Elastomer coating on risers as a form of corrosion protection is an extremely popular solution with owners of oil & gas platforms. It is widely recognized in the offshore industry as the most effective method of riser corrosion protection particularly in the highly corrosive splashzone region.
There are two common elastomeric coatings on the market today: polychloroprene (neoprene) and EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer). Trelleborg can add a variety of protective properties to your elastomer coating based on your protection needs. For example, an antifouling coating can be added to the elastomer to inhibit the attachment and growth of marine organisms. The specific method is to chemically bond a piece of Cu/Ni 90/10 alloy plate with the elastomer, or spray Cu/Ni 90/10 particles on the chloroprene plate, and then chemically bond with the riser rubber coating.
