Overview of coatings for a cyclic-temperature environment. Test method, including a heat cycle between 21 to 300 deg-C simulating the dehydrator operation and exposure to salt spray. The performances of the three coatings were evaluated using this method. Factors to be considered for coating selection in the cyclic-temperature environment are discussed.c
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.
Traditional internal lining schemes for the storage/transport of crude oil & refined fuels may no longer be appropriate. The aggressive nature of crude oil (high temp. & more sour), high purity refined products & increased use of biofuels demand better linings & more certain test results. The focus of this paper is to review the trends in test methodology from the early 1990’s to present.
