https://www.excelplas.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Excelplas-A4-Brochure-4pp-Coating-NTs.pdf

Critical Questions for Protective Coatings for Asset Protection in Oil & Gas, LNG:

  • Why is the coating not stopping corrosion?
  • Why is the coating delaminating or blistering?
  • Has the coating been correctly specified / applied?
  • Does the coating meet the manufacturing standard, including properties such as correct hardness/cure, adhesion and thickness?
  • What surface preparation and atmospheric conditions must be achieved to successfully apply the coating?
  • Does the coating have any defects in it? How will these affect performance?
  • Why did the coating fail? Root cause assessment.
  • How can the coating be successfully repaired/remediated so that it doesn’t fail again?

ExcelPlas Labs can answer these questions

A New Breed of Smart Corrosion Inhibitors for Protective Coatings
In a cost analysis with an oil and gas refinery, it was found that just one of their offsite chemical storage tanks costs them $374,000 to repaint every 15 years due to corrosion. Hexigone’s technology has shown to increase metal asset longevity by c. 50% and can therefore increase the coating life cycle of the tank by 7 years, reducing the cost of maintenance per tank by a third.
