Finding a suitable coating system which can
provide long-term maintenance-free corrosion protection for deck steam pipes in the Marine Industry has long been a major problem for all ship owners. Although they take up little space onboard, they are of vital importance to ship operations. They have a unique environment of operating at high temperature whilst being exposed to a hot saltwater atmosphere and UV attack.
Over the years many systems have been tested and have failed with no long-term solution being found. The majority of conventional paint systems which have been utilised only offer a short-term solution and regularly require to be recoated.
However, Chemco have now found a solution to this problem through the use of its innovative wet & rust tolerant product Epo-chem™ RL 500PF which offers long-term maintenance-free protection. This unique system can be applied and can operate at temperatures up to 150°C; far beyond the capabilities of other ‘surface tolerant’ epoxies. RL 500PF has excellent thermal expansion and contraction capabilities, a factor which along with the heat, causes most conventional paint systems to fail.
Almost all major shipping companies have begun to utilize this revolutionary coating system as the product to coat their deck steam pipes.
