Current protective coating technology for oil and gas pipelines is recognized to have both technical and economic disadvantages. Many factors contribute to the complexity of designing efficient pipeline coating formulations; climate, properties of the substrate traveling through the pipeline, product flammability and rate of flow to name a few. In addition it must be taken into consideration if the pipeline is laid underwater, under ground or above ground and the coating must be formulated to provide long term internal and external durability, the coating must be formulated with some basic tenets in mind.
