Providing the Water Industry with Better Standards to Protect Welded Steel Tanks
This paper overviews ultra high solids, medium film systems newly recognized by AWWA, demonstrating the ways in which adhering to the standard can deliver a sustainable method for achieving environmentally sound and measurable service life improvements. It provides a source for performance evaluation,... (read more)
Protecting Against Rapid-Rise Hydrocarbon Fires
Hydrocarbon fires can reach excessively high temperatures in a matter of minutes — or less. Structural steel under load can lose 20 percent of its yield strength at 950 F (500 C), and over half of its integrity at 1100 F (593 C). A near-total depletion of strength quickly follows at 2200 F (1204 C).
Under conditio... (read more)
Preventing Corrosion Under Insulation
CUI is one of the costliest problems facing the hydrocarbon processing environment today. Infiltration by outside moisture or from the process environment through seams, gaps or other discontinuities in steel under insulation can lead to major equipment outages. Whether from periodic inspection and maintenance or due to a catastrophic f... (read more)
Sherwin-Williams has added a new product to the Macropoxy family of versatile, high performance coatings - Macropoxy® 80, a high-build HAPs-free epoxy formulated for application over marginally prepared steel substrates and damp surfaces. The coating combats corrosion from both immersion and atmospheric exposures and can be applied at temperatures as low as 0o F (-18... (read more)
The movement to produce, liquefy, store and transfer natural gas at sea brings to the forefront a new concern in the risk assessment stages of any floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project: how to protect the vessel and support structures from the catastrophic effects of a cryogenic LNG spill on a steel substrate.

Sherwin-Williams was chosen by Atlantic Painting (Oak Lawn, Ill.) to supply high-performance protective coatings for the Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT) I-90 Innerbelt Bridge project. Coating work is now underway on the 1.8 million square feet of steel that comprise the westbound span over the Cuyahoga River. (read more)
For 39 years, U.S. Coast Guard Lightship Nantucket/LV-112 guided transatlantic shipping from Nantucket Shoals lightship station to and from the east coast and Europe - notably, in the most treacherous shipping lanes. LV-112 was the most remote lightship station in the world, 100 miles off the mainland, in international waters. Following decommissioning in 1975, LV-112 fell into di... (read more)
