Customer Location:

Production Rig North Sea


Application Date:

May 2007


Application Situation:

Weathering of the original paint system on high temperature Duplex lines.

Belzona® 5851 (HA Barrier)





Application Method:

Application carried out in accordance with modified Belzona System Leaflet VPF-2. The pipe- work was wet-blasted to remove poorly adhering paintwork and any salts from the substrate.


Belzona Facts:

Allowing the application to be carried out whilst the platform was live meant that the platform did not have to shut down. Cost of shutdown in lost production is measured in millions of dollars a day. Testimonial received from RBG highlighting the benefits of the System.
