Insulation for piping is a require from both a process and safety point of view. However, the location and the environment that the piping is subjected to can cause the undesirable effects of corrosion under insulation (CUI). This insidious corrosion process has led to deaths, injuries and loss of production in industries

Many strategies may be employed to try and mitigate CUI, including the use of special pigmented organic coatings which provides the properties of an insulation layer while also providing an effective corrosion barrier. Specific characteristics of the TIC’s are investigated, such as the thermal conductivity, corrosion barrier properties and the associated economic implications relating to the installation and maintenance of TIC’s. Finally, a discussion is tabled to investigate the health and safety based proposition for applying TIC’s.

The Speakers:

Philip Lagrange has been Involved in thermal insulation coatings technology for 15 years (Metaltec) and anti-corrosion high performances coatings (MCU) for more than 20 years.

Graham Carlisle is the Principal Corrosion and Coating Engineer for IAS Group Pty Ltd. He has worked in the coatings industry for over 23 years;
