Step-Change Epoxy Coatings for Pipes, Tanks, Vessels and Railcars

From JPCL, March 2018

By Dr. Mike O’Donoghue; Vijay Datta, Ms and Dr. Ian Fletcher, International Paint LLC.

The authors describe the genesis and performance of a step-change epoxy coating for high heat-resistant service and CUI mitigation. Based on a novel amine epoxy technology platform, this next generation high-temperature coating simplifies coating specifications and is easy to apply on carbon and stainless-steel pipe externals for both insulated (CUI) and non-insulated service. Tolerant of over-application and possessing fast and sub-zero curing characteristics, the novel alkylated amine epoxy coating enhances shop productivity and reduces project costs, thereby eliminating several challenges seen with traditional epoxy phenolic coatings....
