Since 1982, there has been a move to Thermal Sprayed Aluminum (TSA) coating in the “splash zone” of offshore structures. Our experience indicates that an experience applicator, good surface preparation and quality of wire combined to achieve required thickness and apply the sealer to seal the entire surface.
This paper will consider the performance and relevance to static situations of the key types of Cathodic dip painting (CDP) Antifoulings (Rosin Modified types), the current tin free polishing types (typically acrylates of various types), and low energy surface types. Both field experience and laboratory work will be considered.
Conference Paper - This paper describes the requirements of the standard, additional inspection points, and several uses of the standard in the field where clear specification language was imperative to successful project completion. NACE 5/SSPC-SP 12 standard confined to water jetting - which makes use of ultra-high pressure water that is nonabrasive. Four levels of visible post-cleaning condition and three levels of non-visible condition are defined.
