Pittsburgh, PA, 30 April 2015. PPG Protective & Marine Coatings will exhibit at next weeks’ Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2015 in Houston. One focus at the event will be on PITT-CHAR® XP, a dual-performance cryogenic spill protection (CSP) coating which protects against extremely high and low temperatures in marine and industrial environments.
Designed as a flexible epoxy-based intumescent passive fire protective (PFP) coating, PITT-CHAR XP can prevent steel structures from heating up rapidly in the event of a fire by providing insulative protection against high temperatures.
Donald Le, Global Offshore Segment Manager, will attend the event along with Richard Holliday, PPG’s newly appointed Global Hydrocarbon PFP Director. Mr Le said:
“With growing interest in LNG projects balanced with budget cuts widespread across the Oil & Gas industry, owners and engineers need to minimize fabrication and construction spend wherever possible. When it comes to PFP and CSP, using PITT-CHAR® XP’s unique patented flexible resin system can dramatically enhance production schedules while reducing costs against traditional duplex systems and avoiding cracking and damage during transportation and erection.”
PPG’s comprehensive protective coatings range features outstanding tank linings, zinc-rich primers, general-purpose epoxy primers, splash zone and subsea coatings and durable finishes, combined with its’ hydrocarbon PFP/ cryogenic offering.
Visit PPG at OTC 2015, 4-7 May, Booth 3509.
