Corrocoat Japan were previously contacted by a client, to provide a suitable coating for the internals of a pipe, which would operate in a chlorine gas atmosphere at 200°c. Due to the high cost of metals suitable for this environment, a lining system was preferred and offered by Corrocoat Japan. Following a successful 1 year trial in operation, the client provided 2 more pipes to be lined by Corrocoat Japan.
The team selected Corrothane XT; a three-pack cold cured vinyl ester-urethane polymer alloy with glassflake, to protect the pipes. Corrothane XT offers excellent heat and chemical resistance (of 160°C in a liquid environment), as well as protection in an atmospheric environment (up to 260°C). The coating system has been widely adopted as a countermeasure in high temperature and high corrosion environments and the team predict the coating performance will still be in good working condition for more than 5 years in this environment.
