Coating systems used in oil and gas pipelines.
|Coating system||Pros||Cons||Representative literature|
|Coal tar enamel coatings||Fair adhesion to different types of steel materials||Risk to human health due to used materials||[88, 89]|
|Plant-applied tape systems||Good adhesion to different types of steel materials||Possibilities of blistering occurring under stress||[90, 91]|
|Polyolefin with butyl adhesive||Environmental friendship with less pollution||Low adhesion strength for steel materials and disbondment caused by cathodic protection||[92, 93]|
|Epoxy (fusion-bonded)||Excellent adhesion to different types of steel materials and good resistance to disbondment caused by cathodic protection||Limited resistance to abrasion||[94, 95]|
|Metallic spray coatings||Low cost for various working environments||Possibility of low adhesion to certain types of steel materials||[96, 97]|
