Proven, long-lasting protection for subsea systems

The protection of subsea equipment is moving more and more into conditions where it is being operated in extreme depths, temperatures and pressures.

PPG is recognized as a market leader in this sector with a particular specialism in the development of systems for these harsh conditions. Our coatings solutions have been extensively proven in the field, having been utilized on numerous projects worldwide in the most hostile environments.

The durable performance of our subsea coating systems is illustrated by the success of our widely used PHENGUARD™ coating, which was selected by Statoil in 2004 as the best candidate for the corrosion protection of the Kristin subsea development project. The flowing wellhead temperature of 162°C (323°F) represented the hottest wet subsea manifold temperature encountered up to the time that the Statoil study was completed. The PHENGUARD system was chosen after this study as the preferred corrosion protection coating for the high-temperature piping and as a primer under thermal insulation for this challenging project.
