may change considerably and naturally raise concerns about diminished protec...

Corrosion: Domesticated and in the Wild

by Carl W. Reed, GPI Laboratories, Inc., and Kat Coronado, International Paint, LLC

This article examines the four predominant sources of corrosion that occur “in the wild” and compares them to observational results found in exposure to accelerated corrosion conditions. By combining these observational attributes to mechanistic attributes previously examined, the use of accelerated...
