Designed as a flexible epoxy-based intumescent passive fire protection (PFP) coating, PITT-CHAR XP coating can prevent steel structures from heating up rapidly in the event of a fire by providing insulative protection against high temperatures.
Donald Le, PPG global offshore segment manager, will attend the event along with Richard Holliday, PPG’s new global hydrocarbon PFP director.
“With growing interest in LNG (liquefied natural gas) projects balanced with budget cuts widespread across the oil and gas industry, owners and engineers need to minimize fabrication and construction spend wherever possible," Le said. He added that when it comes to PFP and CSP, using PITT-CHAR XP coating’s 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 tank linings, zinc-rich primers, general-purpose epoxy primers, splash zone and subsea coatings, and durable finishes, combined with its hydrocarbon PFP/CSP offering.
