| High Performance Coatings That
After collecting input from major end-users, paint manufacturers, and distributors, we have developed four premium paint options with reduced standard pricing. This standardized offering meets 90% of the past special painting requirements. These 4 Paint options enable improved pricing and shorter lead times by using paints that are easier to apply. The premium paint option is being offered for pipe and fittings. Our standard primer remains unchanged.
four OEM paints are:
859EZ: Two-Part Zinc Rich Epoxy. Carboline
893SG: Two-Part Polyamide Epoxy. Carboline
133HB: An Aliphatic Acrylic-Polyester Polyurethane. Carboline
Thermaline 450: A High-Temperature Phenolic Amine Cured Epoxy
Novalac. Note: Normal shipping and handling can cause paint damage that requires touch-up at the job site.
Costs associated with paint touch-up are for Buyer's account.
Carboline 859EZ: Two-Part Zinc Rich Epoxy.
Carboline 893SG: Two-Part Polyamide Epoxy.
Carboline 133HB: An Aliphatic Acrylic-Polyester Polyurethane.
Carboline Thermaline 450: A High-Temperature Phenolic Amine Cured Epoxy Novalac.
Note: Normal shipping and handling can cause paint damage that requires touch-up at the job site. Costs associated with paint touch-up are for Buyer's account.
These paints are offered in the following 2 & 3 coat system combinations.
|Frequently Asked Questions
|Q1 -||Is paint always the right solution to the external corrosion protection of lined pipe?|
|Piping with dissimilar metals such as
stainless steel pipe with steel or ductile iron flanges would be better
if ordered with galvanized flanges when used in outside coastal
|Q2 -||Can I get OEM coatings in different colors?|
|The final coat is available in custom
colors except for the Thermaline 450 system, which is available in Red
|Q3 -||Why is organic rather than inorganic Zinc part of OEM coatings?|
|The organic Zinc 8701 provides
consistent adhesion to subsequent coatings irrespective of its cure
state when it is overcoated. All inorganic or organic Zincs are less
"noble" than steel and have the same purpose of sacrificing
themselves to cathodically or galvanically protect iron or steel.
|Q4 -||What PH range of periodic splash of acid or Alkali solutions should Thermaline 450 start being considered?|
|When periodic splash of PH < 6 or PH
> 10 of fluid becomes likely.
|Q5 -||Why is Thermaline 450 shown as a three coat price when product literature shows it can be applied in two coats?|
|The material expense of Thermaline 450
precludes it from being supplied as a two coat price.
|Q6 -||When in doubt what system should be provided, why not always defer to Thermaline 450 with its better alkali / Acid splash and temperature resistance?|
|The Zinc in 859EZ with other paint
systems helps protect areas where pipe has nicks or scrapes to bare
metal when used in a coastal environment.
|Q7 -||Where can I get a recommendation for a paint system?|
