Protection of splash zone areas of offshore facilities with ultra-high solids glass flake epoxies

In the past, glass flake filled epoxy resins, with a solids content of 75-90% had been widely used within the oil and gas industry for the protection of the vulnerable splash zone areas (the area which is repeatedly immersed then exposed to the atmosphere) which often suffer from extensive corrosion. With the focus for offshore development now increasingly shared between oil and gas and wind power with its very different construction needs, we look at how ultra-high solids glass flake filled epoxy resins offer benefits for fixed and floating construction projects offshore.
