Steel Coating Materials e level of surface preparation is tightly correlated with the selection of a new coatings and linings system and its applica- tion, which may need to be done quickly after surface prepa- ration to avoid issues, such as oxidation. is is often referred to as " holding the blast." On many steel jobsites, besides traditional three-coat systems, a new coating system may involve polyurea and polyurethane/polyurea hybrid coatings. "In the petroleum industry, both polyurethanes and polyurea coatings are being used for both external and internal pipe coatings," said PMC's Mahaffey. He noted that while polyurea can be higher priced, it does offer longer service life and specialized properties. "Areas that are trending toward polyureas are specialized applications, such as secondary food contact, drinking water systems, and even anti-graffiti coatings, where the polyurea makes graffiti easy to be removed." New technologies, such as high-solids, lower VOC (volatile organic compound) products, and others with superior physical properties, though, are driving changes in select steel sectors, as new government regulations are driving improved environmental performance. "In the water storage tank industry, we've seen a change from zinc-epoxy-urethane to the topcoat being a fluoropolymer for better UV [ultraviolet] and color/gloss retention to increase Trends in steel coatings include high solids and low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Induron is one manufacturer offering thicker film build with its ceramic pigments. Steely Resolve continued on page 18 Steely Resolve
