PPG’s protective and marine coatings business has launched its latest solution for application in extreme operating conditions.
Resistant to temperatures ranging from -321°F to 900°F, PPG HI-TEMP 900 is suitable for application in petrochemical, refining, power, offshore, pulp and paper and other industrial facilities.
It offers multi-purpose, high temperature corrosion protection with high speed of application and handling.
Applicable as a primer, the coating offers a two-component product with complete crosslink curing at ambient temperatures and can be top coated with custom colours. The ability to apply the coating in one coat provides excellent speed of application and handling in the shop.
PPG HI-TEMP 900 is designed to provide excellent surface corrosion resistance and prevent corrosion under insulation (CUI). It has been tested and verified using third-party testing in a multi-phase CUI chamber test. In addition, the coating offers excellent UV stability to prevent corrosion of non-insulated surfaces subject to atmospheric exposure.
Ronald Li, Global HI-TEMP Manager at PPG, said: “Corrosion Under Insulation is one of the industry’s major concerns because it can lead to high costs for refineries and petrochemical facilities in cases of facility shutdowns, environmental issues or personal injury […] PPG HI-TEMP 900 has been designed to resist the severe ‘real world’ conditions of a continually-changing harsh environment and was developed to withstand the repeated cycle of thermal shock, a significant cause of CUI.”
The coating is able to withstand severe cyclic hot-cold conditions without affecting the coating performance.
