HPC® COATING AT VANCOUVER SHIPYARDS
SHORT DEMONSTRATION VIDEO
Note : This video was taken after the second primer coat of approximately 50 mils DFT and before it had finished steaming off to complete its cure down. This video is courtesy of Doug Robinson, the Health and Safety Officer at Vancouver Shipyards.
A piece of 8 " Schedule 40 pipe was preheated with a Tiger Torch.
A temperature reduction from 350°C on the bare pipe to 170°C after the initial primer coat @ 50 mils DFT was applied.
A temperature reduction from 370°C on the bare pipe to 90°C after the second primer coat @ 50 mils DFT was applied. ( Video )
A temperature reduction from 395°C on the bare pipe to 55°C after the build coat @ 100 mils DFT was applied.
A temperature reduction from 400°C on the bare pipe to 50°C after the final build coat @ 250 mils DFT TOTAL was applied.
Of significant interest is the fact that HPC® COATING can be applied to an in service surface without the necessity of an expensive shut down of operations. This applies to both initial application and any maintenance.
