Podcasts: MP Interview Series

Podcasts from the MP Interview Series explore the impact of COVID-19 on the corrosion control industry.

Inherent Challenges with Fireproofing Galvanized Steel

The galvanized steel and fireproofing system must perform in unison while in service and, if necessary, during a fire. Factors within the galvanization and surface preparation process influence the system’s ability to perform.

NACE Board Votes Unanimously in Favor of Combination with SSPC

On Saturday, March 14, NACE International’s Board of Directors voted unanimously in favor of the resolution to bring the combination of NACE and SSPC to a member vote.

Superhydrophobic Coating Developed for Offshore Drilling Pipes

Materials scientists at the U.S. Southwest Research Institute have developed a new superhydrophobic coating and a process for applying it to the internal surface of long tubular structures, which helps prevent offshore drilling pipes from being clogged by various substances.

Award-Winning Water Tower Welcomes All to Fort Lauderdale

The tower’s future looked bleak, but it was saved when local residents were successful in rallying for its restoration instead. Now, the colorful and newly coated tower welcomes everyone to the coastal Florida city.

Composite Repair System Preserves Florida Oil Tank

When the plant manager for a Florida oil and gas operating company discovered three holes in a sour crude oil tank, this emergency repair solution allowed the client to avoid total tank replacement.

Failure of FBE Coatings in Gas Transporting Pipelines

Utilizing various analytical techniques, this article focuses on a failure investigation of both liquid epoxy and fusion-bonded epoxy coatings for internal applications in sour gas pipelines.

Final Report Issued on Fatal New Zealand Cruise Ship Blast

New Zealand’s Transport Accident Investigation Commission published its final report on a fatal accident involving the massive Emerald Princess cruise vessel, in which a nitrogen cylinder burst and fatally injured a nearby crew member.

Haiti Pier Preserved with New Coatings, Dust-Free Prep

In this case study, the contractor was asked to install a new deck coating system to mitigate any potential corrosion and protect against the impact of heavy foot traffic during the peak summer travel season.

Corrosion Basics: Effects of Coating on Corrosion and Cathodic Protection

The application of a coating can greatly reduce the amount of current required to obtain cathodic protection. In addition, good coating can significantly improve attenuation characteristics along a pipeline.

Salt Spray Corrosion Performances of Amorphous Al-Ti-Ni Coatings

The effects of power on the obtained coatings were investigated using a salt spray corrosion test, with results showing that porosity and cracks on the arc-sprayed coatings were significantly eliminated with the increase in power.

VCIs as Alternative Corrosion Inhibitor Technologies

The use of vapor corrosion inhibitors in coating formulations has shown that in many systems, they can replace the older technology or significantly improve the performance of the system by working in synergy with the existing inhibitors.

Self-Healing Additives Boost Protective Coatings

The new additive system is comprised of a liquid healing agent encapsulated by a polymeric shell, which upon incorporation into a coating formulation can impart self-healing functionality to the coating. The formulation consists of an epoxy resin, a polar diluent, a corrosion inhibitor, and an adhesion promoter.

Hybrid Nanocoating Extends Life of Industrial Coating Systems

The single component, humidity cured, polyurethane/polyurea hybrid nanocoating penetrates into the pores and voids of new or highly oxidized paint systems to form a hard, protective topcoat surface.

Thixotropic Gel Halts Subsea Corrosion of Carbon Steel

The FlexGel range of products are designed to halt the corrosion of carbon steel in subsea flexible and steel risers in the area of an outer sheath/coating damage. The innovation displaces oxygenated seawater from the region of the damage and replaces it with a noncorrosive gel.
