How to choose a protective coating
Due to a wide variety of paints and varnishes it is often quite difficult to independently choose a complex coating that will meet all the requirements and provide the necessary level of protection of structures against corrosion
Basic criteria for the right choice of protective coating
Protected surface type:
- Concrete and reinforced concrete structures
- Abrasive blasting
- Manual or mechanical tool
Environmental corrosivity category:
ISO 12944 STANDARD
- C1 - very low
- C2 - low
- C3 - medium
- C4 - high
- C5-I - very high (industrial)
- C5-M - very high (marine)
- Im1 - fresh water
- Im2 - sea water
- Im3 - soil
SNIP (Construction Norms & Regulations) 2.03.11-85
- Non aggressive
- Slightly aggressive
- Moderately aggressive
- Very aggressive
Based on the products manufactured, the VMP specialists developed coating systems for media with varying degrees of corrosion activity.
Required coating service life:
- Low - from 2 till 5 years
- Medium - from 5 till 15 years
- High - over 15 years
VMP Holding specializes in the development of coatings with high and medium service life
Conditions for applying a corrosion-resistant coating:
- Winter season
- Summer season
- Construction site
VMP range includes
VMP coating materials are formulated for
painting works and application of materials both at the factory-manufacturer of metal structures, and directly at the installation site, as well as in various climatic conditions
When choosing a coating system, you can refer to the current industry regulatory documents, enterprise standards and state standards.
The list of documents can be found in the section Certification.
VMP can offer coating options with medium service life based on materials from the “middle” price segment.
It should be taken into account that one-time savings on the initial cost of creating a protective coating entails significant costs for further repair of the coating.
During 15 years of operation of the facility
The total cost of creating and operating a coating of traditional materials is 2-3 times higher than the cost.
The increase in the cost of operating coatings is associated with the need for periodic restoration. It is necessary to take into account the increase in costs for the annual inflation rate, the remoteness of the location of oil and gas facilities, while the economic efficiency of using durable coating systems will increase significantly.
