High Build Epoxy coating for Offshore Corrosion Protection

The Canusa HBE-OS is the only liquid coating of its kind serving the offshore marketplace.

It is a two-component epoxy coating system specifically formulated to withstand immediate force-curing at high build thicknesses, and achieve superior mechanical performance and corrosion resistance. The HBE-OS coating design allows for the fastest offshore cycle-times and protects operating pipelines up to 120°C (248°F). This environmentally friendly, 100% solids, novolac epoxy system can either be spray applied or brush applied to the intended bare steel substrate.

Reduced Installation Temperatures

  • HBE-OS requires significantly lower application temperatures (110°C) vs FBE (250°C) resulting in reduced installation times

State-of-the-Art Formulation

  • The high build coating is designed to be force cured at 110°C (230°F) after application to achieve 60-90 second cure times and perfect porosity ratings

Exceeds FBE Performance Requirements

  • HBE-OS exceeds FBE performance as specified in USA, British and Canadian test standards

High Temperature Corrosion Protection

  • HBE-OS coating system was designed to protect operating pipelines up to 120°C (248°F)

High Build in Single Coat

  • A single pass application direct-to-metal will achieve a high build coating thickness of 20-40 mils (500-1000 microns) 

Offshore Uses

  • Mainline pipelines, rehabilitation projects, girth weld field joints, damage and holiday repair to FBE, pipeline valves, fittings and bends
