Corrosion coating adds to petrochemical safety
Petrochemical plants are expected to remain safely and efficiently operational for decades, with little downtime and unplanned maintenance. To protect equipment from corrosion, three separate coatings are traditionally used, often in a zinc/epoxy/urethane combination. However, epoxy and urethane can both emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), while urethane topcoats can create slick walking surfaces.
Applying traditional coatings can stop production for days, since they usually require substantial metal surface preparation, a prime coat and two topcoats with at least eight hours of drying time between each
