Preventing and Solving Delamination During Multilayer Pipeline Girth Weld Coating Application

This article examines the use of fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) and mulitayer polyolefin coating systems for pipelines, focusing on efforts to mitigate delamination that sometimes occurs between the FBE and the steel in the girth weld area of the coated pipes. The author discusses causes of disbondment and the degradation process, and he offers a number of suggestions on how to minimize the possibility of delamination in the cutback area.
