Recent advances in thermal spray techniques enable thermal spray aluminum coatings to reliably protect offshore oil and gas platform structures. This article presents a case study of preparing thermal spray aluminum coatings to protect steel structures in the splash zone. Testing and industry experience in marine environments indicate that aluminum coatings are a long-term solution for protection of hot risers in submerged, splash zone, and atmospheric service environments.
