Surface-Tolerant Coating

Last updated: July 5, 2017

What Does Surface-Tolerant Coating Mean?

A surface-tolerant coating is a fluid substance that is applied to a metallic surface to prevent corrosion. Surface-tolerant coatings differ from regular coatings due to their suitability on surfaces that have been prepared with a lesser degree of preparation than commercial blast cleaning.


Corrosionpedia Explains Surface-Tolerant Coating

The selection of an appropriate surface-tolerant coating depends on the type of surface to which it is to be applied. Such variations include aged alkyd, loose, stratified or greasy surfaces.

Some surface-tolerant coatings may also be suitable for protection in both open air and immersion conditions. Typical applications include:

  • Storage tanks
  • Piping, roof decks and water towers
  • Structural steel and plant equipment
  • Marine vessels and offshore structures
  • Other surfaces exposed to humidity, chemicals and corrosive environments
