Coating systems are critical in the mitigation of corrosion on pipelines and their integrated parts.
Epoxies offer a multitude of positive characteristics including: high adhesion at a chemical level,
excellent abrasion resistance, and reduced water permeation rates when compared to vinyl
esters. A newly engineered cold weather epoxy (“Epoxy-20F”) improves upon these epoxy
characteristics and exceeds that of vinyl esters.
Self-healing coatings for corrosion protection refer to those with the ability to sense the corrosive environment and to release preloaded inhibitors from the coating matrix by a controlled mode. In this work, SiO2 nanoparticle based polyelectrolyte nanocontainers were fabricated by the LbL method to store corrosion inhibitor BTA.
It is known that carbon steels in Fuel Grade Ethanol (FGE) has pitting corrosion and active path corrosion-type stress corrosion cracking (SCC) susceptibility. In the current work, susceptibility of pitting and SCC of two types of X52 grade carbon steel were investigated by immersion testing and Slow Strain Rate Testing (SSRT).
