Pcp Orientation Presentation

  1. 1. Introduction to Pre Primed Plate
  2. 2. <ul><li> </li></ul>
  3. 3. Agenda <ul><li>Types and brands of primers from Blastech </li></ul><ul><li>Key properties of REDI -PLATE </li></ul><ul><li>Key advantage s of pre primed plate </li></ul><ul><li>Blastech’s REDI-PLATE process. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Typical Concerns <ul><li>Cannot weld through paint </li></ul><ul><li>Zinc will be a problem for the welders </li></ul><ul><li>Cannot know it was blasted to specification </li></ul><ul><li>It will be destroyed while fabricating </li></ul><ul><li>The recoat window will be missed </li></ul><ul><li>My specification will require it blasted off </li></ul>
  5. 5. Pre-Construction Primers - History <ul><li>First Developed in the 50’s </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most important innovations in marine coatings technology </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to increase through put and protect steel during the building process </li></ul>
  6. 6. What are Pre-Construction Primers? <ul><li>Typically thin film coatings, automatically sprayed to abrasive blast cleaned steel prior to fabrication. These are commonly called: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre-construction primers (PCP) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre-fabrication primers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Weldable primers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shop Primers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nippe </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Pre-Construction Primers are different from typical paint Traditional Inorganic Zinc Weldable Inorganic Zinc
  8. 8. Primers available at Blastech <ul><li>Redi-Plate (solvent based inorganic zinc) PCP </li></ul><ul><li>Water based inorganic zinc PCP </li></ul><ul><li>Epoxy PCP (special applications) </li></ul><ul><li>REDI-PLATE ED (Extended Durability) </li></ul><ul><li>CPP (Clear plate preservative) </li></ul><ul><li>Any other paint by special inquiry ( We are in the painting business!!) </li></ul>
  9. 9. REDI-PLATE Features <ul><li>Super resistance to high temperatures </li></ul><ul><li>Excellent anti-corrosive protection even after heating to 1,475 degrees Fahrenheit </li></ul><ul><li>Minimal secondary surface preparation </li></ul><ul><li>Wide over coating capability </li></ul><ul><li>Compatible with high speed automated welding </li></ul><ul><li>Compatible with high speed plasma and laser cutting </li></ul><ul><li>Low production of zinc fume during welding and cutting </li></ul>
  10. 10. Benefits of REDI-PLATE™ <ul><li>Increase throughput in fabrication process. </li></ul><ul><li>Proven to save time and money through reductions in secondary surface preparation. </li></ul><ul><li>Better work environment </li></ul><ul><li>Elimination of open abrasive blasting </li></ul><ul><li>Improved health, productivity, safety and quality </li></ul>
  11. 11. Additional Benefits <ul><li>Removes painting bottlenecks </li></ul><ul><li>Weld spatter removal savings </li></ul><ul><li>Defective plate reduction </li></ul><ul><li>Transportation savings ( in supply chain) </li></ul>
  12. 12. Excellent Welding Performance <ul><li>Fully compatible with most advanced welding processes and consumables: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>semi automatic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>fully automatic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>robotic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Improved welding speeds </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced porosity levels and repairs </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced burn damage </li></ul><ul><li>Low weld spatter adhesion </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced distortion </li></ul><ul><li>Lloyd’s/DNV/ABS certified </li></ul><ul><li>CWB/API certified </li></ul>
  13. 15. Spatter on mill scale Spatter on CPP Spatter on Blast only
  14. 16. Reduced Sandblast Costs <ul><li>Typical production rate to blast mill scale plate is 200 square foot per hour </li></ul><ul><li>Typical rate to completely remove PCP is 600 square foot per hour </li></ul><ul><li>Typical rate to sweep blast PCP is 1000 square feet per hour. </li></ul>
  15. 18. Blastech Plate Line - Automated Blasting and Coating Process
  16. 19. Plate Entering Process <ul><li>Programmable Cranes </li></ul><ul><li>Continual process </li></ul><ul><li>Constantly monitored </li></ul>
  17. 20. Surface Preparation <ul><li>SSPC SP10, SA 2.5 Near White Metal Specification </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic centrifugal wheel blasting with shot and grit mixture </li></ul><ul><li>Sharp, dense, angular profile of 1.5 - 2.5 mils depth </li></ul>
  18. 21. Application of PCP <ul><li>Automatic computer controlled system to </li></ul><ul><li>Two reciprocators </li></ul><ul><li>Enclosed spray booth to capture and burn VOCs </li></ul>
  19. 22. Coating Inspection <ul><li>Reference Samples </li></ul><ul><li>Testex tape attached to panel </li></ul><ul><li>Inspect dry film thickness in-process </li></ul><ul><li>Retained as permanent record </li></ul>
  20. 23. Quality Documentation The details of every plate processed are permanently recorded
  21. 26. Tank roof after 12 months exposure
  22. 27.
