Coatings+ Conference

Coatings+ Conference

Joe Davis, Vice President, Product and Application Engineering, will be speaking at the Coatings+ Conference, sponsored by AMPP, from 2:00 pm – 2:30 pm on Tuesday, December 14 during the Oil and Gas Sessions.

Davis’ presentation, Creating and Applying a Single Coat Nano Nonskid Deck Epoxy, is described as follows:

“The Offshore Oil and Gas environment is among the most corrosive in the world.  It is also one of the most dangerous.  Providing safe working surfaces is a requirement of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and is desired by asset owners and contractors alike.  Balancing safety with production, downtime, and turn-around times is always a battle, but one coating manufacturer seems to have solved these issues through its development of a single coat zinc carbon nanotube (CNT) non-skid epoxy deck coat that provides galvanic protection via the sacrificial metal’s electron transfer along the CNT quantum network.  The nano non-skid coating is a single coat solution and is ready for service in under 24 hours. 

This paper (and presentation) will highlight some of the formulation challenges encountered when developing this first of its kind deck coating, address how this single coat application improves efficiency over other multi coat applied products and outlines the ease of installation with some traditional and new application approaches.”

The conference, which will be held from December 13-16 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, AZ, is focused on surface preparation, application, coating formulation, testing, inspection, and green coatings solutions.
