Non-Hg insulation joint coating achieves environmental compliance without sacrificing performance ///

Proven flow assurance technologies are more critical than ever, to help access oil and gas resources from more extreme environments—safely and responsibly. For decades, applicators of field joint insulation relied on the high-performance characteristics of formulations containing mercury (Hg) catalysts. Critical performance characteristics of these Hg-catalyzed, field joint materials included excellent adhesion to different substrates, outstanding hydrothermal aging, robust processability, and fast build of compressive strength, among other robust mechanical properties.
