The PPG protective and marine coatings business is presenting its new PHENGUARD subsea coating system.
According to the company, the new product combination of PHENGUARD Subsea 610 coating and PHENGUARD Subsea 780 coating is a two-coat subsea system with high-temperature resistance up to 180 C for surfaces with or without insulation.
The new system also has been designed to fulfill the requirements of System 7C, NORSOK M-501 Revision 6*.
“The subsea market is one of the most innovative sectors within the offshore industry, with state-of-the art technologies used for subsea projects worldwide,” said Marcel de Haan, PPG global product specialist for subsea coatings. “One of the main concerns at elevated temperatures is the difference in temperature between internal (e.g., hot oil) and external (e.g., cold seawater) environments.”
“Our coatings experts have utilized the high-performance PHENGUARD product technology to provide a reliable and effective solution to the subsea market in the form of PHENGUARD Subsea 610 and 780,” he addded.
