High Temperature, High Pressure, Depressurization Testing of Coating Systems Prior to Large Scale Installation

Introduction Industrial and marine protective coatings can provide decades of corrosion protection, provided the correct coating system is selected for the prevailing service environment, and that the coating system remains attached to the substrate it was designed to protect. Industrial coatings used in the water, wastewater, oil and gas, and nuclear power industries may be …

Inorganic Zinc-Rich Primers vs. Organic Zinc-Rich Primers: What’s the Difference?

Before describing the difference between inorganic zinc-rich coatings and organic zinc-rich coatings, an explanation of galvanic protection is necessary.  Zinc-rich coatings are used to protect steel substrates from corroding by employing some barrier protection but primarily sacrificial or cathodic protection.  A corrosion cell contains four elements (oxygen is assumed to be present): anode, cathode, metallic …
