PPG has a dedicated research and development program through which it has developed market-leading marine paints and coatings solutions, many of which work well within the harsh offshore environment.
Among PPG products showcased at Offshore Energy will be the SIGMASHIELD® range and the PITT-CHAR™ XP cryogenic coatings offering.
Donald Le, PPG offshore segment manager, said,“For customers working in the challenging offshore sector, a passive fire product such PITT-CHAR XP [coating] works exceptionally well in environments where durability and corrosion resistance are required in addition to the ability to prevent steel structures from heating up rapidly.”
PPG’s comprehensive protective and marine coatings range features tank linings, zinc-rich primers, general-purpose epoxy primers and durable finishes, combined with its hydrocarbon PFP/cryogenic offering. Visit PPG at Offshore Energy Amsterdam 2014, Oct. 28-29, Hall 11 Stand 11.055.
