Coating Virtually Eliminates Pipe Coating Complexity

Published on 2008-11-10. Author : SpecialChem

SIntertherm® 898® CSA is the new product from International® Paint which offers protection from -165°C to +565°C and is designed for coating externals of pipework in new construction.

Instead of categorising paint systems by temperature range and using different paint systems in each range, Intertherm 898 CSA makes it possible to specify one product from cryogenic service temperatures -165°C (-265°F) through to some of the highest temperatures pipework is likely to experience 565°C (1050°F).

In one application using standard application equipment, complexity in coating application is reduced and fabrication throughput improved. This reduction in coating complexity offers many benefits from straight forward reduction in cost in terms of factory throughput and also the more intangible, but equally important, reduction in selection errors and reduced workload due to simplification of specification.

In situ, Intertherm 898 CSA out performs traditional high heat systems in anti-corrosive performance and also out performs traditional corrosion resistant systems as it offers performance at higher temperatures.
