Understanding the key components that cause osmotic blisters is essential to not only applying the proper concrete floor coating, but potentially walking away from a possible high-risk floor. Resinous floor coatings are organic coatings that have limitations. Coating failures are typically linked to moisture in the concrete slab. This can be a problem for resinous floor coatings that aren't moisture tolerant.
There is uncertainty about the best way to determine the corrosion risk for gas-condensate pipelines, and use of chemical inhibitors as mitigation strategy. We present considerations when devising corrosion mitigation and inhibition strategies, as well as a recommended test for inhibitor qualification.
